    Classics Bumblebee Reshell (UPDATE)

    Updates! Sorry for the picture quality but I have yet to locate my good camera from recently moving. I started back on this and these are the updated photos of the progress as of today.
    This guy will be finished this week or by Wednesday of next week! I'm really digging the worn "Junkyard" look of this build.

    Right on! I love seeing deluxe " especially classics" modded or in this case reshelled. Can't wait to see more.

    That's coming along great. And it's looking alot less squatted and bulky than some of the Alternator BB reshells that have been done. :thumbs2:
