    You could try using masking tape over the badges while sanding to avoid them getting sanded

    Thanks Dann for your comment. Got some paint on the floor pan and have mocked up the engine in the engine bay which I had to cut a hole in the hood to peek out. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    Have been working the rear end the past couple of nights. Thought I would have the rear done an half an hour but because the chevelle kit that I am using was started by someone else the bracing and wheelie bars were either bent, twisted or broken so had to scratch up my own parts or straighten what was salvageable. All the white parts of the rear end are styrene and although not a big fan of wheelie bars on a street car decided to keep them for a different look. Also got a light coat of color on the inner guards and firewall just to see how the color would look and am happy with it and thinking of doing the roof in white and possibly a beige interior. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    Had the same type of problem once before and I covered a set of tail lights with bare metal foil then removed it after the paint work and I have also used blu tac the stuff you stick posters on the wall for masking as well with great success. Hope this may help you

    Will be working on this one over winter and hopefully will have it finished by the end of the year. Started off by adding tubs to the rear end to suit the rims and slicks I got from the parts box. While I was at it I also came across the wheelie bar set up that I will be using and also decided on a supercharged injected twin plug hemi for motivation. Started on the roll cage using the original center loop and scratched up the rest with still more to go. Also finished the firewall recess to be able to fit the hemi in. Will post progress while I go along. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    Have been working on this over the past couple of nights and now have modified the firewall for a cleaner appearance and will also be smoothing of the inner guards. Found the interior tub for the chevell in one of the parts box that was more detailed rear firewall and cut it out to replace the dodges one and then re installed the dodges rear parcel shelve. Going to use a set of buckets from the dodge superbee pro street kit and the roll cage started as the dodges original one that I modified with some extra bracing. Also primed the plenum chamber and removed the chrome from the horns and drilled them out. Still have yet to modify the manifold and will be scratching my own valve covers as I dont have any suitable aftermarkets ones for this build. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    Thanks everyone for your comments. Playing around last night was thinking of possibly injecting the motor so after looking through my induction parts box found the induction from one of the chev kits that I parted out. After dropping it on the 440 found the plenum chamber just looked to skinny and small so decided to scratch up my own. Not a 100% if I like it or not will decide after I clean it up and prime it. Will also have to modify the manifold to suit the 440 as well but in using this set up will have to scratch up a cowl induction scoop. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    64 dodge 330 update 06/26/17
    Started this one about 10 years ago in the days that I didn't use primer and the paint work turned out okay but chipped real easy so decided to strip it and start over. Have a couple of pro street rear floor pans that I am checking at the moment and may use the chevelle rear end but will cut the axles from the diff and install a dana center. Using rims from the parts box and the fronts are from the ford woody street rod and the rears from the willys pro street kit. Going to use the 440 out of the revell limited edition dart kit and will be using a big single 4 barrel for the induction. Havent worked out interior details yet but thinking of more modern buckets for the front and either 3 buckets in the back or leaving the rear seat out altogether. Not sure on color yet but thinking of adding some styrene to the rear pillars so I can have the roof a different color from body. Have posted a couple of mock up pics and will be a build that I will be progressing with over the winter. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    Have the engine in mock up at the moment and hope to have it finished this weekend. Have painted the block in model master hemi orange, stripped the manifold,supercharger and valve covers of their chrome and painted the covers and manifold in krylon metallic aluminum and the supercharger, injection in magnesium. Made up my own magneto and added the plug wires, still have the fuel system,hoses and blower belt to finish off. Am going to try something different with the belt as I pulled apart an old printer the other day and the belt is a perfect match just have to cut it to length and glue it together. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve
