Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

too many things on the go, decided to put my energy into finishing the stepper.
if i only knew what a pia this old truck was going to be, i would have dropped it on the floor & stepped on it! should have just kept the body & scratched the rest.
got the interior together. being a mix-mash of parts, nothing fit, even had to make a steering column. 'bout the only part on this truck that has'nt been cut, modified, trimmed, sanded, scratched, was the seat. paint & drop in.

...for about 12 seconds & this picture. soon as i put the box & interior tub in it, my homemade frame sagged a mil or 2 so the box & cab did'nt quite line up-bummer! thinking going to have to rotate them axles or drop the t-case, got some severe driveshaft angles happening!

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

hey, thanks OlBlue!
first day of spring? yeah right, just got 3 more inches of rain. horrible, horrible yr for hrs. got to do something to keep my mind off the bills! cant be affording the 60+ bucks for the old truck kits i like right now, so...more re-hashing!
old wrecker model ('bout 20 yrs old). wrecker body will probably migrate to a '72 chev. undecided to go with a checkerplate flatdeck & make a knarly ol' bush truck, or shorten the frame to fit a shortbox i have & do a 1 ton dually shortbox. of course it will be 4x4

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

I just stumbled on this thread, and thought someone had stolen my models!!! I have a crapload from in my mothers attic, that thinking someday I will do something with them...But right now my G/F is on her way home so we can get a real truck to build!!! I book marked the page where you got the tires and wheels and stuff, I will be building a model of my truck next winter.

Biggest problem I have is no where to paint. When it's nice out Im always doing something else, this summer probly playing softball with my daughter, and when not with her then riding the 4 wheelers with the G/F that she was so nice enough to buy!!!!! Your builds are awesome, I will be watching..

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

yeah b454rat, if you want to 4by any model, BNL Resin is the place to go. you might want to check out these guys too, LOTS of cool rims
http://www.scenesunltd.com/
i get most of my junk from these two
and i'm always po'ing the wife for trying to spray my models in the house, too cold in the garage as well as real danger from doggie damage!
once the nice weather hits, pretty much be it for models till next winter. we be camping & quadding too!
did decide to go flatdeck though, shortbox dually porportions just did not look right.
spent a half an hour getting the revell 1 ton rim to fit the swamper....times 6....
Name:  1543.jpg
Views: 400
Size:  51.1 KB

started throwing together a flatdeck
hate how a "flat" flatdeck leaves everything uncovered hanging out lookin' ugly, so 2 lock boxes & checkerplate side skirting will go on, maybe a big c.plate tool box across the front too
another gumby revell model, everything is molded in, the engine, visor, master cyc, mufflers, bah! list goes on. luckily when i first built it i cut out the molded engine & dropped a 350 in it. would like to go 454, dont have one, but i do have a 427, so there it be. going to remove a bunch of the molded in this time too
