1970 Mustang Boss 429

Recommended Posts

Fresh off the bench, other than a few small touch-ups to do that I found under the hood.  Painted in factory color Grabber Green from a Model Master rattle can, interior is Duplicor Super White.  The tire lettering is decals from Chief Joseph, which are excellent quality.  The chrome trim on the leading edge of the rear quarter windows are molded way too wide (IMO) so I filed them down for a better look, along with trimming up the glass accordingly.  I also trimmed off the mounting tabs and license plate bracket for the front bumper to allow for a better fitment.  Other than that, it's box stock with just added plug wires, BMF, and paint detailing.  Thanks for looking and any comments you might have.

Tony, simply outstanding my friend.  The cleanliness of your building is a goal to shoot for.  This is by no means a criticism, just an observation, did you consider using a black wash in the cowl vents at base of windshield?  Keep up the great work!

This is an OUTSTANDING example of a true Out Of The Box build, and it doesn't hurt that Grabber Green is one of my favorite colors! :wub:

VERY well done, and Model On!

Very nice! Question: Is that the stock battery tray area? Mine just seems to look different in my same kit? Plus I have to rebuild that area on my 69 Resin Coupe build so am curious. Anyhow, great job!

Yup the battery tray area is untouched, I left it as is.

Thanks again for the comments guys!
