    Great find on the pictures and the negatives. You might think about a little scrap book for your Mustang. Like the stance on your build. 

    Thanks Dave!! I've already got one....I just didn't have these pictures in there yet. lol .

    Following this one. My son has an Acapulco Blue ‘67 coupe. His first car. I got a resin coupe conversion and built his car. The PE is really good too.

    Great job on the headlight conversion. I built this custom in 1988 when the kit was new, and I hated the headlights even then; so I used cut down Monogram Monkees GT convertible lights to spruce it up a bit. The new tool Revell lights should look a lot better. 

    Now that.............is BAD A$$!!!!!

    Stance looks great , Joe.   Who really remembers but they was together and protected and not thrown out buddy..

    Thanks Carl and right you are pal. I'll be taking the negatives to get processed sometime this week and should have some more pictures up of the 1:1 car. REALLY stoked to get those back.

  4. I also found me some BONUS SHOTS of my old car!!!!!  I'm currently doing a bathroom renovation to our master bathroom and needed some tools that were hidden away in the "house toolbox" by my wife. While looking for the tools I found a small plastic box with.......a whole load of pictures of my old blue Mustang PLUS a slew of negatives that I'll be taking to a photo developer here in town to have pictures printed up with. Frickin' SCORE!!!! 

     

    Here are those missing pictures of my '69 Mach 1 351W in my '67 while it was under construction. Man.....I haven't seen these things in 10 years. Now.....what tha hell were they doing in the dang tool box for? ORSAY9.gif

  5. Did some work stance wise this morning. The front got some re-positioning of the front spindles, a little sanding here and a little drilling there. All the rear springs needed was a slight re-arching. Now it's starting to look more like I want it to with a slight forward rake.

    Hi Joe, I missed this one first time around. Absolutely beautiful build sir. As one of the others said, I’m neither a Charger, nor a GL expert, but that is a stunning build. Love it!

    Really appreciate that Steve!! 

  7. Right on brutha!! That's a great job on that replication.

    One of the things that I like most about this site is most everyone's willingness to chip in and help out. I built a 59 El Camino for one of my friends son a few years back and people came out of the wood work to chip in and help out. Awesome!! 

    Btw....tbill (Tom Billings) is definitely one of the coolest dudes around here.

    I totally agree with you on this!, Joe!  I'm looking forward to your progress on this build!

    Thanks Mike!! Glad you're tagging along.

    Oustanding work...I love your take on it! I'm sure I will build mine in similar fashion. The wheels and stance are perfect!

     

    Thanks Gareth and Pat!! LOTS of fun building this one.

  10. Well .....in seeing Mikes example above and given the fact that I've built one of these somewhere around 15 years ago and I remembered that the stance was a nose high look.......I decided to do a mock up to check everythign out and it was just what I expected.....it has a nose high look to it.  I have a spare AMT GT-350 in the stash so I cut the necessary sprues from the trees and mocked everything up just to check. Man.....there's gonna need to be some fancy footwork to straighten this out if I'm going to get this thing to look like 1.) the box top (which is severely misleading if a builder thinks that this kit will build up just like the picture) and 2.) look like I want it to look personally.

    On a couple of other notes.....

    1.) If you've never built one of these, pay attention to the attachment wheel retainers (that I have marked "R" for rear and "F" for front. They are different sizes meaning the rear retainer has a larger hole for the axle then the front does for the spindle.

    2.) The box top shows Firestone Wide Oval Tires and the kit has these Super Sports instead. Not a game changer but hey.....put what's ON the box IN the box. C'mon!!! Same goes for the stance. Just sayin'.  KGNEu4
