This will be an exercise in styrene imagineering. While waiting for some pieces to finish the Surf Rod I mocked this up and decided it would be pretty cool. The first thing I did was to flip the gas tank, I add a filler still. Instead of flipping the bags and shock mounts. I cut the center section free and flipped it, leaving the mounts intact and a stronger mount. The front axle is from a 33 Willy's kit, flipped of course. The body is a Revell 5-window chopped 3 1/2" (scale). I also cut up the Wild Bill's decal to fit much better. The engine is only for mock up. Thanks for the interest...

Thanks for the comments guys. 

Joshua, those are in the new Revell R@t Roadster kit. Very nicely done and many other cool parts as well.

Here is where I made the cuts. The tank glued right back in place with little sanding and I change the engine mount angle to gain clearance.

I also left the floor pan in place but now it is more of a belly pan. Thanks for looking and commenting!

And this is the what I'm working on. Trying to put the Catalina interior in the 32 is alot like trying to put 10 lbs. of sugar in a 5 lbs. bag.

That's a great use of the Pontiac interior. I might have to try that sometime.

James,  you are a lunatic (read: creative genius).  I'm not sure I'd want to drive it but it's looking very cool.

Your use of the modern Pontiac interior gives me an idea to solve a dilemma with a '39 Chevy I'm building.

Looking forward to more!

I really like the direction of this build. I would have never thought of flipping the frame over to get that kind of stance. Great job and keep the progress coming.
