  1. Dick Trickle Montego GT WIP

    I just cut a long triangle strip of styrene and curve it to the shape of the wheel well I'm doing.Then glue it with the middle point of the triangle at the top of the wheel well. This gives the flare some slant to it. Then I rough up the area with 220 and putty with evercoat 2 part glazing putty. I never use any Tamiya or Squadron puttties. They always shrink.I bought this model used if you see the green putty on the deck lid it was removed and replaced with evercoat. Hope this helps. Tim

    Dave I can't take much credit for the cage most of it is a MPC NASCAR out of my parts bin. I just added a couple of bars here and there. Thanks for the compliments guys. Tim

    Good one!

    It would look more like my GTO under neath. H&M frt welded to stock rails with truck arms added in back. All this is speculation however because I've never seen pictures of the cars suspension. This was standard practice for GM and Ford cars from the era.

    No the chassis in my GTO was built by Nichels but was built with a Holman Moody frt clip welded to a GM frame with long truck arm rear suspension. The cage was kind of a cross between a Nichels design and a Holman Moody design. In those years the car had to run the same springs design as the factory car used. If it had coils in the frt and leafs in the rear that's how the race car had to be.

    Those both look to be Nichels built Chrysler chassis. The stripped down one looks newer.
