We kind of last minute decided to go to NNL East again this year. And since we are going I wanted to have more than one build to bring with me. This year's theme is "hot rods from hell" and I thought I could start a fun curbside and get it done before then.
I am trying to use parts/kits that I otherwise might not use and found this kit in my stash missing some important parts. However all the body and interior pieces were there so it was a perfect candidate. Originally I was going for the pro-street look but using dually rear tires instead of slicks in the back. That idea never made it to far, maybe it was too close to the original Idea?
Then today I started tinkering and noticed the AMT snaptite blazer chassis just about fell in place (I only had to trim a bit at the front) after that things started moving forward and I was making progress!
Blazer chassis in, wheels and tires fitted, ride height set and the wheel openings massaged for those big tires. You may also note some plating / panels I started on too.
A diamond plated hood scoop seemed appropriate
That's all for now.. don't anticipate anything mind blowing here, just having fun with this one.
