PRIMER ON EVERYTHING!!!

First I cut a piece of sheet plastic to fit the back of the Cockpit, and glued it in place.

Then, I sprayed some Dupli-Color Primer/Filler on the Transport...


Posted Image


Before spraying the Race Car, I cut the Front End off the Belly Pan and glued it to the body.

The Vette Attempt was sprayed next...

Ira, I can't tell you what a warm and fuzzy I get from this build. Of all things I appreciate originality the most, and this is certainly all kinds of original.


Thanks for the kind words Rob!

Glad you enjoy the originality, that my favorite part... :)

Really cool Ira. How about building in a tire rack into the body where the '59 doors are, on one side and perhaps a tool box on the other? Just for some functionality.

NOW!!! Those are Some FINS!!!

Always Loved the '59 Impala Fins, but they are a little too small for the Vette Transport.

So I used a Big Block Sander with some 80 Grit Sandpaper and flattend out the top of the El Camino Body.


Posted Image


Next I cut out some New Sheet Plastic Fins...8 Inches Long & an 8th Inch Wider than the Stock Fins!

I Sanded the Edges, Nice & Smooth, and then glued them in place...

Here is the Mock-Up with the Vette Attempt!

B) Thanks for Looking!

Man you have some really cool concepts. I wasn't sure I was going to like the vette front end on the hauler but I'll be ###### if you didn't make that flow with everything else and that vette hood scoop just looks tough. Can't wait to see it all finished, keep it up.
