I got down to some foam body plug forming, using the Monza SS as my basic inspiration, but upsizing it to fit the width of the production Corvair chassis. The front and rear fiberglass clips will be removable, to make the chassis more easily serviced.
Here, the body is pretty well shaped and I've moved up to 17" wheels and tires. The windshield plug will provide both the full-height and cut-down plexiglass panels. The 'roll bar' section will be a separate, bonded part, just like on the original car.
The size thing worked out really well. In order to fit the LM track and stay in proportion, the entire body was sized 6% larger than the original, and that oversize gave me a wheelbase of 93", which will give the car better overall balance. As a bonus, the interior now fits full size adults, too!
