Here is a 62 bird i recently finished up. I scratchbuilt, the whole interior/ leafsprings, and theres a whole lot else that i had to build. I used the frame,body,firewall,and front suspension from this kit. The rest is either from the parts box or scratchbuilt.

That's some serious derbyage there!! However I would hate to see that be the fate of a 1:1 'Bird.

Wow, those are some huge bolts holding down that hood! Looks like the nuts would scale out to about 6 inches across! :lol:

Its prolly around 1in. or 1 1/4 althread in 1:1. Not uncommon on a demo car. I believe they are 1's. The zeros are smaller but the nuts are the same. Besides it looks better then a piece of roundstock shoved through the hood....

It looks battered and beaten then hammered back into shape for the next round.

Distressing plastic to have that appearance is not an easy task.

Well done
