72 Chevelle

Post by dv8v8 on Sat 10 Nov 2018, 10:07 pm

i have had a Jaymar fiberglass  HK monaro for a very long time, it was originally purchased to one day convert into a HG monaro, however Tubman makes a very nice resin HG and i have one, so i have decided to turn this one into a South African Chevelle, it will remain a curbside, so the chassis is a piece of styrene, the wheels came from my spares box, the interior came from The Parts Box (i think), the body was so thin i had to reinforce it by pouring resin inside, still got a lot to do but this is where i am up to so far

Did not know that they were called Chevelle in South Africa thought they were just called Chevrolet.
Grille looking good too.

after a setback with paint, time and weather conspired against me but eventually the elements aligned and the paint was sorted out, hopefully there will be a lot more progress in the near future.
