Done! Apart from the top radiator hose.  It's not front shelf worthy, but it will do.

That side view looks so sporty, a shame the designers had trouble getting nice front ends. I don't remember any of the G.M. variants with a great front.
Very nice build, one of very few I've seen on the Net! Bravo.

Nice build. Very clean.

My first car was a Vega (same underpinnings). GM tried to copy the Ford Uni-body design and keep an uneven A arm suspension, and didn't use any upper shock tower type bracing... these were really throw away cars from the get go. Never designed to last. That's why you never see any on the road. Just the ones made into race cars are left.

Nice Chris, I've seen a few racers built up, but never a standard road car.

Thanks guys. I've seen just one on the roads in Australia, and that was 20 years ago. Still one or two racing in various series here.
