BEEP BEEP!!

Post by DeeCee on Mon 28 Jul 2014, 2:12 pm

Been chopping away at this one for a few weeks now, Monogram 70 Plymouth Road Runner.


Started by getting it low,
mini tubs, and Z'ed the chassis.



Next, a bench seat was not going to work, so i halved it, narrowed it and ended up with buckets with adjustable head rests that now match the rear seat pattern.



Opened up the boot.



Made my own torsion rods with some new brackets because they were touching the floor pan.


Separated the diff from the springs and made some lowering blocks.


And Allan, it's going to be GREEN.  tongue

Thanks guys, Allan,  NO!!  Not frog green.  Laughing 
Put the rear wheel arches back on, instead of being attached to the side of the chassis rail, i put them on top of it,
in effect, moving them inwards, and upwards.


This will be the main color, just with some pearl powders added and some silver for the 2 tone.


The stance is sorted.

I suppose all frogs are green Al, so i suppose your right, i a way mate. Smile

Underneath detail is done, brake lines and fuel lines are routed through the chassis and the brakes are off a WRX WRC race car.





440 six pack is plumbed aswell.


And the boot has been smoothed inside aswell.

Thank you Deaf as and Mutley, Allan, get up off the floor. Smile
The paint is just some Green acrylic with green pearl added on the upper color, and some silver added to the side layers.





And with the BMF  done.

Looking great Dale, I just picked on of these up a few weeks ago, this'll give me some ideas for sure.
It's great the way some of these older kits lend themselves to lowering this easy, good work so far mate  bigthumbsup

Thanks very much guys,
that build looks pretty close to being done , and those wheels suit the yellow. I think there is something about these wheels that do look tough yet still modern on this shape. Reckon you should finish it, or send it to me. Smile
