Velcome aboard, Casey! B)

I'd leave that body just the way it is and stuff all the go-fast stuff in it. In the first pic, the hood almost looks bare steel.

Well, I'm a liar.

I had the intention to take a break from the Matador and work on one of the Ramblers, but instead the big AMC ended up back on the bench for a few aero mods. First up was the chin spoiler... no idea what kit it is from, but it fit perfectly against the Matador's splash apron. I also added some spats to the wheel openings, they were made from .020" styrene, then trimmed and sanded to shape.

I'd love to see somebody do a Jeep CJ Zinger.
Too bad all Casey's Zinger parts are belong to me. :P :lol:
Guess I might have to do it, then. B)

This is kind of what I have in mind for the Rambler. The 2003 JoHan includes pointers and decals for converting it to an Ambassador, so I think that's the route I'll go on that one, with one extra step- I'll make it a hardtop as well.

Might as well go all the way and fix that funky kink in the roof, too. :D

I think that yellow chin spoiler is from the Revell '69 Yenko "Hot Rod" version.

Here we go again, I built set of pedals. Since there's manual transmission, I took two dashboards, and they both had only gas and brake pedal. I cut those pedal parts seperate, and built new rods from metal tube. I think, they look pretty good, and much better than those original parts. Next I'm moving on to dashboard, it still doesn't look right.
