Lil Coffin pick up rebuild

Post by Bigdaddy0 on Tue 18 Feb 2014, 10:52 pm

Hi all I found this in my old built stash on the weekend and have decided to put it on my bench to be rebuilt. I built this over 15 years ago, I added inverted corvette headlights, moved the roof forward and added twin blowers. These are the before shots as it looks today. My idea is to return the red walls to white walls, keep the twin blowers, hide the exhaust, maybe redesign the interior and roof line and give it a general clean up. Any ideas? Hope you like it.

Oooooooo a Wreck-scue! Love it already. Be interesting to see what you do with this.

One thing I would do ...enlarge the intake holes on the blower hats ...that thing would be weeeezing for air about 2,000 rpm with the current ones hehehe

I like it as it is.
I think i'd just give it a clean, make the red walls white again, wire the engine and go over it with some washes to bring out the detail.

Thanks for the comments fellas. I'm now undecided as to what to do with this. It will have a massage on some slight imperfections in the body and those flamin red walls will be gone, what was I thinking. A new paint job is on the cards as well. I appreciate the positive comments , thanks for looking.
