57 Corvette gasser glue bomb rebuild.

I'm rebuilding this glue bomb and I sprayed Boyd's True Blue Pearl over Black for the main body.  The interior, top and coves were sprayed with Boyd's Pacific Blue.  The top also has a coat of dull cote to tone it down.  Here are some pics of it as of today.  I had to repair the front end so that I could pose the wheels.  You can't turn them very much because of the headers though.  I will use BMF probably tomorrow night and our Nerd Night at the hobby shop.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan

I'll be looking for those next photos. I love gassers of any kind. I just saw a '57 gasser kit on evilbay today and thought about making an offer. From what I'm seeing so far with yours, I might just go ahead and make an offer.

Outstanding choice of colors! The 2 blues really work well together.

Thanks guys.  I enjoy rebuilding these glue bombs more than building new kits.  Dan

She's a gittin thar fur sure.  I used BMF and chrome pen for the trim.  I removed the headers and trimmed a tad bit off of the ends and shorten them up a bit.  I have re-installed them and will take pics soon.  I also had to trim off the pins for the interior so that the interior would let the body go forward a tad.  There was about a 1/16th gap between the body and flip front, so, somethin had to be done to close the gap.  It still not perfect but it will do.  I also moved the engine back a tad to help in this problem and now I have to trim the drive shaft to fit.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan

She's finished and now can be moved to the completed thread.  I used BMF and the chrome pen to do the trim and tail lights.  This was a good re-build and looks Ok to set on the shelf.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan
