Is that body really 50s old? Like a Johan kit. Never the less that's bad to the bone. I like it.

Yeah it's really that old, from an original AMT kit I had as a kid. The body was left over from the double "T" kit. I always thought the original kit came with three bodys including the tall "T". I don't know for sure but, I always had this extra body.

That's pretty cool looking Ron! Especially for a first time weathing job! Cool idea of using a gluebomb body to begin with. I may have to try something similar to that sometime. How didi you do your angled plug boots? I've done them before,but they don't look as clean and neat as yours do. Well done!

The angled plug boots are an illusion, the wires are just superglued to the sparkplugs then touched up with Testors rubber paint. The nailhead engine had nice sparkplugs and I just couldn't cut them off and drill holes! :lol: I forgot the radiator hoses so I added them today and the picture. Thanks also to Jeff, Carl and Chris.Posted Image Posted Image

This thing is really cool! I love all the little touches like the skull, mooneyes, logos on the doors and the weathering looks great. Those tail lights are cool as hell too, what are they off of? I want to say something like a ranchero but I think I'm way off. anyways, nice build.

Thanks, Jason. The lights came from an old Monogram '34 Ford. The reason they are so high is because I mounted them on the shock perches on the '40 ford axel. I could imagine them shining on the tires as it is going down the road and turning with the wheels going around the corners. :lol: OK, I re-read your question I thought you said tall lights. The TAILIGHTS are from a source unknown to me. A friend last night at my club told me they were VW front fender turn signals. I think he is wrong but, I don't know the source.
