My take on the 57 Chev

Post by dynodave on Tue 19 Oct 2010, 3:27 am

This is my take on the 1957 Chev kit. It has scratch built aluminium tube suspension + airbagged, 4 link rear and tubbed, chev logo embossed drop tank, photo etch grille, real velour headlining, clear glass in all the guages, custom Tamiya RC wheels and tyres, all the motor, gearbox and diff bolts were drilled out and replaced with chrome pins, this is also my own mixed paint from using pearl and kandy powders. Took over 300 hours to build this

Cheers, Dave

Geez Dave that is seriously sick. I can see why 300 hours went into it - it's terrific. Love the wheels, flames, side hinged hood...everything is stunning.
