Re: 73 Camaro

I made the harness for the driver's seat. A couple different kinds of tape, some hand cut Mylar and some custom made decals.
They are Schroth ASM (Anti-Submarining) so there is an electronic inertia reel that mounts into the back seat. I just took off the Momo pads on the real car, but since they were on it for 20-some years I thought I'd put them on the model.

Looks real nice in blue, such a classic color.

Re: 73 Camaro

Harness installed on the seat. The fabric is velour and was replicated by adding talc to the paint. I misplaced the head rest I already made so I made a new one thus guaranteeing the lost one will appear soon. The headrest knob was machined from aluminum with the proper 9 notches in it.

Re: 73 Camaro

Re: 73 Camaro

I forgot the fire extinguisher when I was finishing up the interior. So I made one. The bottle is aluminum turned on the lathe; the handle is carved from styrene with a stretched sprue nozzle and a piece of tubing for the gauge. I used the art I already drew for a 1/12 scale extinguisher and reduced it and printed it. The strap on the real car is Velcro; I used electrical tape on the model.

Re: 73 Camaro

Something solvent based apparently leaked (probably over two years ago) and the corner of the box soaked some of it up and the windshield just happened to be in that part of the box and was damaged. It also has some scratches I knew I'd have to remove so it's just a little more work than planned now…

Re: 73 Camaro

Thanks! Seems like everything at this stage needs more work than I expected...

The chrome on the bumpers wasn't the greatest and the rear was pretty bad on one side. And that isn't even considering the inherent mold lines.

Rather than strip the chrome I sanded them smooth down to the plastic and BMF'ed them.
