 I have a client who want Chamois in a wall ped. I couldn't find any on the market. So I had to alter one. I started with a McKenzie shoulder form. In the second picture I cut the corner off the form. I the cut a piece of plywood to the shape I wanted the back to be. I then built the area up with foam. And when I got the shape I wanted I smoothed it all up with bondo. To some of you guys and gals this is probably elementry but maybe it will help someone.

 Kick my shoes off so they can't trace me

I mounted this little fellow yesterday I'll post more when finished. It also helps if you have a wall ped form handy of a white tail just to get an ideal when altering one. I didn't have one but have mounted allot of them.

Great tutorial, but study your reference you need to get the ears upright on a chamois, the ears let the mount down.
