AEROTREC!

AeroTrec is going to be an Anti-Gravity Racer! This aerodynamic shape could also be made into a Submarine or a Bonneville Racer.

My goal is to make the AeroTech body even, more Aerodynamic than it already is...

AeroTrec is based on parts from 2 Olds AeroTech Bodies. This kit has the option of 2 different Body Lengths. I went with the Long Body Parts.

MIRRORING THE REAR!!!

I started with the top Rear Section and cut off half of the Section behind the rear wheel wells. I also cut the Donor Rear Section in the same way. Next I cut out the lower part of the body sides, so that the Donor Body Section fits in place as shown.

The I cut the plastic around the Engine Compartment, so that it is flush with the New Bottom of the AeroTrec!

Very sweet. I always thought it'd be cool to build the aerotech as a two seater. Then my mind went to tandem seats, with a rear gunner ala WW II US Navy style.

ROUNDING OUT THE FRONT...

I cut plastic oversized shapes to fill the cuts and attached them with Zap-A-Gap-Green Label...

I cut the sides from the "Short" Rear Section of the AeroTech Body.

Then I cut the height of the sides down so that I could fit the Side Sections in. Then I glued them in place...

Next I cut the side pieces from, the Front Under Piece, and glued them in...

MORE ROUNDING...

I turned the body over and using the Front Underside Corners as a guide I ground off the excess plastic on top!

Here are the Top Corners after some more sanding...

To get inside Ira's mind would be a place not understandable to most of us mere plastic dabblers. I like everyone else will be eagerly following this build to see what he finally comes up with.
