No not the Cord! I have the same Cord kit and wanted to see a build of it.Guess I'll need to suffer through the fact that your combining one of my favorite cars with one of my not so favorate cars.But,eveything you make turns out amazing so i'm still interested in this build.

Ira, I already can tell you I like where this is going. Are you modifying one or both of them?

SECTION The BODY!!!

First I removed the rear fenders.

Then I removed about 3/4" from the center of the Cord Body, glued it back together and rough sanded it.

Thanks Dr.!

I am making one body using the parts from 3 or 4 bodies, 2 Cords, a Corvette and maybe the Testarossa...

Alright, this is what I came to see, lets cut them up. I can't wait to see what you come up with, but I will. You want to give us hint of what your plans are?

GOT THE TOP!

I cut the top off the Corvette with a Cut-Off Wheel in a Dremel Tool.

FOUND the RIGHT SPOT!!!

Using the Corvette Top as a guide, I positioned the Top on the Cord Body.

Then I marked the Spot!

HIT the SPOT!

After cutting out the marked lines on the Cord Body, I attached the Corvette top in place as shown.

THE BASIC PLAN...

Here is a mock up of the basic idea that I have for CORDVETTE.

I am letting the design evolve as I am building...

Ira, love your builds! Makes me want to get ALL of my models spread out on the floor and see what I might be able to combine together! Keep it up!
