Got this yesterday before I went to the Unity meet in Parramatta. I picked it up for only $25.50AUD after nearly being ripped off on the internet by a seller trying to get me to pay $44AUD for it. So because I saved about $19 I'm going to get the AMT 1970 Impala soon too. The 63 Impala is going to go aside for a little bit because the paint has pissed me off. The majority of these pictures are just of the kit with the wheels in place, for the effect of the stance and things like that.

Plans so far and red interior, red exterior, 18" Pegasus chrome wires, 2 subs with amp, 4 pumps & 6 batteries. I'll have to open the boot and I'm thinking about reversing the hinges front and back.

Only thing that is wrong with this is that it was missing one rear tail light, can anyone help me out with that please? Thanks for reading this.








Here is the box for anyone who wants to know what kit it is


I'll post more progress sooner then later, within the next few days.
:puffin:

Thanks for telling me how to fix that Scans. Fucking Imagestation :uh:

I just finished painting the interior a base red, it'll be slow progress because the whole model is molded in black just about.

I'm thinking about red with a gold undercoat for the body or, just black for the body. I really like the sound of a red Monte but the interior works with the colour the body is molded in. Could anyone post up some pictures, or links of/to the boots of these Monte Carlo SS'?? I need some reference because I am opening the boot to put the juice and system in there.

I'll post a picture of the taillight this afternoon, maybe some parts site has one. Hopefully I'll get the light, I'm thinking about just puttying the back lights and putting some LEDs under the bumper.


I won't put a racing stripe on it, because I just want a plain colour, I want to put a vinyl roof on it though :biggrin:

The vinyl top sounds good! ;)
Yeah, only thing is is that I need some chrome strips that would seal the 'vinyl' from the body on the C pillar. I was thinking, what about doing the interior red, the roof the same red, and the body black?

Yes, it was going to be a two tone, and as I said it is only a basecoat. Give a man a break, geez! Why would you cut a perfectly good brush down anyway? I can get perfect results out of a brush if I need too, I never spraypaint my interiors, whats the fun in that? I just get smooth results by using a bigger brush and good paint. Thanks Model Pimp for showing again that it is just the base colour, and how did you know it would be 2 tone? It is black and red now. I'm thinking about matching the interior to the exterior, adding some red LEDs underneath and giving it a name.

Here is a little bit more work done to the interior. it is still only 30% done as BASE colours. You'll know when it isn't base colours any more, it will have a shit load of detail.

By base colour I mean that it is just the base of the interior, I need to add alot of detailing to it! Base as in just the foundation to 'build' the rest of the colours off.

Dag- I'd put kandy ghost flames on it but I don't know how, and I might just do some red patterning on it, or something like that.
