1976 Montego Project

Recommended Posts

With a great deal of help from Tim and his vast knowledge of this Montego's. I'm trying create a 76 NASCAR body. I started with the Revell 1975 Torino. Here we go! This what we have so far.

It is looking great!!!!

 One of the issues this Torino has is the trim on top the door. It is too thick and raises the door and line making the openings to small, especially the 1/4 glass , Revell added the height of the entire piece to the top of the door and 1/4 glass whereas the trim is almost flat on top the door and rolls over the side.

Even it out to open up the window the way it should be.

Major kit flaw that drives me insane!!!

i marked up one of your pics for reference.
