Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

ya, it's an exciting time Dale.....then the wait starts...to keep costs down, my buddy will be spreading it over a couple mos.
he'll prob need it just for the bodywork...
rockers need some work, and there's about 7 or 8 dents down the pass side.

hard to tell under the lights (makes it actually look better...lol) but this side is "wavy" and denty, but at least it's the worst side.

dr side is good for dents, just one up on the fr fender. tailgate has dents (it's that light thing making it look good again) there's 3 dents in the back of the cab around the winda, one dent on the roof, and one dent in the hood.
tomorrow i'll undo the bed bolts and put my small tires on it and take it to the shop.
time to break out the wallet..lol

color is woodlawn green, or forest ranger green as i call it. ex-forest service truck, orig paint, been looking at buddy's color charts, he's got some nice greens in there...maybe just a tad darker with some metallic-ness in it...not a 100% sure, but it will be some shade of green

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

finally finished the blazer....
almost a waste of a kit..lol used just the 3/4's, part of the frame, and the int tub. cab and front clip are from the revell hot rod truck, seats from a '99 silverado, and the big block is built from parts from the spare box...
prob be the last big 4x4 build for awhile, once again our dollar is in the toilet, and my resin caster just doubled(!) his shipping rates again...a $1.25 t-case is now $22.50 delivered to my door...nope, not likely....
wife found a few more cars at a garage sale, plus i got a tow truck and another '66 sub in the stash. i do have 2 t-cases left, no more big tires, so thinking a stock 4by build on the sub....maybe time to brush up on a few cars as well....
couple more vettes, a '56 and a blah-ferrari, euro trash....

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks!
actually i use pretty much whatever i can find if it's the color i like. my '66 panel i used paint from the '80's!....
for small details i just use Testors, Humbrol, and Model Master mostly. Tamiya paint is nice, but expensive up here...
for glueing i again use Testors and dollar store instant super glue. White glue is great for clear parts, dries clear if you get it where you should'nt.
i do have an airbrush, but being lazy (cleaning...) i rarely drag it out anymore, if i can find the color in a spray bomb, i'll go that route. i do have an affinity for Krylon flat or satin black for chassis 's. i have never had a paint job or chassis go wrong using Krylon. and if it's real old paint ('66 panel) instead of pushing it threw my airbrush, i'll use this detail gun i got....
pretty hard to go wrong with most materials out there now, i remember building models almost 50 yrs ago with c**p glue and lousy paint

new front rockers to go in, plus the drivers cab corner, found some bubbles on it
pass rocker is better shape than the drivers, but pass side of the body sure needed a lot of massaging, looking much straiter and less wavy...also started on the dents by the rear winda

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

ya, a little bit of work, but it's coming along nicely. one of the guys i work with is friends with one of the body guys doing the sheetmetal work on my crew. he was done there the other day and showed me a couple pics on his phone, front inner and outer rocker are all new and looking good, as is the pass rocker, cab corner is cut out but the new one is not in yet. only dent i could see left was in the roof. i'll prob go down there next sat and drop off my grille and take some pics...
while waiting for it i dragged out this sub i've had since last yr...

as parts are waaay to expensive right now, this will be pretty much box stock.
i have one 205 t-case left, so it will be 4by. dug threw the parts box, came up wit these goodyear tires that should look mostly period correct with the steelies and hubcaps. hood is not the color, just off my 1 ton for mock-up...

instead of just another sb, going to re-hash this '60 strait 6 into more of a '66 strait six. had to scrounge up some axles, will prob just use the diffs and make axle tubes

depending on when my crew gets back, could be a fast build (lol) or a slow build...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

how come might be selling your crew Dale?
i'm starting to get stoked about mine...
some sheet metal fitted in...all needs final welding
new inner and outer fr pass rocker, there was a soft spot on the rear rocker, so it got replaced, as did the cab corner. body is lookin' waaay straiter now, you can see what a mess it was and how it was all wavy

drivers is looking much nicer too. fr inner and outer rockers as well as a piece of floor. rear rocker was the same as the pass side so said the hay with it and replaced the outer, and the cab corner. have'nt seen the bottom of the cab this straight in many yrs....nothing like say Chromaholic's masterpiece, but good enough to haul the camper and atv trailer with..
