The Idea behind this build was to create an 80's street machine. You know, that boastful, arrogant, tire squealing jerk who would cruise up and down your local main strip listening to AC/DC and twisted sister honking and yelling at all the young girls on the sidewalk. Yea that car!
A little background about the build. It started as an aerocoupe and after mucking up the paint on that body I decided to switch the body to flatback monte. It has fought me the whole way. First black paint job was sub-par so Into the brake fluid it went. Second attempt was black again with Tamiya black TS-14. After the mist coats were applied I sprayed the first heavy coat. Bam, Milky haze. No worries, some good advice from the good people at MCM and I was able to save it. Another heavy coat and everything came together.
This build has been a lot of first for me. Many parts were scratch build and I really have taken my time with it. I promised myself no new kits until I see this one through. I will not let a black paint job defeat me
On with the Pictures
Beginning stages of the scratch made cowl hood
Black paint job
Custom fuel tank, fuel filter
454, wired, custom headers, dipstick, ect. Interior primed
Rear view-exactly what I was going for with the gas tank.
I still have lots to do-Have a couple small paint flaws to work out, 3200-12000 and a good ole buff should take care of that. Interior will receive flocking, roll bar, and racing details.
Thanks for looking, comments always welcome!
