  1. Slowly making some progress. Waiting on a distributor from Connkur to finish the engine.
  2. I sent a replacement form and pictures of my warped frame a month ago, never heard back from them. Very disappointed. I'll have to try and make the warped one work some way.
  3. Thanks. Since it will only be displayed inside, I'll probably just leave it as is.
  4. Looks like it could be made to work, but like already mentioned you would have to remove the front section of the Chevelle frame and graft on the front section of the Impala frame, the front wheel wells on the Chevelle are molded into the frame, and on the Impala they are molded to the body. Plus you would probably need the front section for mounting the engine. May need other mods to make everything line up. It could be done, but too much work for me to take on. I'm going with the stock version of the Impala, the Chevelle is all Pro Street and has a nice set of big slicks for the rear.
  5. That's me too Bob, I don't do any big modifications like that, scared I will mess up the whole kit. I do have the Chevelle Pro Street kit, I will check it out to see how it fits under the Impala.
  6. Thanks. I thought I had sanded them out, but I can still see them a little in the sunlight through the color coat.
  7. Ha.....I just bought this kit last week also. Sure would like to see those big tires on there, I'll be following.
  8. I had some Folkart Metallic Antique Copper craft paint, so I went with it. I noticed after priming I had what looked liked bullseye rings on both sides of the body just behind the door. I wet sanded and shot another coat of primer but couldn't get rid of it. You can still just barely see it even after the top coat in the pictures. It's not very noticeable inside though.
  9. That looks great. I just bought the T kit with the double build. Got some other stuff to get to before I get started on it.
  10. Thank you. I couldn't figure out what they were at first. Thanks.
  11. Thanks. The covers came in the kit.
  12. Mine had the in dash tach, but no instrument pod. I've been thinking of getting that kit and doing a replica, but it's hard to find right now. Yes, my insurance was also expensive, but I was toughing it out working with my Father in his logging business. I actually broke my rear end drag racing, and didn't have the money to get it repaired, finally sold it.
  13. I followed your build, you did a great job, it came out really nice. I've got the same problem with a warped windshield frame that you had. I contacted Revell over 3 weeks ago but have not heard anything from them. Not sure what I'm going to do with it when I get to that point. I'll figure something out.
  14. Couldn't get the body to sit as low as I would have liked. Turned out ok.
  15. My first car was a 66 Impala SS 396, Rochester 4 barrel. 325HP, with a Muncie 4 speed trans. It was red with black interior and had a bench front seat. Didn't realize how rare this one was until I started looking, most of them I see on the internet have the bucket seats with console. I was 18, fresh out of high school, and man that thing was fun and fast. Racked up quite a few wins with it at the Saturday night grudge matches we had at our local drag strip. Wish I still had it.
  16. Thanks. I brushed on a coat of floor polish, let it dry then added the decals, then brushed on another coat of floor polish. Maybe the decals will not sliver. Test fitted body to frame/interior and something is keeping it from going all the way down, maybe the tach. I'll have to take a closer look when I have more time.
  17. Interior.........photos not very good..........I had some antique copper craft paint and decided to experiment with it on the seats, just for ***** and grins. I think I will be using it on a 29 roadster I plan to start on soon.
  18. I've used their metallic aluminum, it's great. Goes on smooth, cures in about 20-30 minutes and looks great.
