Topics I've Started

Chevelle I built for the wife

23 May 2015 - 05:31 PM

My new wife was admiring some of my previous builds and I asked her if she'd like me to build a car for her. She went through my stash of kits and picked out a Chevelle. She chose the colors and I went from there. Had a problem with bleed through she took ownership before I could touch it up.:-)

71 Buick Wildcat

23 May 2015 - 05:02 PM

Buick Wildcat I did a while back, can't remember if I posted pictures of it. Was working on it about the time of my divorce. Trying to get back into the swing of things and back to my passion of building.

My clubs logo placed on the rear glass using clearcoat. Color is Alclad Candy Yellow over Model master Diamond Dust. Pegasus 20 inch wheels.

I've been looking at some of the various builds here by a number of you builders...beautiful stuff to say the least. When it comes to cars I feel like I'm on point in most cases but trucks I'm still a rookie to. One of the things I've noticed is a number of you all build up your chassis/frames with the suspensions and afterwards you paint them. Being an OTR driver I know truck frames and most components on them are painted the same color, what I'm curious about is how to guys get good coverag with your paint without being too heavy or light in some crevices and such, especially those using rattle cans.

A few pics of my current project. I decided to take a break from my contest builds and work on one of my trucks. I made some mistakes doing the stretch, but I'm happy with the results of my first try.

60 Impala

13 January 2015 - 06:40 PM

Came across a 60 Impala to had to my collection of Impala and let it sit in a box for a bit trying to decide what direction to go. I didn't want to do another low rider (not yet anyway :unsure: ) and didn't want stock so I decided to just go different. The only two things I wanted for sure was I wanted to use the Pegasus Sovereins and color change nail polish. Here's what I came up with.......
