  1. I agree. It hasn't been worked with yet but I've gotten great results previously. Still have to apply a coat of transparent red yet and polish. I started this on a whim because I thought other people were over complicating it. It has turned out better than I thought.
  2. It's all about the drag parts. Fuel cell, nitrous, shifter and roll cage options are next. Aluminum panels to be fabbed. What surprised me is it was only about 4 hours to get to this point. Between the 2 kits you can build 2 very different cars. Promo style 66 Nova?
  3. Why remove the engine bay from the 1963 wagon kit? Looking at the inner shock towers there are locating holes to easily add the spring upper control arm detail. I've been on the fence about it but I am doing the Pro Street chassis swap. Gone well so far.
  4. After a few hours it has taken shape. Retained much of the interior. All 4 door panels intact. Modified front suspension to retain metal axle. Will allow springs and upper arms to attach to stock engine bay.

  6. Using a resin hood from Ebay seller I have good luck with. Paint is Krylon Shimmer Apple Red. High metallic finish with brilliant reflective finish.
  7. Saw on another thread some converting stock 66 pan. I want to do a fairly simple drag car with this kit. Now I've seen some things here I must address. 1. Why a 4 door wagon? Simple, except for rumored USAF vehicles it's the only factory offered wagon. Wagons have long history of weight transfer superiority. I have this in styrene in hand and like it a lot. 2. Do you have to cut the engine compartment away? According to the other thread yes but I don't think so. Has anyone noticed the holes in the inner fenders on stock 63? Looks like spring location holes like in the 66. Proportionally looks okay. You might choose to but I intend to use this body intact. Looking at the body I think springs and upper arms can be used with the stock chassis for added detail? We shall see on this thread. I'm keeping this simple because the chassis retains leaf springs. If it offered a 4 link and more sophisticated parts I'd likely gut the engine bay and add tubular a arms and coil overs. But this is intended to be a simple build of a street/bracket footbrake car. I hope you find it enjoyable.
  8. I have done this swap. I had to cut the Foose frame at the battery box . Keep the running board mounts to center and glue directly to the floor once you get the wheelbase right. Then add styrene and smooth. I also moved the 4 link inboard and narrowed the rear to add slicks for a drag look. It's a WIP but. I can say this. The Foose frame is able to fit many applications. It was a near perfect swap on my 50 F1
