Asylum, really dude? Hes put more effort into this project than you have with all of yours. Cut the man some slack old man. Go be grumpy else-where.

OP: keep up the good work man! Im glad to see this as a rolling chassis, body and all! You give alot of excitement and enjoyment to all us owners who only dream of having a RWD Beretta.

That car is gorgeous! I love seeing that kit in its entirety. The sides are molded in (or appear to be) like the quarter panel spoiler pieces, and that makes it look extra clean. Keep up the good work, man!

When you want to mimic that conversion using a different drivetrain, contact me. Time I do not have to devote, but will support a member in carrying out what I want to my own is an option!

Thanks guys !!! definitely wont let one bad seed ruin the mood. Car projects are a personal statement and are ever evolving. There is no right or wrong. You cant please everyone and there is no such thing as perfection. Im just doing something I enjoy. The show must go on !!!!!

Poppycock!

With the fabrications skills that are involved, and been demonstrated in this car, there is no reason the track of the car couldn't have been resolved, and the wheels tucked in properly.

This is a fabulous build, just not done right, IMHO!

'Nuff said!

As for the body crap, to each their own I suppose..

Sounds like an excuse to blend in some fender flairs to me!

I do agree that it looks a little funny with the wheels sticking out so far, but I'd keep the wider track and mod the body personally.

Awesome work so far though - looking forward to seeing it running!! :)

Lmao. Hey asylum how's your rwd swap going? Oh right. No pics in 10 pages or so even though you order a rear end that ended up being the wrong one. Just you continuously plugging a site that doesn't show a whole lot about the great work they do..

Your saying "building a car is not a summer hobby" how else do people learn??

Every time I see you post something I laugh cause I feel you never follow though on most of it..

I'm done.. jjanke have fun bud build it thwey way you want. I don't usually post but I had to. Sorry for the thread jack jjanke

Can we all just stop the back and forth banter.... I honestly don't feel like warning anyone or having to clean up a thread when it gets out of hand... If you don't have anything good to say about someone's build or them in general then DON'T POST ANYTHING! Pretty simple because otherwise it just turns into an ever growing ping pong ball.

Made some adaptor plates for the racing seats and re drilled some new mounting points on the factory camaro seats sliders. Pass side is just about done ......gotta order a manual seat bracket for the driver side so I can ditch the power one. They seem to fit great width wise (the door will still shut) and provide plenty of front to back adjustment
