This one is ready for paint. My original plan was to use a 60 plymouth wagon body but I didn't want to cut the cowl or glass. Then when looking for my skyline r32 body I found a much better option. I think it is a revell m3 body but I got rid of the m3 bumpers and used some from a lower spec version (318i). The chassis on this is a bit of a bugger to get to hold together but that could just be my sausage fingers. The chassis is pretty much all stock jukebox and only needed a little trimmed of the rear of the tubs and rear floor to fit. I even managed to use the wing sides from the ford but had to make a new centre as I stuffed up cutting it. Even the hood scoop fitted the curve of the bmw hood but I sanded the back to fit the glass better. I'm dreading cutting the glass to clear the carbs but I have a spare if needs be.
INSANITY at it's best mate, that is cool !!! I would slowly file the glass away, less chance of it cracking.
cheers mate, i'd rather not have to use my spare glass as I have another body to use it on. I dont have any chassis with my e36 kits but the other might be a tow car for this. A very simple curbside with no chassis and a couple of wire axles will do the job and wont take long since it is painted already
Very nice, looking forward to seeing more of this. Have had success by heating an old blade till its red hot and guide it through smaller than needed then used files to take it out to where it needed to be
leon: Thanks for sharing the great pics Les! Seems odd seeing a Corvette and Mustang there.
