The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
I hear ya, I'm originally from East Central Florida, but have lived in East TN the last 30 years. Dad's ole 58 was originally a 332 Interceptor Special 3 on the tree with a overdrive on the dash Dad wore the 332 out, and bought a wrecked 69 Fairlane Cobra, which donated it's heart to the 58. along with 4 spd. But yes I remember seeing a Conny kit on a few old cars but really pretty rare in the Tennessee area, I remember a few in Florida. I've always liked the look of them, so I guess that's just My fascination with the old Cruiser from back then. My dad was a Drag racing Guy so there was no room for the extra weight of stuff like A/C, Continental kits, or anything that didn't male it go Faster!! I'm slowing down in my older years and have this Love for the older Cruiser style.
Thanks David, I'm wanting to stay with something that you might run across going down the street, Rather than a "Show Car" I'm a little young to really remember seeing a lot of these style cars on the road as daily drivers.I just turned 51. I thought about Hockey Stick chrome, but I don't think it would go with the Lake Pipes. I did grow up riding in a 58 Custom 300, my dad had for years. It would out run, his new 70 Torino Cobra LOL!!
Thanks I'm working on it. Thanks for the tip on the Very boot , and the Dog legs, I've been thinking about how to build those too.. Of course I found a set of wheels I like on a 1:1, so I had to go looking thru my kits finally found a set.
Well I'm not to worried about the front of the rear fender well at this time, got my hands full, with trying to build the Continental kit right now. Thanks for all the tips and Pictures. I have lowered the tire to where I think it need to sit.and have started building the upper level parts that box in the inside of the bumper, and follow the contour of the rear bumper. Just a Couple of shots to keep everyone updated.
Of Course what I have in the Pictures is my starting point. I too, have been schooling myself, by studying pictures on the Net. LOL!! and by fitting My plastic to the Bumper. I was wanting to move the tire back away from the trunk lid a bit, also, and stand it up a bit more vertical. there will be a hole cut into the Base Plastic for the tire to set in, which will lower it to desired height. Now that I have looked at several real cars, I see how they're made, and will add two boxes to fill in around the top of the bumper, and flow with the contour of the rear bumper.
I would use a the New tooled (90's) issue 67 Mustang GT chassis or the AMt 67 Shelby GT 350 Chassis. they fit right up and under the 66 right nicely, and the Engine is really nice with great looking Top Loader 4spd Trans. Just a little work on the tunnel area and the 66 interior tub will set right in.
