WORKIN' On The RANCHERO FRAME!

I used the Frame from a Vintage Deal's Wheels Tirebird.

First I fit the Frame to the inside of the RAMCHERO Body.

Then I trimmed the tops of the Frame untill I got a Good Fit and the Tires were positioned right!

I cut the rear of the Frame off at an angle to fit inside of the rear of the RAMCHERO.

Then I cut a piece of Sheet Plastic to fit the cut -off area. I Glued it in with Zap-A-Gap.

End of Part 1... :)

WORKIN' On The RAMCHERO FRAME...Part 2!!!

After I got a Good Fit, I cut Sheet Plastic to fit where the tops of the Frame touch the body. Glued them in with Zap-A-Gap.

This will make mounting the body Easy & Secure!

Then I sanded the Frame smooth and painted it with Black Primer.

Coming along nicely!

Could the rear sit a little lower? Closer to the wheels maybe.

BiG REAR END!!!

RAMCHERO needs a BiG REAR END, and I found one in a 16th scale '56 T'Bird!

That is going to be so cool when it's finished. I wish I had the talent to dream up and create something like that.

I am pretty happy with the Painted Trim as compared to BMF Trim.
