Past Builds by Audio-Concepts

Recommended Posts

As the title states these are some past builds I have done. These are just a few of my builds, there are many, but just some of my favorites!

I will start with a box build for an old boss. The box was fabricated while I was not able to do body work, due to a broken collar bone, so all was done while in a fixed sling!

Enjoy the pics!

The vehicle!

Now project number 2 is a hood I built for a 66 Nova drag car! The car came in for a full paint job, motor swap, and some misc goodies!

I did the hood fabrication, body work and paint, as well as the bracket for the fuel regulator and mechanical linkage for the twin Demon 1050 carbs to feed the 565 BB

We will start off with the car itself!

ya have been toying with ideas on a good car to do from fiero to corvettes saturn sc2 seem intresting but like your saying just don't got the cash to turbo one etc.... see reason for those three ther space frame with plastic bodys and do not rust out.the two that i have the most intrest in right now are the vette andthe sc2 you may live in a desert and be able to own a decent car sine i do not live in a desert i got to imprvize lol's the 1986 to abouyt 1989 vettes are dirt cheap right now were i live same with fiero and sc2's and there either plastic or fiberglass bodys .best one would be the vette,but the sc2 would not be bad either. and the fiero with a l67 or a 350 chevy in it would not be bad either. any ways if you need idea on cars what about taking a firebird and swaping in a l67 to a v6 fire bird lol's the l67 is a super charger version of the 3.8 in the gtp and regal gs etc... you would need mega squirt to do it . if you do not know mega squirt google it lol's any ways you do good work keep the pic rolling.
