Firewall recess in. Now to see how I can fit a dashboard in over it.


Figgered those blobby thingies was the Ferrari's exhaust system ( it is now ) so routed the pipes forward and tucked towards the new rear.  Oh, yeah, scratches up a rear gun of sorts.

Not your average production model here. Looks like you are having lots of fun Clay! I need a rear gun like that to shoot at speed cameras.

I'm having way too much fun starting on the body mods. Forcing myself to pull off this morning. I have a few chores I have to do !

The quad headlight housings are being designated for a battery of AOAVs (Anti Other Apocalypse Vehicle) guns. Found a jeep that I robbed the front off of and mated it to the Plymouth front .


No headlights for the Jeep , so I'm using the backside of some Ford hubcaps for the headlight buckets.

Did a little this afternoon. Have it up om wheels. Had to radius the wheel wells as I had expected and found the Ferrari chassis was too low for the back of the Ply, so had to raise the now , rear, portion about a 1/4 inch.

Clay I love it when you start working with a pile of parts and then to see what comes out of them. The rear wheel wells look like they were done with an axe. perfect, just perfect.

Wrapped up my holiday weekend playing in the shop !!   Gave a go at making the AOAVs starting with drilling some (a lot)  of holes  in some plastic tubing after changing the front bumper a bit.

Added some more tubing and viola, 4 AOAVs


Mock up in primer. Spent the rest of the afternoon making nerfs for the wheel wells.

Thanks, All.
I'm having a blast with this genre, I may have to do some more.

Today I plan to start on the interior and get with the detail painting of some of this!
