Here's a quick run down on the GTX starting with a custom frame incorporating the Viper's front and rear end. The tires are from the Viper and the rims are from a 09 Challenger SE by Revell.
Did a far amount of modding to the body removing all emblems, window posts, trim along the wheel wells (to open them up a little), and the trim alone the bottom of the body. It can't be seen from the picture but I also recessed the gas cap so it's flush with the body. This idea was barrowed from the Daytona in Fast and Furious 6. The most notable change is in the grill, I shaved out the insides and replaced it with some wire mesh.
I'm also changing the back end a bit. I'm going to body most of it in getting rid of the chrome, I think I'll leave the bumper chrome though. I'm also bringing the tail lights all the way across and relocating the back up lights into the bumper or something. I may put them in the center of the tail lights like a Challenger too, haven't decided yet.
The body of a GTX has got a little bow to it, the roof however is flat so it doesn't really follow the body line it goes up hill a little towards the front. I always thought it looked a little off so I thought I'd change that on mine and lower the front just a little, not to give it an angry squinted look or anything, just lower it enough to keep it consistent with the body.
Now it should be noted that this is the first time I've ever tried lowering a roof and my inexperience showed. Using a lighter to warn the posts to bend them a little the plastic got to hot to quickly and curled all around. With one ruined I just cut the other side off and proceeded to make my own posts, hopefully I can make them look good, if not I'll have to locate another body. I wont be doing that again, at least not the way I did it.
Anyway that's the past month in a nut shell for the GTX, the hot rod hasn't changed any, doing some planning right now mostly on colors.
Opinions, idea's, criticism it's all welcome.
Keep up the great work you guys!
