BeakDoc Posted February 27, 2020 Share Posted February 27, 2020 Bagged this built but incomplete AMT kit on tha ‘bay for a nice price. It had nary a speck of paint on it and to my surprise it wasn’t a glue bomb. I had it apart in a matter of minutes and didn’t even crack the glass. As the stock wheels were missing, I stripped the chrome from a set of Aoshima wheels and painted them to match the body (I like the monochromatic look for whatever reason) and upgraded her to disc brakes on all four corners. I had to scratch build the convertible boot tonneau cover. I had to touch up the chrome on both bumpers with a combination of BMF and Molotow. The color is Tamiya AS-8 USN Navy blue with Tamiya pearl clear and 3 coats of Model Masters ultra gloss. The OB built it with the Cross Ram intake so I swapped that out for the intake/carb/air cleaner from a Lindberg Dodge 330 kit, then added some plumbing, wiring and brackets for the alternator, et al. Comments, questions, tips and pointers are always welcome and thank you for looking. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
