IMPALA SS 427

Chopped 32 ford sedan

Recommended Posts

Finished this one today, I had no intentions of chopping it at first (i was going to build it like the box art) but after eyeballing it i thought the roof was too high, so i chopped it about 3 or 4 mm and put it back together. I didn't plan on smoothing the roof but after i brush painted the roof tan it looked bad. paint was uneven and i lost the texture of the roof so i block sanded it smooth and repainted it. the body on this was giving me hell, the paint kept going wrong so when i got it sort of good i settled with it so the paints not perfect.

Anyway i like the overall look of it and I'm pleased with the final result.

I made the mistake of using super glue during the final assembly and i ended up with the white fogging from it. I cleaned it up as best i could but I'm not sure how to remove it easily

All comments welcome.

That has turned out great. The chop looks just right and colors suit it perfect. Nice build.

The SHINY :) :) :) looks good. I guess what I thought was polishing compound is actually CA fog. Have tried rubbing it out?

That looks like a gangster hot rod, I like it, Funny how some mistakes end up looking better then what we start with. Good job.

The colour was a Power Plus Touch up paint i got from Supercheap on sale It was called Cranberry and although you cant really see in the pics its kinda metallic, it looks great in the sun.

Also i carefully went over the body with Q tips with water and got most of it off then i did the same with polish and it looks better but i sure won't be using super glue during final assembily again...

a chopped sedan not always seen here - good top chop! And the color looks great.

Only your headlights are lopsided. perhaps, you can fix it?

Thanks everyone for the comments.

I will fix the lights, I think the glue must have slipped (i literally glued them on a few seconds before i took the pics)
