      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

My first resto-mod...Revell Plymouth Superbird

4 posts in this topic

Posted

Got bored earlier and decided to head down to the workshop. Wasn't sure what I wanted to work on...'66 Impala? Nahhh. '04 Corvette Z06? Not right now. So I glanced over and saw my Superbird that I had built perhaps 10 or so years ago, complete with its mismatched paint, brushed-on "vinyl" roof, and generally shoddy assembly, and the wheels in my head (slowly) started turning.

What I started with:

Managed to get it disassembled with breaking only the shifter lever lol

P1040096.jpg

Engine, wheels and tires are not pictured since they will not be used in this project. Not sure yet what colors are going to be, but this is the inspiration:

MMOYDaytona_4297_1000-700x461.jpg

I think I will be using the engine and some other bits from an abandoned Dodge Magnum project, and maybe some narrowed Pegasus wheels on the Magnum's kit tires. Stay tuned...

LOL thank you Steve ;)

Progress is on hold till next weekend, when I can get a couple new flourescent light tubes for my workbench...trying to work with flickering lights gives me a headache -_-

Also, not sold on the Pegasus wheels, I think they're just too big. I would like to find some suitable 18"s, much like Mr Angry's Daytona...
