This is what is going to be a street/strip car. Something that someone would drive stoplight to stoplight. Nothing fancy. Keeping it able to modify on the weekends to hide what might have happened that the cops are looking for from the weekend ;)Posted Image

the car with hood scoops sanded off and gaps filled along with the side emblems shaved off and the motor.

Posted Image

the other side badge shaved

Posted Image

back side of the motor

Posted Image

the seats with mold lines and excess sanded and shaved off along with the other pieces.

what will be the grill...

Thank you for looking. more pictures to come soon. :D

I am using the AMT 1967 mercury comet kit even though it was made as a cyclone gt in the kit. i.e. the badges and decals are set up for a cyclone GT. I am using slixx decals for a 64 comet. and the motor came from this kit minus the intake manifold and above and the pulleys which came from the 68 firebird 2'n1 kit. I drilled a hole in the front of the motor to fit the distributor.

I like this one, fo' sho'. Is that shifter linkage from the Comet kit? It looks pretty slick.

Great concept! After seeing the work you've done on the kit-supplied grille, I'm assuming someone makes a P/E insert. That ought to look sharp when complete.

It appears AMT used the same underhood "sheetmetal" on this as they used for the Fairlane, since the shock towers don't have any top assemblies. If that's going to be a concern for you, this may be of some help http://www.modelcars...showtopic=58515.

I'm looking forward to seeing how that Tamiya paint turns out. Sounds like a great color combination.

gaps filled and sanded ready for the placing of the decal, only its not gonna sit on top there. I'm gonna carve into the dash inlay and set it in the back and then 5 minute over it so it'll dry clear like a glass over it.
