My first build of the year is done! A series of paint mishaps led to multiple repaints and even a body replacement on this Impala. If you can name a paint problem (crazing plastic, sputtering rattlecan, overzealous polishing), it happened on this build. Each time I had to restart the painting process, I set the project aside to recharge my patience and focused on other pastimes, including (but not limited to): Fixed the turntable and recorded some old vinyl into digital form Got the family's four bikes ready to ride Watched the latest season of Luther Read Stephen King's The Stand When my enthusiasm for the project recharged, I got over the painting hump and had fun getting the car finished. Now that it's done, it's time to post some pics. I'm glad I chose this color, Evening Orchid. The female figure came from a Mazda Cosmo that's been on my build list since I saw a 1/1 at the Peterson Automotive Museum in LA. The figure looks kind of bland at the moment, but she's an early attempt at a non-automotive subject. This engine photo shows flaws harder to see in person, but I like how the BMF gives the chrome valve covers and air cleaner a "light daily driver" look.
Created a Maryland State Police impala. Fictional Model based on one that would have been seized from a drug trafficker. Built mostly stock except a few dress up items on the motor. Scratch built the radar antennas on the front and rear deck. Scratch built the front dash rotater style light with the flash shield behind it. since this is a car that would have been used in the 90s it would not have any of the current LED style emergency lighting. Im still debating on adding a light bar or not.
Here it is - my 1996 1994 ( ) Impala SS. I like this fullsize, always remember to copcars, when i see one. I built it stock and made only some wiring. I know, that the Chromtrim on the sidepanel is not chromed original. But, why dont show, what kind of engine is working under the hood? Enjoy:
