'69 Thunderbird

Recommended Posts

Got the basic engine assembled and plug wires done.  I know it really should have an automatic tranny but this was supposed to be a relatively quick build .

Also been working on the chassis.  

I cut the tie rod assembly away from the suspension arm piece, added small arms to the king pins and attached it all together so it would be poseable.

Flipped the king pins over while I was at it to lower the front. Cut a couple coils off the back springs to lower the back. 

The bottom of the floor was just flat in these kits so I added dome shapes cut from thin sheet stock and molded them in a bit with red putty before painting. No where near "replica stock" but unless you have intimate knowledge of the floor pans of a late '60s Thunderbird I doubt you'd know the difference. LOL
