    Looks like they are using the standard front sheetmetal, hopefully they don't put stubby bumpers on the front. The full bumper looks better.
    Interested in the extra frame rail and crossmember setup, wonder what gives.

    Looks like they built a full frame under the car and threw the stub away. Looks heavy, they should have lightened the original rear frame rails if they aren't doing anything.

    I am sure they are using one of Schwartz's full frames under it

    You know... all the 70-73's I see around have the RS front end. I'd like to see a few full bumpers in person.


    I get real tired of everyone using essentially the same damned parts though. If you're a high-end, custom fabrication shop, fabricate something that's custom and high-end. I liked what the ring brothers did with the gas neck on that one they did. I also liked the (Spectre?) camaro where they put CAI's where the RS turn signal were. Covan's dashes, crate engines, Foose wheels, Autometer gauges, Cowl hoods....... ***yawn***

    I priced a roller chassis, lowest options at close to 19k. I'm sure that's without wheels and tires.:eek:
    Put a body on there with all the hardware, interior,trim, and paint. You have another 10-15k. Engine/transmission, 10k or more.
    I'm seeing close to 50k in materials going into this build.:confused: I'm sure over 60k with guages, interior, glass, exhaust, and components.
    Labor cost could rack up to 30k easy.

    But if it looks like every other Camero (<- spelled that way on purpose) how can you call yourself a custom fabrication shop?

    I'm not impressed with someone throwing money at a build - I can see that all day long on the internet. I want to see something different - The guys who did the small tube frame chassis... THAT was cool. Buying a $25k chassis and putting it under a repop body... how much imagination and fabrication skills does that take? As far as I am concerned, all you did was write a check and follow the instructions to put it together. <-- FAIL at custom fabrication.
