    Thanks David for your comment. Hope to have a bit more done this weekend. Have nearly sorted out the the floor pan details just a little more paint detailing and have to finish off the exhaust. With the exhaust used a combo of the dodge superbee pro street exhaust up to and including the mufflers, from the mufflers to the exhaust tip are revell pro street willys and removed the original exhaust tips from the kit which I am using to finish off the exhaust. Anybody that has this kit and hasn't had a good look at it will find the kit is supplied with 440 exhaust manifolds and not hemi ones. Also scratch built coil overs for the rear end but unfortunately no matter what I tried there isnt enough room to get them in so will have to detail the pro street superbee's ones. Cheers and thanks for looking

    Thanks for the comments everyone. John not the power thats the problem its getting it down to the ground. Used the 392 as I needed something a little different under the hood from the usual 426 as I already have 64 dodge pro stock and a pro street both with 426 hemi's

    Thanks everyone for your comments. John started the plug wiring and dissy last night so hope to have a few pics of the engine in the next day or two but have posted one before I started the wiring. Have now got the clear coat on the body and gave it a good buff up, painted the black outs on the doors as the street machine kit didn't come with them and finish of the bmf on the door handles and locks then another couple of clear coats to seal everything in. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    64 dodge 330 gasser
    Hi this one is being built more as a street gasser than full on drag build. Started with the lindberg ramchargers kit and added a gasser front end to it along with a 392 hemi from one of the willys gasser kits with parts box headers that I heated and bent with scratch built collectors. The blower belt came from the parts box as well as the rims and tyres. Have modified the interior with a scratch built dash fascia, roll cage, shifter mount and using revell 66 charger buckets. With a bit of luck wont be too far from finishing, cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    amt 1971 Dodge Charger update 5/18/2017
    Hi been working on this one when I have been waiting on things to come together on the Dodge truck I have on the go. Wasn't really happy with this kit as it didn't allow me to build the stock version only the street machine version so out came a 70 superbee pro stock floor pan. Kept the kits front chassis and modified it to fit the superbee floor pan so I could keep the engine bay looking original. Then had to shorten the rear of the chassis to fit. Plan for this build is a pro street that the whole family can enjoy, that's why I have gone for a total stock interior. Had to modify the rear section of the door trims and also the rear seat to get everything to fit nicely over the tubs, only down fall was the original floor pan had all the interior detail whereas the superbee has a separate interior floor pan which I couldn't use. Gave the body work a clean up and glued the rear apron on and used super glue to fill in the gaps and filed it down for a smooth finish. Now had to modify and trim off the original mounting of the rear bumper so now it slides in from the outside. Gave it a coat of duplicolor primer, sanded the whole thing down then gave it a few coats of duplicolor parchment rattle can. Painted the scoop, front and rear air dam in semi gloss black and thought it still looked a little plain. Found a decal from the amt 71 duster in the decal box and added it to the bonnet for that different look. Painted the interior in some plain brand rattle can paint that I got from the cheap shop and am actually surprised how well it went on and looks. The lid was of a light shade of red but came out a much deeper red thankfully. Made a start on the engine but now have to find a set of headers as the kits supplied exhaust manifolds are for a 440 not a hemi which also came with the kit. Will post updates as I go along. Cheers and thanks for looking

    Thanks everyone for your comments and your tips. Steve noticed the wheel placement after everything was together and with the time restriction of 4 weeks to do the build, I didn't want to start pulling things apart, as I just met the dead line as it was. Thanks for the tip on the plug wiring Walter will keep that for future reference, will have to get the manifolds closer to the block in future. Cheers Steve

    1970 Dodge Super bee
    Hi built this one as a motm on another forum and thought I would post the finished build here. Built almost box stock just added a few details such as plug wires and the chrome trim on the front apron. Painted in duplicolor jasmine yellow which is almost a perfect match for the original banana color. Interior painted in a mix of flat, semi-gloss and gloss black and bmf. Cheers and thanks for looking

    Hi thanks everyone for your comments. Have been working on a chassis that I found in the parts box and think it will work with the build to give it that fabricated look. Still have a bit more modificatins to do to it and then will be making up a flat floor pan to suit. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    Hi a small update of what I have been working on for the past couple of nights. Removed the rear seat and had to make up a frame to hold some flat sheet styrene so I could place rear buckets in its place. Had to brace the rear parcel shelf as it was flopping about without the seat. Will be extending the centre console to the rear of the buckets with another spare tub that I have. Thinking of doing the interior in bright red to contrast with the gold. Cheers and thanks for looking, Steve

    Hi thanks Jim for your comment. Al had to do something different with the stripe, wanted that unique look from all the other superbee's I've seen and didn't know if I was able to pull it off until I got the decals on the body and am happy the way it turned out. With the 65  from memory is the polar lights pre painted kit, that was painted a pale yellow, that I stripped the paint off and also opened the trunk. Am using the pro street superbee chassis under it and hope to be working on it after I get the superbee's finished off as everything is in mock up at the moment. Posted a couple of pics for you. Cheers Steve

    Thanks Al not sure where the stripe came from but it was just a plain stripe except a cut out for the turn signals, which I removed on this build thats where the idea of the superbee graphic came into play. The 65 is sitting in a box at the moment waiting for me to get back to it which is now painted black and using the superbee pro street chassis. Cheers Steve
