W-348 & W-409 Building '64 Super Stockers!
Posted 16 November 2013 - 08:54 AM
Its been a while since the last update of the Dodge, but now I try to find the time to finnish it.
First, thanks for all of the supportive comments guys!
Here is some pics of the current situation: The engine is assembled, I installet the ignition wires and fuel lines, interior is also ready.
The body has primer it and I think I'll paint it white tomorrow with Tamiya spray paint.
By the way, Niko's Thunderbolt has stalled because the lack of the interior paint...

Nice work. Glad to see this is back up and running. If I ever finish my Pro Mod Merc, My next project is a '64 Fairlane GT for the Super Stock GT class (any engine any year from the same company). Maybe I'll ship it to Finland and we can have a match race.
Tell Miko I'm building a 1:1 Super Stocker. A '68 Mustang coupe with a 5.0L.

EXCELLENT JOB!! THANKS FOR POSTING!!
Tip from an old mechanic: Never run rubber fuel lines, if they were to burst you might become a torch.

Back again, I got my Dodge finished after all.
Dale, you are more than welcome to Finland with both of the Fords next summer (now we are having -17 Celsius degrees).
John, yes you definitely right about the fuel lines. We are also using braided in our 1:1 Stock Eliminator Chevelle, but I think they used to use rubber lines in the early days.
The body is painted Tamiya TS spray paints and clear coated. I tried polishing the paint for the first time ever, and it wasnt so difficult. The result looked much better than without polishing. Next time I'll be more experienced.
There were some fit issues in the model (for example with the front bumper), but mainly ok.
Here are so some pics of the finished model:

Looks awesome Mika! I built that car with my father years ago and it turned out awful lol. I got another one in the stash though, hopefully it comes out as nice as yours!
