68 plymouth roadrunner update 18/01/16

Post by vcv8273 on Mon 18 Jan 2016, 7:25 pm

Hi just a small update on whats been done today. Finished off the inner guards, primered and painted in duplicolor cyan blue rattle can and the underneath in black duplicolor. Also have primered and painted the fuel tank and floor section in black duplicolor. Havent glue them in yet as still need detailing. Also started on the motor and have one rocker cover done to see how it looks against the blue. Thinking that I may also do the interior red instead of the usual black or white for something a little different. Cheers and thanks for looking. Any comments welcome.

68 plymouth roadrunner update 29/01/16

Post by vcv8273 on Fri 29 Jan 2016, 11:37 am

Just a small update of the build over the last couple of days. Working on the rear end I noticed after painting the diff mount the middle section of the sway bar was square and wasn't satisfied with it and although you cant really see it, it didn't look right so I removed the centre section and replaced it with some round styrene and now looks heaps better. Also with the diff bracing it was solid so I removed some of the plastic to make it look more realistic. Got the front and rear suspension in and mocked it up to see the final ride height and am happy with the way it turned out. Painted the bonnet and decided to paint only the bonnet vents black for a bit of a different look. Now its on to the interior tonight. Cheers and thanks for looking. Any comments welcome.

That is some pretty awesome work on the front and rear end mate,.... very impressive.
And the stance is spot on, black vents on the bonnet look good too.

Thanks Dale and Geoff was worried when it came time gluing it all together with all the mods to the floor pan and rails that it may not line up but to my surprise all four wheels sit level on the ground. Cheers

68 plymouth roadrunner update 02/02/16

Post by vcv8273 on Tue 02 Feb 2016, 3:33 pm

Hi been working on the grille and rear tail lights the past couple of days. I wasnt impressed on the chrome headlights after all the work I have done to the rest of build so I drilled out the chrome lenses and had to file down some parts box lenses as everything was to big. I cut some styrene and bmf it then glued it behind the head lamps. On the tail light side I sanded down the outer part of the lense and then glued some styrene to the outer rim of it, then sanded it down to a suitable trim size. Then bmf it then painted it and think they look better than the stock ones. I also removed the plastic from behind the tail lights so they fit more flush. And yes the left is on the right and visa versa as they seem to line up better with the boot crease. Any comments welcome and cheers for looking

Those tail lights look great, even though they lack the outer rim I was too lazy to add that to mine, now I see yours I wish had!!
It's coming along well VC bigthumbsup

Hi thanks 70cudatj have been working on the body the past week or so and now have it painted,bmf and in clear coat. I have yet to polish it so see if it may need another coat of clear or a cut back with wet and dry but think it has come out all right. Unfortunately the door and some of the boot emblems didn't have the depth for the paint work so I had to remove them and hoping to come across some decals to put in their place.Now on to the interior. Cheers and thanks for looking. Any comments welcome

68 plymouth roadrunner update 02/17/16

Post by vcv8273 on Wed 17 Feb 2016, 5:38 pm

Hi Thanks deaf as and antwon for your comments. Have started paint work on the interior and will be mainly a combo of testers bright red but with dull-cote, gloss and straight from the can combo. Have opened up the headrest on the front buckets and also made a backing for them as you don't see the backs in a viper. The dash now fits well and have the gauge decals in but still have to detail the dash. Converting the floor to a flat smooth finish for a different look and have removed the window cranks to simulate having power windows. Still have to wait until i have finished attaching the interior panels and dash to the floor so I can get the right position of the console so i can get everything fitting flush like it is supposed to be there. Cheers and thanks for looking. Any comments welcome

Thanks Dale for your positive feedback. Couldnt believe it when I checked out the new mopar action that they have a charger in it with the same mods that I have done to the roadrunner. Hope to have the interior finished in the next couple of days. Cheers
