68 Chevelle

Post by Tubman on Sun 19 May 2013, 11:00 pm

This is a commissioned build I am doing of a guys 1:1. I'm starting with an R&R resin kit from Steve at Resin Relm, pretty much threw the chassis away as all the suspension was molded to it. I will be using the chassis from the 69 olds cutlass, it's a perfect fit. Also tossed the bonnet as it was all out of shape, used the bonnet from a 68 El Camino. Was a bit suss on the chrome bumpers but they are pretty damn good.
Paint is House of Kolor Katchme Kopper on the top and straight black on the bottom. The stripe is a silver gold mix with orange pin stripe, then clear coated, all in acrylic lacquer. Need to let it harden for a week or 2 then a quick sand and polish.
Wheels are from the 55 Chev sports coupe, thanks Paul, just need to get some Pegasus sleeves for the rears.
Hopefully get it wrapped in the next couple of weeks.
