2012 Corvette Hardtop.

12 September 2014 - 12:30 PM

this was the AMT kit, it came with a hardtop and convertible. I broke the back window so it glued it and painted it black to hide the glue marks, and liked the tinted look so i did the same on the front window. The headlights did not fit, so I left them off the car. other then some detail painting on the chassis, I didnt go to crazy with this kit as it was a curbside.

 

Paint is Model master, Dodge "GTS blue pearl", and model master black. I also decided to black out the side signal lights.

 

 The clear coat I grabbed from the body shop I work at, its Dupont "ready spray" I think its similiar the acrylic jamb clear that Doctor cranky uses.

Not a whole lot done so far, but a 50 hour week at work gets in the way!

DeChromed and painted the wheels. Still a bit too large for my taste....

I built this kit to try and push my skill limits, and see what I could come up with. its 99.99% done, I just need to pick up some aluminum tube for the tips, as the stuff I have left over is from Semi Pipes so its a llittle large! :lol:

 

 As usual when I post stuff on here, I'd like anyone who reads the post to do their best to pick out every little goof up or problem, as thats how I improve. Ill be the first one to point out my own mistakes as well!

 

The first thing I goofed is the side windows. even with the clear window glue, I still glue bombed them20140525_103924_zps80871137.jpg

im also not really happy with the hood. due to the slow drying of enamel some junk landed in it, and its not very smooth.20140527_105832_zpsf23b2497.jpg

 

the exhaust was warped and didnt match with the manifolds verywell, so I wrapped some BMF and wrinkled it to look like that heat shield tape.

wiring help for a 440MAGNUM

I saw these pictures of the magnum in the 68 challenger  while looking for reference material, and was wondering if anyone could confirm if this is correct or not, and possibly provide photos to prove/disprove. thanks.

decided I wanted to go with a mild street build approach for this one, thus the 440, and stock interior, etc. not a whole lot done so far, as the weather has only just started warming up.

 

also my first time BMF'ing the trim on a car. I got the wheel trim done after these photos were taken.
