Stan....All good advise here. I have been there many times myself...still have those days when nothing seems to go right. Best advise anyone ever gave me on building is.... Treat every part as if it were a model itself. Build for you or what makes you happy with them. Building is no race...build at your own speed and the results will show it...after time they will all start to look much better as each one you build you learn from. If you love it never give up...me if I am having a bad building day I just take a break for awhile on them. Me I have been looking for old parts to my dads old ones that need restored for MANY years now and will never give up on them.
Troy... Id like to see it too..its a future project I have to try out. The one we owned had the same nose as the 70 GTOs did...455ci,auto car with rally wheels. The only one I have done at this point is our old 69 Plymouth wagon....still waiting to find the needed parts or donors for the others.
Rick...Nice work! I have converted 2doors into 4doors and wagons for awhile...I love having something different plus I am kind of a wagon nut anyway. I have some planed for the future like ones my family had owned over the years once I find the parts to.... 64,69,70 Bonneville Safari wagons 68 Fury wagon 69 Impala wagon 61 Ford Country Squire wagon 60 Desoto wagon 70 Pontiac LeMans wagon 68 Chevy Chevelle wagon and a couple of others. I once owned a 70 Impala 4door HT...that was a nice car.
Jim..its made of tin its one of those kits you see selling off the side of a road. It has to be ether cheap/old paint it had been scuffed up before painting was done. Wonder if a soybean oil base enamel will work..? I hit it with some enamel spray paint as a test it seems to hold ok..even on one area where it got missed being prepped.
