Heres my 62 Impala as of yesterday morning......

Posted Image

And here is where I am at now......


I painted the chassis with gray primer followed by body color overspray (Black) around the edges, and then masked and painted the frame rails gloss black, and to add a little bit more detail, I sprayed black in a textured pattern in the wheel wells to simulate undercoating

And here is a mockup of the ride height which will be lowered some before it is finished.

We've got some awesome builds in this so far, I cant wait to see how they all turn out!

I got some work started on the Dart, I was expecting the 64 chassis to drop right in but when I fitted it I found a few places where the 2 kits don't match up well.

So a little cutting at the front and rear and it did fall into place.

The front is going to need some more work but this time I'm going to have to cut into the body, the radiator core support is going to have to go. Thats not a bad thing as I didn't like the round posts molded in place, but the depth of the grille surround is also going to have to be shortened. I've already checked and it won't cause any problems with the grille and will probably make the underhood area look better anyway.

Slant ain t it nice how easy it s done in scale. Much more work in the real world to get a chassi from an other car fitted.

Nice buids you got guys. Just have to go on building my Ac ace.

Still moving but I was able to get a picture of the box and it's ingredients... This should build a nice 1962 Porsche 356B Carrera Cabby.

I've had the kit for about 20 years. I guess it's time to do something with it.

And thus begins the journey of the 1960 Cor-Vex.

Major parts of the multi part body have been assembled. Since my kit had no chrome sheet I'm trying my hand at Winfield-esque styling. A resized, parts box, custom grill/pan has been added as well as scratch headlight brows.

If the back end reminds you of the '54 Wildcat Concept, it's no coincidence, but I'll take some liberties.

Aircraft drop tank halves come in handy. Just not sure if I'll keep them yet. Still lots of filling and shaping to do.

I've started my '57 Chrysler 300C for this CBP. Engine is painted gold, and transmission is silver. This will be fully rebuilt car, so color choices are bit different than original ones were.

Cool builds allready starting to pop up, I like it! I`ve seen what perverse creations that Luna, Jantrix and Slant are capable of. It`ll be good to see what the rest of you are going to be up to. I have a feeling mine will be pretty mild compared to most.

BK,I`ve built that 62 409 before. Its a nice kit and lends itself well to mods, you`ll like building it.

First time Cannonballer here - but, c'mon, 1962 is my favorite year for cars. Actually, might do something earlier...I love this idea. I've got to go to the stash and figure something to build (already have a 62 t bird going, so that's out for me).

All the work so far looks good - hope I don't drag it down.

Well that's the cool thing Erik, everybody's at their own place. We need your flavorings for this Mulligan stew.

ARC, not sure how perverse I can be this year. I might have to settle for just downright slanderous.

The resculped nose looks like its coming along Patrik. The grille on the 1:1 Ace looks a little taller than the Cobra maybe you could open up the bottom a little more to make it look a little closer. Other than that it looks like the sanding it smooth should finish it off.

Ron - I am in. I'll be building a '48 Ford. I am using the custom version but will be built kind of stock looking. Power will be a state of the art 1962 power plant. Really like the idea of limiting the build to 1962 specs - made me sit and think this through!

Patrik - that will be a cool and unique build - wish I could help you with ideas, but that is a blank spot for me!
