Looking Good so far Jeff! You are true artist, the body has changed alot from the start and you have done huge modifications to create beautiful ProMod body. I'd like to try too, but maybe it would end up as a pile of junk plastic. :lol:

Tremendous work Jeff !!

I'm not even a fan of most pro-mods but the bodywork and fitting of windows etc. on this one is OUTSTANDING !

Superb work Jeff. This one has to be your best by far. Clean lines and everything looks proportional from front to back and side to side.

Thanks for looking in guys, means a lot to me. I really love doing this bodywork stuff and glad you like it! Wayne, thanks man, means a lot coming from a master like you!

 

Wish I had some updates to post, will be working on finishing the front and side window treatments this week....hopefully I can finish the flares for bottom of sides that will wrap around the rear wheel opening and the bottom fascia.

 

Tyrone, I started this chassis for another build, all styrene glued with Plastruct Weldene...I think it just might work for this one. I'll keep you posted.

Hello all....few updates for this week. I've worked on the flares for bottom of sides and fender wells, they also wrap around the back to the wheelie bar cutout....got a slick coat of primer on too. Much, much slicker now. I've got some more window treatment to go before that is wrapped up. After that, I'll have some filling work in the headlight and tailight areas and this will be pretty close to final finishing....I hope! Thanks for looking in and commenting. Everyone keep up the great work.

Thanks for the comment guys...have not had much time to work on this week, couple small things though. I think I'm getting closer to finishing this PM body. I've done some filling around/smoothing the headlights and the tailight section. Also, I've re-shaped the lead-in to the bottom of front window, not sure if that noticeable in pix but in now flares up with a curve. I also decided to redo the air opening between the fog light recesses, changed that to protrude out instead of extrude in and squared the ends instead of tapered.

 

Next - still need to finish the window treatments and evaluate....fill, sand, primer, repeat! Door lines will probably be close to last.

Hi all....been taking a break from this one, sort of. Actually, I've been contemplating for a month or two on a big modification. I decided to go ahead with the plan.

 

For a while now, I've felt the body was too wide. So I broke down and made the mod this week with a nice wedge cut right down the center. 3/16" was removed from the width over top of frt fenderwells and around .14 removed from width over rear fenderwells. I've got a before shot with front width traced on an index card and an after shot over that to see the difference. Looks quite a bit more bullet-like and I'm satisfied with finally moving on towards the finish.....needs a bit of filler here and there, otherwise, the two halves went back together very well. This has been a fun journey so far and will try to finish b4 much longer. Thanks for looking in.
