jjsipes Posted July 28, 2022 Share Posted July 28, 2022 I have been wanting to build one of these for a long time. Finally bit the bullet and got started. I started with the Revell 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona kit. Had some pieces from the 1st release of this kit with some of the "Race Car" option like the taillight panel cover, the center rollbar that goes behind the seat (in which I modified slightly) and few other pieces. I started with the interior and seeing what I could come up with. I glued the interior pan at the rear seat area, the toe boards and along the driveshaft tunnel leaving the rest loose. I then cut the floor pans out of the interior pan to use the top of the chassis pan itself. Smoothed up the low areas of the front subframe and along the rockers. Created the door jambs (which are not perfect but will work). Smoothed up the interior trim panels and cut the door trim panel out. I cut the rear package tray down and cut some sheet plastic to mold that into the rear seat area and smoothed trim panels. Started looking at the rollcage which is always my downfall on creating a stock car out of a streetcar kit. I guess it isn't turning out to bad. I have cut out the inner front fender aprons. I have a set of PPP early 1970's stock car tires and wheels to use. I always found a correct resin hemi intake to use as well. I have 3 different sets of decals for one of these cars, not sure which one I will build. I have the decals for the #99 Glotzbach, the #22 Allison and of course the #71 Isaac car.
