​Alright guys, I understand most of you guys are like professional builders. I have seen your work, I am just building to my ability and I do encourage feedback. So here it goes. Here is a mock-up of my Lincoln LSC.

I think this kit has some great potential, just check out the body.

That being said, I couldn't leave this kit looking as-is so tell me what you think of my modifications.

I like the Falcon Chuck! Looks like the front frame rails fit pretty nice up to the inner fender structure too. Also,looks like you can use the Nova steering box and perhaps the drag link/tie rods?

 

I have the majority of my Duster prepped for primer. Hopefully, I'll get that done today or tomorrow. Then, I should be able to post up some decent progress photos. I've been jumping back and forth between the Duster and the '61 Comet and not making a whole lot of progress on either one seems like. I still haven't nailed down a set of wheels or color for sure yet.

The colors are going to be black/black on outside (No chrome) and black/yellow interior. Something like this.

Okay, I think I just bought the basis for this Community Build.... A '58 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery.

 

Previous owner has already started and converted AMT '66 Nova Pro Street chassis to fit under this body. It is little wider than the original, the front frame is stretched and rear too. It needs some putty, but otherwise it is going to stay like it is now. The engine will be 409 of course, with Cragar Blower.

Hi Al seems your as bad as me. No sooner I start a project Im either stripping one or starting another new project. Hope to get back to the coronet soon have been working on a transporter using the dodge little red express and the wedge transporter kit to haul around my mopars. Hoping to find a L700 dodge so I can hook it up to my amt/matchbox early car carrier also. By the way have twin 5 year olds, a 16 year old and wife, work for myself, find the time being a night owl generally dont get to bed till 3 or 4 am.  Cheers

I don't get a lot of bench time so progress is slow. Here is a little of the interior. Started a seat and painted the rollbar, and thats all folks. Thanks for looking.

Thanks!

 

I don't know where it is from, I found it from my parts boxes. But I'm guessing it's AMT Engine. :)  I've been in trouble with the spark plug wires. I hope to get them installed today.

...And We Have SparkPlug Wires!

 

I had bit trouble with the Wire Looms, this was the first time ever I tried them. They make wiring look much better, so I hope to use them more in the future. I decided to go with the Yellow wires this time.
