  I pulled this from my stash a month or so ago and started cutting it up .  I chopped the roof ,  slid it forward 1/4 inch ,  and changed the angle of the tailgate .  Then I cut the grooves in the roof to mimic the original Nomads .  Next I tucked that big ol' bumper in close to the body ,  opened the grille ,  and added headlights from the Revell 2009 Challenger .  Side mirrors were taken from the Revell '86 Monte Carlo .

  After all that was done I lost interest and sat it aside for a few weeks .  I was ready to pack it up when I decided to finish it and get it over with ,  so I glued the hood shut and made it a curbside !   The paint is Duplicolor Chili Pepper Red over base coats of flat black and bright silver ,  then cleared with Rustoleum Automotive Enamel .  The wheels and tires are Pegasus .

 

I can only post photos in a " reply " so they will be posted next .

 

Thanks and I hope you like it !

Thanks again !   This is my very first curbside build .  Felt kinda weird not detailing the engine and chassis .
