This is an Auto World third gen Camaro from their (I believe) defunct premium series. It’s a really great casting, but all of their “premium” cars were saddled with one fatal flaw, the same set of plastic over-sized wheels that looks wrong on pretty much everything. Like a flesh colored band-aid that matches nobody’s flesh.

I still love the casting enough to have collected all the variants, but this one I customized with a set of M2 wheels that are pretty dead-on for later Camaro IROC wheels. This required a TON of cutting, grinding and clearancing on the chassis, as well as on the interior piece. The interior piece is so thin over the rear wheels, that it’s not even paper thin. It kind of looks like 80's GM fabric that’s water damaged ... strangely appropriate actually.

I think the wheels fit it perfectly, and I say I nailed the stance if I do say so myself.

There’s one big problem, and it’s the reason I’ve never showed this before, even though I finished it nearly two years ago. I decided to use super glue to attatch the base back to the body ... that did not go well to say the least. There are super glue finger prints on both the body and the windshield. I was so pissed off at myself, I couldn’t even look at this car for a year. I haven’t finished a custom since.

Since I can only see the flaws, give me an honest assessment LaLD. How does it look in the pics?
