Some real nice things still going on in this thread!
This has been a long time coming but.. my first picture update.
Been a pretty long labor of time and sanding
This has been my first 'real' modified body. Been on and off working on it and trying new things.
I'm sure you guys can tell but this is the GT500KR kit.
The rear windows have been filled, will be covered by scoops I stole from a 67 GT350 I think.
The wide body is cut and hacked and filled.. donated from an S10 Xtreme kit.
Like I said, trying new things and letting it come together.
No real good ideas on colors yet.. thinking a baby blue with some flat side stripes of some kind.. still up in the air.
Great looking Tim build.
I know Dad has a couple of these at home somewhere.. likely unopened.
I have a special TR story. He was actually born/raised in my hometown. My pops actually worked for Al Richmond at his shop (Richmond Manufacturing). Dad has plenty of stories; too many to go into here lol.. and we have plenty of pictures. Agreed the story is a real shame because Tim was pure talent.
Again, great job on the build and keep up the good work!
I think I'll get in on this, just purchased a GT500 KR this past weekend.
Not my first model build but I did have a few questions. I've been lurking on the site for about a week or so and just wondered what you folks use for filler/body mods.. and what product is everyone calling the purple bath? Sorry for the noobish questions
Hope to add some pics later on as the build progresses.
