Doyushi 1969 BlueBird (Warning! DOH in Progress.)

Recommended Posts

Well during my 2 week gig of house sitting I started a quick project

(Quick Project: One build that might be done with in 6 months of starting)

Even managed to get it painted.

Next came some BMF and wheel selection.

The bolts will be removed when Glued. Just helps hold it together for fitting.

Somehow an orange Bluebird doesn't sit well, but it works just fine for me.

I've really been wanting to locate one of these- I'm assuming its a 1:24 curbside style kit, right?

Deciding wheels tho.

DOH wheels or watanabe wheels or???

Yes, It is 1/24 and Curbside MrMost.

The turbines look pretty good on it, but I'd go with the Watanabe wheels just for the kink factor (given the paint/graphics scheme in this case). :D

DANNO!!!!

Wow, I've never seen one of these just hatched, what do you feed it? How old do they have to be before they can start jumping rivers? When do you weld the doors shut? Wow, so many questions!!

Thanks for posting.

Nobody likes a Nark BigMike ^_^:lol: .

I had No plans to do a DOH, but Danno was just bagging for another one.. :D

Atleast it is a 1969 Datsun. Starts with a D just like Dodge..

Soo your saying I should cut the windows out too?

Okay, I'm easy..

Good Idea MrMost, I think I can just paint them up like the Turbines. Silver with a Black inner rim-ish?

Sounds like a plan to me!

Gotta ask- that wouldn't happen to be a set of Mopar cop wheels on it in the very first pic, would it?

I just knew How much ya loved DOH builds Danno so I just had to do it..

Guess I'm just Insane Crazy or Crazy insane but my Doc says I'm all better now every time I track him down.

Just wish he'd quit moving but I guess he likes the Hide and seek games we play?

Basic theme of this build:

"May the Bluebird of Hazzardness carp all over your dukes, general-lee speaking."

My work here is done.

I feel it's time to get this one finished.

Building a Grill Guard for it

The Bolts won't be staying there but they will hold it together till I get it fixed.

maybe make it a bit narrower?

Looks like a great little build. Good to see it getting finished. I would think that the grille guard would look better narrowed about an 1/8 inch.

Later-
