My newest project is gonna be Lime Ice Testors one shot lacquer, so it's gonna be called the Snot Rod. All the shaded areas are getting removed. It's gonna have a big Mopar Hemi, crossrammed with 4 weber carbs. It'll be my first chop top, and my first hinged set of doors, so it's gonna be interesting.

Thanks Doc, and Fredo.

This one is pretty far outta my comfort zone, so it should be a fun change of pace.

Off to a great start, I like the mods. I'm building the same kit right now, but as a more traditional rod.

Are you using the hinges as supplied, or building slicker ones?

Thanks man.

I'm probably gonna smooth the kit hinges out, and do it suicide with scratch hinges since these are so fragile.

Sorry, didn't think about putting it in here guys. ;)

Thanks Pat.

Ya know, that would be really killer lookin, and different for an old rod. I might have to try that.

Thanks for the idea man.

I got everything cut up, and glued back together. Next I'll remove the kit's hinges, and smooth everything out for primer.

Thanks Richard.

This is the first pre 64 car other than my SWC Willys, that I've built since I was 10 or 11.

I tried to build 2 different ones. A 32 and a 33 Ford. Both turned out horrible, and promptly got trashed.

So this is pretty much uncharted water for me. I've got some pretty solid ideas for it though.

I'm gonna scratchbuild the intake, and try to get as close as I can to this kind of design here.

I think it will be cool.

hmm yes that def. a great idea :) COOL TO FOLLOW

i'm actually the other way r......... :P

i'm doing my best modeling with cars like this , the old models ..

tried a modern car a while back (a older japanese NISSAN LAUREL) .. super simple building if you ask me , only a few parts and not as much room for customising as the old timers ... but i just lost interest and found it boring :lol:

I'm building that pickup but the plastic is blue. I like the mods you're doing to yours.

Thanks guys. You're probably gonna think I'm crazy, but the creative juices were flowing last night; so I just went with the flow.

Here's what I have so far. Still have alot of smoothing out to do, but the drivers side is pretty much roughed in.

Thanks Jim.

I appreciate it man. I wasn't exactly sure how this one would be received.

Alot of work, but I think it'll be unique when it's done.

Corey, it will defintely be a one-of-a-kind model, I like the way you're thinking! Now you've gotta go with some kind of killer pearl or candy color!
