Hey MT35, I was wondering if your program can help me with fabrication on my 89 chassis. I was thinking about a computer generated see through 89 body and have the engine/trans, front/rear axles and transfer case within the body. Then I could design the chassis within the parameters of the body. I could take pictures of all these components and scale them out.  Is that possible? Does your program work that way? Thanks in advance....BWD

The program is basically like a flat sheet of paper, anything that I am capable of drawing onto that sheet, it can be done, a see through version of the body is not a problem to make.    Getting each part that i draw to scale is questionable.  In order to do that, i would have to see a fairly good quality picture of each part, as well as at least 2 measurements.  (for example: the engine from front to back is 4 foot 2 inches exactly, the axle is 5 foot etc)    To help me render as exact as i possibly can, a side shot of all parts like youngbat was talking about would be the easiest to get proportions as exact as possible.     A dead straight view, and a straight rear view would be easy too.   3D views are harder to make due to the perspective differences per piece.  The program doesn't know what Im drawing, it just sees it as a square, circle, triangle, octagon, etc.   I would be more than happy to help you with this project if you like.   Just shoot me some pictures in my email.      

Also if you get a chance, i could use some help with something i have been trying to find for a while, IF you know of ANYONE who can identify the series of these wheels i would be MOST grateful, I was told they are American Racing Wheels, but i dont know what series, therefore i cant find them for sale anywhere because i cant identify them. 

Here is a picture of what im talking about.  Sorry I dont have a better picture of the wheels im looking for, These are the only exhisting pictures i have of the wheels.

love that silver camaro....always did.

Yeah i too was seriously bummed by the news of Heath Ledger. Although I haven't seen anything with him in a prominent role, I hear he was an oscar style actor. The Dark Knight already was going to break some Box Office records, this certainly may put it over the top, being it's heath's last performance (I think).

For the record, Spiderman is the biggest money making superhero in films....not to bring the wall crawler into the forum, but Dark Knight may beat it this time. maybe.





...does it come in black?

Well Chilebean, I have actually had a few minutes here and there to work on my 1/6 Batmobile, i have been straightening out the driver side, and building up the driver side headlight.  If you recall from the last picture on the build, the driver side headlight is slightly drooping.   My focus the past few days has been the rear jet outlet as well as the wings.   I'm doing my best to see that they are as symetrical as possible.   I would post pictures but my camera is MIA'ed, so as soon as i can figure out that one i will share my small improvements.

Things just havent been going easy these past few days, i actually took friday off work because i was so overwhelmed with stress that i was ready to pull my hair out.   We were so close on finishing up this ordeal with the new house i was buying, and then the guy told me that my monthly payment was going to be more than i could afford,  so now im being transfered to another agency who says they can get me more in the monthly payment i want to make, as well as consoladate a loan i have out with my home.  My sister and i literally had a FIST FIGHT this sunday, i got a bloody lip from it, that didnt help things.   My wife has been terribly sick this past week, so much that she hasnt been able to sleep, nor keep any food down, and since she is 4 months pregnant, i dont know what is safe to give her.   So we ended up spending our morning since 3am at the emergency room because her OBGYN didnt give us the sheet that tells us whats safe to take and whats not.   Work has been piling up, i somehow got stickled into supplying 3 other budweisers (2 in Alabama, and 1 in Georgia) with MY artwork, becuase they dont want to do their own.  (their excuse was "mine looks better, than theirs")  So yeah, lately i have had only the urge to go home, get a cup of hot chocolate and watch my 2 channels of TV we get reception on lol.

Im sorry to sound like im ranting.  I just wanted to let you all know why things havent been progressing on my build as they once were.
