Suppose you could get a resin body i remember some one doing one awhile ago,
Then use the 37 chev coupe kits chassis & shortin the wheel base & width to suit 34 chev !!!! :unsure: Il keep a eye & see what i can find !!!

Been Thinking Fella, I think you can make a 34 chev body from a 34 ford 5 window but will need a rear roof section from a 34 slammer roof to get the rear Qtr windows correct & the body lines are pretty much the same but will need to use some evergreen to had a extra body line nothing major , the leading edge of the door edge will need rescribing as well.... :unsure: O yer door hinges will need to be moved as 34 ford has suicide hinges .Il guess il have to make one as well now!!!.. :)))

Thanks cant wait to see how yours is doing. as for the seat..i scratch built the "frame" and hacked up the old kit seat for the pleated part.. still have to blend it in with the frame though. ill get some pics in a bit to show it better.(i based the idea for it from the big donkey resin one)

thanks! all i used is some acrylic hobby paint from the dollar store lol it works really well and is cheap but also needs to be sealed (would future work well on that?) I too have been slacking..the wheels kind of held me up but worth the wait!. i cant wait to see your progress and the new seat..been learning alot from you especially the weathering lol

I think Future would be fine to seal your weathering with ,Its near impossible to find in Oz these days!!! For your wheels get your self some black wash to bring out the detail, Dont forget to check out AK interactive on youtube mainly armour stuff some great weathering to use on ya jalopy builds or what ever !!!! its enamel base so it takes a bit to get use to ... i love the stuff all sorts of stuff from rust to oil & fuel stains to green slimy crape & mud effects, you will get some good ideas from there youtube videos i did .... :unsure: O yer what did you use to do your weatherin' Bud......
