"Up In Smoke" 64 Chevy Impala

Recommended Posts

I was going through my collection i'd came across an old Revell 64 Impala that i had and one car came to mind when i was watching "Texas Car Wars" when Rodriquez Rod And Cycle was replicating Cheech's Love Machine for a customer.

The "Love Machine" is on my to do list. I look forward to seeing how your build comes out. I remember someone posting his "Love Machine" build on this forum or another forum. A helpful tip from that build was that he used small plastic beads from a craft store for the red dingle balls.

I pulled this build back out of hibernation after being stashed away for 4 years due to no inspiration. Last week i painted the body with Mr. Spray Chestnut Brown.

I masked off the body painted the drivers door with Rust Oleum Harbor Blue, brushpainted the primer spots with Tamiya Liquid Surface Primer and sprayed Testors Dullcote to give it that flat, dull look.

I guess I didn't get the memo, but apparently, Cheech & Chong movies are not considered politically correct today! Still one of the funniest movies ever! Glad to see this one made it back out of isolation, hope to see it finished, it is a great idea.
