I have a couple of these AMT kits laying around, parts missing from both, and one the windshield frame is broken on, but it looks like I have enough to knock out a simple build on.

Thinking a mild patina on this, lowered in the weeds, on wide whites. Kind of a drivers car not a show car.

while the other body is drying from its first coat of primer I figured Id use the one with the broken frame to mock up the suspension, just flipped the knuckles up front and slammed the back to the tires.

tires are Modelhause 430 (repop of the front tires in the revel 29 rat rod) with kit steel wheels

I love this kit. You have a good start going. That stance and the tires and wheels are great. I like the idea of a driver for this one. Keep it going.

Thanks guys..

Played with some color on the hood, I think I might be onto something. Don't plan on getting too carried away.

Thanks guys, should be ale to make some progress next week. Going out of town this weekend, so nothing in the next few days.

Was debating between this gold and dark blue. I think I like the gold.

Now I have to decide if I want to keep the molding or not, I'm thinking I will.

That's not bare plastic, it's white primer.

Was thinking red wheels and maybe red interior?
