'86 Chevy Monte Carlo - hopper style

Recommended Posts

Just finished this Monte. I swapped out the rear axle for something with better detail, scratch built coils and hydraulic struts and made a 4-link suspension setup.

Rides on Pegasus wheels and painted with automotive paint and nail polish. Flocked carpet with matching headlining.

Funny how I carefully paint things that cannot be seen after final construction! The serpentine belt and pulleys came out really nice, but I didn't remember to photograph it. Here's the engine bay though.

I think they are ridiculous as vehicles but that is an outstanding model!  Great paint.

Very elaborate paint work. Watching your build and seeing the paint work evolve and then the finished work it was still hard to imagine just how it would look. In addition to the paint work the entire build is cleanly done thru out.

Excellent build Guy.

Rear suspension set up turned out great and looks the part.

Simple clean interior goes well with the paint.

Paint job is killa, lots of hours of taping and patience there.

 

Cant wait to see your next Lowrider build.

Excellent paint work! I can't imagine the amount of time (not to mention skill) it must have taken to accomplish that! :wub:

Thanks

Yeah, they're totally nuts, but I really admire the creativity, finish and mechanics of them. I've only seen them on YouTube and they make me chuckle when they bounce them, especially gas hopping and 3-wheeling. Crazy.
