    Bruckell Milano of Bruckell Marina, something in that style

    ...And the top-of-the-line model could be called Gran Milano or Gran Marina

    I find that one overrated in my opinion. Also it's a little too sharp for my liking, I like the more rounded fueselaged bodies of the 70's chryslers.

    Yeah that is true, but I am talking about the more rounded style like the coke bottle chargers, or chrysler newports, stuff like that.

    Yes and no....all the Mopars since the 60s are true unibodies, whether they're A, B, C or E-bodies.
    There are no subframes to speak of, in the sense that the relevant parts are part of the unibody. If you want to take them off the chassis, a lot of cutting will be required...
    This is different from GM's F-bodies, for example which have an actual, detachable front subframe for the front suspension and the engine.

    so the frame part of the underbody should be modeled connected to the frame instead of a seperate piece?

    Here's another thing I'd like the address. I've been following Dodge Charger frame pics since I'm having trouble finding reference for stripped Monacos. I feel like I made the strut towers too far apart because in the Charger they are a bit closer together.

    I could move them closer like so but if I do they won't match up to where the fender meets and I can't lengthen the fender. unnamed.jpg Screenshot1182.png Screenshot1183.png

    It's not cool, it's a genuine concern. I'm trying to build a quality mod here guys.

    sorry, i think i read it too fast.
    that is an issue, but this doesnt have to be a perfectly scale car. Especially if you want to make it lore-friendly

    The lore friendly model will come afterwards, I would like to get the real model as accurate as I can, within reason since for games you can only model sooo much detail.

    I completed the first layer of the underbody. Lots of lots of work, took me a few weeks but it's done. Still needs the frame part, and all the suspension bits but I may need a break from that. Maybe I should make some wheels next for proper reference of how far the axle should be from the body.
