36 ford coupe

Recommended Posts

Here is my version of the AMT 36 ford coupe. So far i have lowered as far as i can on the stock suspension and started to fix a few problems. One thing that was wrong was that the chopped roof section didn't fit very well so i split the lower body down the firewall and then the roof fit better also i found that the drivers door was 2mm longer than the passenger door! There are a few gaps to fill but really happy how it turned out. I plan on painting it in candy red and keeping pretty traditional.

Thanks for looking Lee

Looking good.

Nice to see somebody putting in the effort to correct some of the fit issues this kit has, instead of just scabbing it together or complaining but doing nothing about it.

Your modification of the firewall seems to have gone a long way to compensate for the chopped top. You may have to rework the interior a little also for clearance. From my limited experience with this basic kit I would suggest the Grill area will also be a challenge when you get there. I like the three Carb Flat head engine idea.

Thanks David i have not tried the interior yet. You're right about the grill i had to rework the top of the hood so it fits around the top of the grille and i noticed the small infill panel that sits on the side of the grille is too small so i am going sort that as well.Oh and the hood side panels are two different thicknesses!

Thanks Lee
