'41 Chevy pick-up

Post by DeeCee on Thu 06 Apr 2017, 9:39 pm

This is something i have never done, i will be leaving the 6 cylinder in it..   Shocked



BUT it will be low..  Not sure about the wheels yet though.


This intake and exhaust... pfft...  doesn't cut it.


So i have made a new intake for it, and added some injection too..  



And found a color too.

Watching with great interest Very Happy

I am hoping to start this kit next week. Stock, but heavily weathered, to sit out the front of my Pub diorama.

See diorama page for Pub progress Very Happy

Thanks for watching guys, progress has been slow, too much to do on 1:1's lately, but today i got back into it.
Stripped the chrome from the wheels, and hit them with some Aluminium Alclad. ( my first time using it).




And spent a couple of hours in the paint room..
