  1. 1957 Chevy convertible

    That's wicked nice!
  2. '65 Lincoln Continental

    I had this one in my stash for about 15 years. I lowered it and used white walls out of my parts box. I couldn't get the hood to shut with the engine in, so I took out the engine and glued the hood shut.
  3. '65 Lincoln Continental

    Thanks, it's the AMT '65 Lincoln Continental 3 in 1 kit.

    Thanks, I was going to paint it black, but I changed my mind at the last minute.
  5. Base Box Caprice Conversions

    Those look great!
  6. '47 Chevy Fleetmaster

    I just finished up this Galaxy '47 Fleetmaster. I used the lowered suspension and the custom engine parts. The paint is Rustoleum Harbor blue with a flat clear coat.
  7. '47 Chevy Fleetmaster

    Thanks. A good friend of mine built 1 of the 3 pre-production kits, I had to get his advice on getting the hood and fenders lined up.
  8. '47 Chevy Fleetmaster

    Thanks. I really like rustoleum paint, it lays down smooth. Some people don't like it, but it works well for me.

  12. Pacer Wagon - Camp Racemore

    That's wicked cool!
  13. I had an idea for a 55 Chevy truck build and after checking my stash, I realized I had almost everything I would need, so I went ahead and got started. I started by cutting out the inner fenders for wheel clearance, I want this one to lay rocker. I then added new inner fenders made out of sheet plastic. With the wheel/tire combo I'm using ill need as much clearance as I can get. I had an extra set of rear fenders, so I glued each set together to get some extra width. Then I cut out one side of each so i could have extra wide fenders. More next time.
  14. Thanks for the comments guys. I'm finally settled in enough that I could get a little more done on this build. I started the body work on the cab. I made a template on my mat so I'll know where the wheels go so I won't have to measure every time. I think I'm going to use the kit frame rails as a starting point, this kit will lay rocker with the kit frame rails. I noticed that the fenders curved downward on the inside so I did some cutting and added some flat pieces for tire clearance. More next time.
