67 Corvette Convertible Revell Kit

Recommended Posts

This will be my summer project. I haven't been on the forum for quite some time. I did a 55 Chevy last summer and I have yet to post pics of that in another post.

This one will be a stock build as true to original as I can do with the supplies I have available. I'll update with pics as often as I can. I'm going for completion in just a couple weeks. Keep me on track!

Great subject for a summer project Eddie, and nice paint work on the engine.

Just finished part of the pulley system. Painted the alternator as well. Will hopefully try to attach this evening along with its belt. First time. Harder than I thought.

Just about done with engine. I dropped the fuel pump somewhere on my kitchen floor after I painted it. Not very happy about that. It's not that big of a deal except that I wanted to attempt a over engine fuel line on this build. Any thoughts?

Also have a picture of the distributor. I am rather uninspired with my light blue plug wires. The original had braided wired from what I can tell in pictures that I can find online. Any thoughts on that? Suggestions for braided line that small?

Just about done. There are a couple of small tubes I want to add as well as a fuel line. I found the fuel pump! I went ahead and went with the light blue plug wires, mostly because it's all I had. It came out nice I think.

I need advice on gauge wire to use as upper and lower hoses. also for wiring the alternator and battery when I get to that. Any ideas? Thanks for taking a look. Time to get started on chassis tomorrow.

Looks good. The shielded plug wires (braided) were on cars with radios. You could go radio delete now if you took it out of the dash...

Finally making some progress. Shot it with an enamel can. Hated it. Striped it. Reshot it with acrylic in my airbrush and dollar general mop and shine for clear. The picture doesn't do it justice. It came out pretty nice but I got a little careless and ended up with some dust under the clear. Oh well. It's going on a shelf. First time I've used acrylic craft paint cut with glass cleaner. Pretty happy with the process. It will improve each time I do it. Decals next and getting closer to final assembly.
