What?!?! A Box Stock Build?

Recommended Posts

Just started my next project... a box stock Monogram 59 Vette. I don't think I've built box stock in 15 yrs, but I thought I'd give it a try. Hopefully, this will be next years GSL entry for me (depends on how well I hide my goofs!). This kit has great torque thrust mags and lowering options, so it meets my minimum standard. Along with the opening trunk, seperate side coves and multi piece frame, this is, in my opinion, an excellent candidate for a box stock build.

3 weeks in and all I've accomplished is body paint! (Do you know how hard it is to paint black?!?!) The coves are Wimbledon White, as will be the interior (probably)

Ohhhh that will be a beauty! Excellent choice for a box stock build. Great subject and a wonderful kit.

And yes, black IS a pain.

Looking GREAT so far!

Thanks,

Box stock but not quite factory stock. Tuxedo Black was available only with Silver coves. Sorry to nitpick.

Take your time and this kit will build up into a beautiful model.

i don't think he is going factory if he plans to use the lowered supensions with the mags.

btw, great Galaxy in your gallery. I always go for mags over hucaps.

To nitpick even further... Wimbledon White is a Ford color! As Early iron stated, Mag wheels and lowered... not stock, but definitely the way I like 'em!

Keep goin at Steve looks great...dont get off track..most of my builds that started out that way got side-tracked and put aside or I would get some ideas in my head that were way off base from the original ideas...

box stock?? what is that? hard to wrap my mind around that one. do you mean you build it from the parts that you have in boxes? surely you can't mean the parts in just one box. hmmmm gonna have to think about this for a while. may even try that one day. BTW the vette is looking good steve.
