Ok I just wanted to see how this would go, One day at band camp, I had this idea come to me for an Out of The Box build. Now I know that will be a challenge to most of us, cause I cant help but actually paint it some other color or get some factory correct.

Here's the specifics
Any Car: except Snaps
Has to follow build instructions to the T
Open End because I know we all have projects going and life happens.
Also because anyone can join if they just need to do a basic build to get back into the swing of things.

Yes you can get rid of mold lines and hide glue marks.

Other than that Have Fun.

Ah, well good cause I probably couldn't do it because something would have to be changed.

I'm interested as I have a box stock kit planned, but it will be a while before I start it. Since this is an open-ended CBP, it doesn't matter how many people join now. Josh, if you're building one box stock now, I say do it here for your CBP and people might join when they see your dedication.

Box stock is incredibly hard for me. If it's just the wheels, something is gonna get changed. But that in itself makes it a challenge.

Sure, The reason for no snaps is to make it pretty even across the board. Mainly because most snaps are "pre painted" in the molded color. No engine so there is no difficulty in really getting it Box Stock. I don't mind started kits or even with them in other CBP's. I have a vette I will be doing box stock, If I get it done in time it will be going to a show in April.

I'm going to hold off a bit, these last few builds started to get out of hand. I have a couple that I would like to get done for a car show in April.
