Default Chevy SS

Well some of you may know i dismantled the Titan a little, sold the body, traded off the wheels/tires.

I was planning on putting the SS on the roller and getting some different tires, but i think im gonna go more scale instead.

Gonna have to get some different rims, need less offset, and theres not enough bead room to cut these and narrow them.
Will also be getting another set of Creeper tires, so i can make my set fit 2.8 wheels better.

Planning a new chassis as well....

Thanks Chev, think i can finish this one before we finish the Dodges ? LOL.

Mockup pics, this will be close to ride height i think, maybe a little lower.



Heres what i did with the left over tires, they were perfect
