41 willys roadster

Post by doorslammerfan on Mon 01 Apr 2013, 6:58 pm

Our club is having a convert a convertible night in May, so you can make a kit thats never been produced as a convert into one or a convertible thats never been a hardtop/coupe into one. So .......one that caught my eye online a couple years ago was a swoopy willys roadster.So since the only time I'd build something like this is for a theme like this here go's. Off with the roof (strangely enough Very Happy ) sectioned the hood and filled the hole. the bit behind the seats is from the Old AMT 58 Impala (tounneu sp cover) severly sectioned then narrowed and seats are out of (I think ) the Revell 37 Ford coupe. Will have at this stage , the Fuel injected small block chev from the Testors Boyds coupster.





Once I'm happy with the area behind the seat tops ,I'll work on laying back the headlight area of the front guards for some carraera headlights.

some one stoleded your wheels Very Happy . your back area (where the roof was) looks more rounded than mine, much smoother looks heaps better, but I'll keep at it.,Cut the headlights off the guards at a bit of an angle, didnt go to extreme then put plates over the holes. Once its all set up nice and strong I'l blend them in. Was a bit disappointed with the Porsche headlights as they're only a clear lens. I'll have to foil under and around them

Personally , i would run with the Boyd's, Adam built the Boyd's roadster and they are a very sexy looking set of wheels , pics don't do them justice i think, also being big n' littles sets it off too. Motor will suit it i think, needs to move back a tad, but gonna look AWSOME Brett, keep at it mate.

thanks guys, reshaped the rear wheel openings a little, then opened and hinged the trunk, made gutters for the rain it will never see to run off in and got the chassis all together.




also put valves in all the tires. Do you think the yellow's bright enough?

Got the 1st wet coat on today , will give it a light wet sand and re coat in a day or 2. Nearly finished up the interior, going to put a nav sat cd player on the black piece.





Adam, there will be a few colours in my body line stripe if I can pull it off, but you'll just have to wait and see.
