67' Coronet R/T10 TT

Post by DeeCee on Tue 03 Feb 2015, 9:04 pm

This started as the Revell 67' Dodge coronet  "Foose" version, with a bit of Viper thrown in.  Twisted Evil

Opened up the rear flutes, as air flow will be important. Smile

The power plant, most of it, anyway.

Thanks Dean and Mick,  NO,  i could not leave the dremel alone mate,
The motor is from a Viper that i am using as a parts donor for this build, i am going to use a few bits from it.
As for Adam mate, a plastic kit is not as appealing as a girl at this point in time, and a license too,  so i am lucky to see him at all now.

Abit of an update:


Also  pumped the rear guards to make room for more rubber.

Nice work on this , you really pump these builds out and all look awesome . It takes me ages to finish a build. Baby sitting a 2yo granddaughter 3 days a week does slow things down a bit but I would not swap it for anything .

I know what ya thinkin' Mr Dee... any minute now that "Ol' 55"
(Jerry) is gonna ask some questions!...Yep ya right!....
Those "velocity tubes" "intake tubes" whatever you call them...
where'd the heck they come from?... I'm always looking at ways
to mod an engine, apart from building from the box. Smile.
BTW... Great work so far mate.

First,  THANKS guys,  a few more tricks up the sleve yet though.
#2 Jerry, this is a pretty common question mate,
they are DEUTSCH DT  electrical pins, found in machinery and race car  electrical connections,
they are available but you can pay $2. each, but come in a pack of 20 usually, i also make my distributors out of them
so in reality, still a lot cheaper than those PE distributors, but a V10 becomes expensive with injection though.
Have used them on quite a lot of engines, coz they look great i think.

Dale mate, for that info,... I thank you. I'm always on the scrounge for
components to help make engines and models look a little different,
without going to silly. Those connectors look a real treat as "injection
tubes". I'm also on a quest to find items to represent "Velocity Stacks",
as I'm running out of carbs & blowers.
Thanks again for your valuable info my friend. twothumbsup

The interior is coming together,
i had to remove the trans tunnel , to make way for the larger Viper 6 speed, also will run 4 x Viper bucket seats
and have added the Viper dash fascia too.

Looking good Dale, thats a great idea for widening the guards, will have to try it, looks way easier than shortening an axle

still not perfect, so a base coat next to pick out the problems, and sand some more, i also needed to pump them for a bit of a surprise down the line... Smile

Abit of boot work next,
REMOVE


AND FILL.

That was attempt #1, but the fuel cell sat too close to the boot lid, and left no room for the filler neck, so out it came and tried again.

Cut up a donor bonnet from a challenger and grafted it onto the Coronet bonnet.

Sticky backed felt,  $1 a sheet, makes life easier sometimes mate.
