Dodge Daytona IROC


Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure that I've posted the beginnings of this build way back when but it's been so long I figured that I would start over.

I started this build over 7 years ago and like so many other projects it stalled out. Now, I've made a mid-year resolution to dedicate myself to completing some older, started builds. 

This is a 91 Dodge Daytona IROC build using a True Value promo (plastic) kitbashed with an AMT 90's era chassis/suspension and a whole bunch of scratchbuilding and added detail. I cleaned up the body and then made adjustments to the chassis to make it fit. I am hinging the hood and the rear hatch. When complete it will be a full detail build.

After just getting back to it I have finished the prep on the body and it now has color. I am also getting started on some of the small detail areas like creating better gauges for the dash.

More to come.

I had a Chrysler Laser XT (a name plate Daytona) at the same time these were running. One of my favorite cars. I really should do the same thing.

Truely impressive build Wayne! Your attention to detail and execution are top rate, the construction and paint are flawless.

More engine bay details. Radiator installed and added plumbing. And, the grill screen installed. I also discovered that I made a huge mistake that has to be fixed. With limited research when I started the build I never realized that these cars didn't use a fuel break. They filled the tanks by lifting the rear hatch. So now I have to see if I can create a plug for the side of the body where I created the fuel break without ruining the body.
