  1. Kit's tail lights are way too big and not embedded as they should. I found smaller tail lights in L-700 box trailer. A100 tail lights holes have be drilled bigger but not nice job to painted body. Drilling broke the paint and it had to be painted again. Re-painting done and tail light inserted.

    Excellent build.
  3. AMT Monte Carlo '70 conversion to '71

    I missed the auction but the bumper is interesting. Is it from a kit or diy made? Here is a screenshot of the bumper. I rotated the picture for clarity.
  4. AMT Monte Carlo '70 conversion to '71

    Thanks. I may try to convert '70 front bumper.
  5. AMT has Monte Carlo SS 454 '70 kit but I'd like to built '71. What are differences between '70 and '71? Are there conversion resin parts to do '71?
  6. Hoses and most interior parts are installed. Next job is dashboard. The dashboard will be glued to the hinge retainers and the body. Actually A100 does not have any hinge retainers at all. They could be tossed away but the hinges should be re-made. I'm not going to do it this time because it is too time consuming.
  7. I started A100 last spring with my eager helper who finds all fallen parts and they can be found in her mouth if you are fast. This is an interesting kit because it is very simple but the body is quite good. Body is missing some details and they has been mostly corrected. Painted body. Colors are Turf Green and Dodge Truck White. Engine, brake and gas pedal are installed. Bed flooring is 0,6 mm lacquered birch veneer. Interior parts: dual gate console shifter, widened doghouse with opening cover for 426 Wedge, better tach and stolen police shot gun. Chassis: steering and brake linkages , better Chrysler 8 3/4" rear end, front and rear shocks, front disks and brake booster. Front shocks were tight to install because inner fenders should be more inwards. Polished body and parts. Next brake and fuel lines and coolant hoses.
  8. Flintstone '29 Ford Tudor

    Thanks. I think I need both AMT and Revell kits. I have read Revell kit has much better front suspension parts.
  9. I need a good donor kit for Flintstone NB137 1 '29 Ford Tudor. Revell and AMT has '29 Ford kits. Which is the best of them? Revell '29 rat rod? Critical parts are chassis, front suspension (stock) and other front parts. Engine, transmission and rear axle comes from other kit.
  10. Pro Street Matador

    I really appreciate your kind words. Engine block is modified from Revell '57 Chevy Pro Sportsman and valve covers modified 58 Christine Plymouth, pulleys are from AMT '70 Super Bee and timing cover&waterpump from Jo-Han Pro Street Rambler. Monogram Heavy Chevy Chevelle gives blower. Engine color is Motip 953664. Header are from the Parts Box.

    This is finally completed after 8 years. I'm happy I changed 528 Hemi to AMC 443 (stroker 401).

    Really nice project. It is a Randall Pacer in steroids.

    Just a gorgeous build! AMC Rocks!
