66 Chevy ll outlaw style..(update 12/23/16)..

Recommended Posts

What's up fellas... I started a new build a few weeks ago.. I'm having a brain fart choosing a color for the LX Mustang build so I started on this one in the mean time,,, this is an older build I did some years ago. It was painted black so I stripped the paint and started building...

 

the first order of business was to stretch the rear fender wells to accommodate the big slicks..I added a piece of .020 flat styrene to fill in the gap..

I got the cage done, and opened and hinged the doors, made  rear wing from styrene...

Next I made some wheelie bars, and used photo etched brackets for the wheels.. I also rounded off the rear slicks to look more like the real slicks, and hit them with some dullcote..

Next I got the chassis painted and applied some carbon fiber decals to the wheel tubbs..

Then I made up a set of fender exit headers and added some resin welds and sprayed on different shades of metalizer paints... I also got some clear coat on the chassis...

Again, you make it look so easy! I always enjoy looking at your builds, the details and scratchbuilding are so impressive!

Not sure what your color scheme is for this one, but after seeing the body in white primer, maybe a white body with some color graphics would look nice?

 

Waiting to see this one done.

Tyrone... It's great to see you back at the bench with this build. It is coming along nicely so far. Love the way you opened up the rear wheel well. It looks way better that way.

Thanks fellas for the kind words I really appreciate it... I modified the intake that comes with the pro sportsman engine and I carefully split a set of demon resin carbs.. I also added some rivet detail to the rear tubbs..
