My next model will be the Revell 1965 chevy stepside. I want to do a split bumper setup for the front. Can someone quickly photoshop an image and post it because I don't know how good it would look?

EDIT: I decided not to do the split bumper but I want this to be something that a teen would use on a farm and then go and hang out with his friends. I will delete the turn signals and make a guard for the rear window. Help me think of some other body mods, please.

EDIT AGAIN: I will also have the headers comming out of the to of the front fenders. Stock wheels will be used.

Best I could do in a few minutes. I slid the bumper back closer to the body prior to splitting it. I used the lower part of the front of the hood, (the part with open vents) to create a front valance to go behind the bumper - would require a second hood. Anyhow, hope it helps.

Thanks. I was thinking have an extra grille between the bumpers but I will use this picture and use Photobucket.

OK lets go with this photo because it looks cool the way it is.
Now if you want to add your grille to this one,add it from the back side where the holes in the center of the bumper is.
That would be the only way to make it look more detailed.
The design looks good enough to me for what you wanted.

Just some food for thought most teen to mid twentys farm boys are puting stacks on there trucks lifting them and using them for mudding . At least here in NY where I live that's the case.

Patrick, try google images "1965 chevy stepside" or you could just ride around south ark, there's plenty of ideas sitting in yards in this area!

Down here if you see anything that old it will either be unrestored rusting in a yard or fully restored and in the weeds.
