Dodge Daytona IROC

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure that I've posted the beginnings of this build way back when but it's been so long I figured that I would start over.

I started this build over 7 years ago and like so many other projects it stalled out. Now, I've made a mid-year resolution to dedicate myself to completing some older, started builds. 

This is a 91 Dodge Daytona IROC build using a True Value promo (plastic) kitbashed with an AMT 90's era chassis/suspension and a whole bunch of scratchbuilding and added detail. I cleaned up the body and then made adjustments to the chassis to make it fit. I am hinging the hood and the rear hatch. When complete it will be a full detail build.

After just getting back to it I have finished the prep on the body and it now has color. I am also getting started on some of the small detail areas like creating better gauges for the dash.

More to come.

Looking real good.  I remember chasing all over trying to find True Value stores that had these.

I had a Chrysler Laser XT (a name plate Daytona) at the same time these were running. One of my favorite cars. I really should do the same thing.

Got started on the decals. Easiest decaling process I've done in a while.

Wow! Didn't know you could make those Daytonas look so good. Have a couple of these. Might have to tackle one some day myself. Great work. Can't wait to see it finished
