Topics I've Started

Chopped Ford rod

05 June 2013 - 07:44 AM

This originally started life as a different project that I stalled on. A Revell 29 ford pickup rat rod kit, I started the basics and quickly lost interest. Then the other day as I was looking through my stash I found a few resin bodies, I pulled one out and cleaned it up, the next thing I knew I stole the parts I liked from that pickup project and a new project was born. Here is where I am so far.

29' ford chassis, Z'd rear with a parts box center rear axle center section and some aluminum rod and parts from the 29' kit. The front has the spring and axle from a Revell 40" ford kit mounted on the start of a suicide setup. I also cleand up the chassis and moved the transmission cross member I made forward (I had had the body and engine pretty far back on the pickup) I will have to extend that drive shaft a bit too.
