I never seem to find pictures I need for a build. I'm currently trying to find pictures of a 1st generation Corvette with the doors open so I can see how the jambs are shaped. I'm not having much luck.
Where do you search when you're researching for a stock build?
I've had this 53 Corvette bag kit laying around for a couple of years and couldn't figure out what to do with it.
I bought a Nomad body at NNL East last week with plans of making a 58 Impala wagon. Unfortunately the body and parts for it didn't match, so I decided to cut it up and see if I can get it to fit the Vette. After cutting it off, I shortened and narrowed it, then attached it to the windshield frame.
Here's what I came up with after a few hours.
After a night in the Purple Pond, the roof and tailgate were ready to be mounted
Next up was to start making room for the rear wheels and tires. I cut the wheel house out and raised it along with widening it. I wonder why the stock kit has such a wide gap between the body and the wheel houses.
I still need to trim the outer edge as it's too wide and the interior tub is not centered.
There's a lot of talk of Malcolm Young suffering a recent stroke which has given him a blood clot in or near the brain. I've read quite a few stories about it in the last two days. Mostly the news doesn't sound good. The talk is the band might call it quits.
