Pro-Touring 1962 Impala

18 February 2013 - 08:07 PM

Wow do I ever suffer from modellers A.D.D this month.I have a total of 4 build on my bench that all spend equal time being workrd on every day.

But this one is the newest.

Here is the inspiration behind the build.

It will look very similar to it but not exactly like it.

Mock-up.

I filled in some fender trim mounting holes.

I painted the rim center black.

The chassis is all painted.

I have ordered the conversion kit to turn it from a 378 into a 389.I will be replacing the Detroit with a Cummins.If anyone has any tips on doing this conversion I would greatly appreciate them.

Thanx for lookin'

Mid 80's Chevrolet Long-Box

A friend of mine asked me to build a replica of his friends truck for him.I was not expecting it to be a longbox though.The conversion was quite easy.But the paint on this truck will probably be the biggest task of all.Now on to the progress pics.
I started with this.

For the conversionI needed 2 beds.

First I cut the front of the white box out.

The I cut the taillight section off.

That was the chopping of the first box more to come soom.

1978 Dodge Lil Red Express

This is not going to be a purist type build.I tend to go with my mini-trucker mentality on most of my builds.So with that said here is a mini-truckers take on a Lil Red Express.

I went with a backhalf instead of a full frame.
