I would love to see all the mounting areas where the chassis parts meet the body. Also - that is an INSANE amount of work!

a frame was constructed to hold the c5 chassis componets. then the body will be bolted to that. the quarters are now in place and the bodywork complete. so into the booth for primer.

This build is amazing. I love how tidy that engine is. I hope mine looks that nice when I'm done. I also like how you nonchalantly gloss over the fact that there is a Lamborghini Countach in your parking lot. Your pictures are frickin hysterical. lol
