I like where you're going with this build Jason. It looks great so far. One question fer ya, are you going to cut open a wheel well for the spare tire or just going to leave the trunk floor flat with no well? Just curious. :) Dan

thanks everyone for all the kind words! im really enjoying this kit.


dan, originally i was going to lay the spare down flat between the wheel tubs. but now i thhink i may have found a tire that fits the original location. if it does, i will open that back up.

mark, the green on the steelies is the color the car will be. the color itself is what inspired the build in the first place! lol ive had the kit for a while but never knew what to do with it. when i came across that green for some reason this kit and some wide whites were the first thing to pop in my head

thanks again and comments/ideas are always welcome!

Amazing work.

How did you widen the tub? I have not seen that done on here yet. I am new.

that's real progress! very nice... tip: the spare tire well is almost scale UNDER the car, but way too narrow inside the trunk... so: cut your intended spare tire down where it slips into the well and sits at a slight angle to the right. put a small square of styrene over the center to represent the jack base as used to hold the wheel firmly in place, with a slight depression in the center (maybe cut the center out of a spare air cleaner to get the wing nut detail...)

brian, the tub was cut on the floor board on each side then the sides were pulled out untill they were straight with the body. after that was fitted, some wedged shaped peices were made to close the gap. also, there is a post from 62rebel on page one that i followed to correct mine. need any help with it let me know ill do the best i can
