Cool!  I had to go back and read the entire thread it was so neat.  I love saving things nobody else would try to save. Especially since that poor body somehow survived 50 plus years in it's broken state, it deserves to shine again!

I agree, seeing something that most would have just tossed in the can come back to life is a real pleasure, and your design sense is spot on for this project as well I think.

Thanks again for the continuing interest in this project. I'm going to try to have it done (maybe at least in all one color of primer??) by the ACME-sponsored NNL Southern Nats on Nov. 9, but with everything else I have to do in that time slot, including moving, it's going to be tough.

I was following this thread with great  interest in 2012 until life got in the way. Somehow, I forgot about it until this morning when I found the link to it. How has the project evolved since last you posted? After all that work, there is no way that you would give up. I am really taken with the idea of using fiberglass to make patch panels and mold parts. I used a lot of fiberglass in my shop when I was painting cars as I did a number of repairs on snow mobiles and even the occasional boat so I am somewhat familiar with the process but I never used it to actually duplicate parts - only for structural repairs. I'm going to do some experimenting here over the next while and see what I can accomplish as I have a couple of p;d annuals that are broken and have pieces missing. The fiberglass may be easier than cutting panels out and then cutting patch panels and trying to glue them into place and maintain some compound angles that have some tight spots on them that will be almost impossible to sand and get a good finish. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

I'm really enjoying watching you work.

 

And I love the way the car is looking!

Thanks for dredging this one up, gennelmen. Since last September I haven't had much modeling time at all. Real-life has been, as they say, too much with me. But I DID find a resin kit of this experimental prototype OHC Hemi at the recent NNL South event, and it's bumped the Phoenix to the first in line...when I get some more free time.

Bill, I would have sent you a complete styrene OHC HEMI...it's kitted in the MPC prostreet 1970 Coronet!

 

Glad you'll be back on this cool project again B)

Outstanding work, some of the best Ive ever seen. Would love to see a whole article on using fiberglass to make replacement parts, something even this dumb a** could do. How about it MCM ?
