I got another 68 Shelby kit in 2015 to rebuild and have just started to do a build of that kit with the frame from the AMT 67 Shelby. Since I have left overs from the new Shelby build I decided to see what I could do with this old one. Here are some "before" pictures of it taken back in 2011 before I removed the old paint.
Here it is with the new frame installed and a new shiny Testors' Revving Red with wet look clear paint.
I am going to use a Molotow pen over the head lights then do a smoke cover for them. I could not get the old grille/ bumper to fit so I'll run this without any grille in it. I might find some black mesh to put in that big opening though. I will probably use a body color 67 Bumper to cover the void and split that opening in half. That was the original plan with the front pan/grille.
Body colored rear bumper. The tail light panel is painted Tamiya TS-42 gun metal.
I am not sure what tires/wheels I'll be using as I only have one of the originals left. I have a set of black painted side pipes from the Monogram 66 Chevelle kit for it and I've found a new Pontiac Firebird rear wing for it as well. I also have the small chin spoiler to put back on it as well.
Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
