I've been tinkering with this for awhile and thought I'd post a few progress pics.
It's a 1/8 scale resin Willys coupe that I'm turning into a trailered show car.

I kit bashed an 85 Vette for parts & pieces. The frame is extended three quarter of an inch and narrowed to fit.

Posted Image

Also filled the top of the frame with resin to help reinforce the cut and create an interior floor.
