'67 Mercury Comet

Here's my AMT '67 Mercury Comet. The trunk was cut open and I added a hinge so it could lift open. The kit was missing pieces, so I couldn't build it stock. Hence, I decided to make it into a stock car. I stole the engine from my parts box and modified it just a bit to better resemble the Ford engine. I cut out the fuel filler door and removed the windshield wipers, as well as all of the trim from the body. This was missing the firewall, so I made a resin copy. I used athletic tape to simulate the heat shield material on the interior floor. I scratchbuilt the rollcage, the side panels, and made a bolster for the seat. I lowered the ride on all four tires just a little. I then had to scratchbuild the fuel cell, filler pipe, and overflow hose. Finally put on some decals and called it done. Here's the pics:
