AMT '65 Chevelle El-Camino gasser

Recommended Posts

This Is just being built with whats in the box, plus wiring etc. So a fairly straight forward build. It is going to be a custom Gasser. This is a great kit, but the body and parts a plagued with sink marks! so a lot of filling required! any ways onto the pics.

The engine is pretty cool so will be used as is. Though the chrome will be stripped in my usual manner, and it will be wired.

All the badges have bean removed, door and tailgate hndles shaved and fuel filler door filled.

Filled the rear light recesses, as the lights will be in the bumper.

I've also rescribed the trunk and door panel lines as they were not very well defined and would have been covered up with the primer etc.

the result after lots of filling, sanding filling, sanding etc etc
