Started building this in 2012 , I've had lots of set backs on it .I think it was painted three times , the hood cracked a couple times trying to polish the paint out. I molded the hood in to make it stronger. Hope this fixes the problems with the hood . Going with a tilt front end. I'm only working on started projects, this one is next . It's getting finished even if it's an barn find custom.

Always like to see Monkee Mobile conversions! I think this kit has a lot of potential for wild custom projects. Built mine as a hardtop coupe a couple of years ago but I really like the station wagon idea! Nice wheel choice, too! Hope to see it finished soon!

I like the wagon conversion idea. What did you use for the basic roof shape ??

Thanks. I have a built Monkeey kit I got as a door prize years ago. While it was built to a high standard I think I would like to do something different with it. Your wagon idea looks appealing so I'll be watching your build.

With the nose being so long on the front of this , made it difficult to build a hinge . But I think I  figured it out.
