Topics I've Started

60 Impala

13 January 2015 - 06:40 PM

Came across a 60 Impala to had to my collection of Impala and let it sit in a box for a bit trying to decide what direction to go. I didn't want to do another low rider (not yet anyway :unsure: ) and didn't want stock so I decided to just go different. The only two things I wanted for sure was I wanted to use the Pegasus Sovereins and color change nail polish. Here's what I came up with.......

Old school Buick Electra Low Rider

09 January 2015 - 06:25 PM

Reached back to the late 70's early 80's low riders I remembered seeing when I growing up out in California. It's a glorified curbside/promo in that it has a motor. The interior and chassis are fairly simple, but with a little bit of dressing up it was rather fun build. The mural for some reason developed some wrinkles that would go away after a few treatments of Walthers setting solution. No biggie to me as I built it for the cabinet for myself.

Grand National Build

09 January 2015 - 06:17 PM

Just finished this one a couple months back. Tried some new techniques on painting to help give a better finish. Due to a few mods with hoses the air intake didn't QUITE fit right :unsure:. And the firing order was not wired correctly but I built it for me, not for show.

Chevelle Build

Here is a Chevelle I build for the girlfriend recently.

58 Impala Low Rider

09 January 2015 - 06:06 PM

Been away for a while due to some changes in life.....different job, relocation, divorce.....blah blah blah. Anyway after things finally calmed down I got back into building with encouragement from the girlfriend, my oldest son who likes to build with me, and good friends in the model club. This 58 is a build I started over a year ago and completed this past summer finally.
