Though I would try to get this one done for the motm build. Using the amt dirty donny pro street superbee as the basis for the the build. Will be using a 440 instead of the usual hemi for something a little different and will be using the top end from one of the monogram pro stock kits and the valve covers from the christine pro sportsman kit. Found the rims in the parts box and will be swapping out the rear tyres for some goodyear slicks. Working out the rear end at the moment and will scratch up a set of wheelie bars and mounting for a chute. Body wise have already installed a pro stock scoop, will remove the turn signals and scratch up a rear wing. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

Thanks poet, going through my parts boxes came across an old build up of the 57 pro sportsman that I picked up in a junk lot that was assembled but never painted which should be easier to use as I will put the pro street chassis towards another build I have planned. Will have to modify the floor pan as its about a 1/4 of an inch too short, then will have to extend the chassis and roll cage as well as modifying the roll cage to suit the interior.

Thanks Dale, got the floor pan lengthened today so the wheels align up in the right location to the body and will finish off the trans tunnel tonight along with removing the rear section of the chassis so I can get the rear end fitted up correctly. Have also modified the rear shock locations and drilled out the location just a bit larger than the springs so now the rear end sits up higher bringing the body down lower to the ground.
Thanks Dale and Dennis for the comments. Notice last night that the scoop no longer aligns up with the motor so had another spare bonnet that had the cut out for the scoop from another kit, so now in the process of making up a cowl induction scoop for it which still needs finishing off.
