Finished rear panels

Added a 2.5 lb chrome fire extinguher and a Mag flash light.


Pretty much done, just a couple little things.

HaHa, thats funny, are they really ever done.

Now its time to plan custom hood scoop, engine mods & other stuff.

painted my 1:18 Astro to match my full size Astro. I plan to make 1:18 scale pro street rims & tires fit it, kinda like a Mini-Me.

Thank you al55 & Bikertrash.

Down to 12 days til Nats.

Cant see much of my LS1, pretty packed in there, barely see half the intake.

It is a pretty impressive motor and doesnt take much for more horsepower. Being all aluminum, it weighs less than the 4.3 that the Astro came with.

The trucks & vans have pretty much the same motor, just not all aluminum, but are more plentiful & cheaper.

Havent been on here in awhile, my Astro is parked for the winter. Have some plans for the winter - wing, parachute, NOS, cam and an air pan & hood scoop. May not get to all of them, but did scratch one of the list, new tires. Mickey Thompson S/R radials. fronts are 24x5 & the rears are 33x22.

Thats a whole lot of rubber there ! LOVE THEM ! I also love the Mini mini van ! I would look for a Pro Street Chevelle or ________ in the same scale as the Astro, steal the rear axle from it for the Astro model. . . . get you real close to the look of the real deal.
