Stephan H. That´s going to be a mean one when finished. I´m in.

Bill Newcomer Got the wheel tubs cut it but due to all the mismatched chassis parts, I am struggling with mocking it up. The front wheels have to be centered which locates the frame. The frame locates the floor pan and interior. The floor pan is too long needs to be cut to mate up with the rear wheel tub floor pan. I also still need to seriously modify the rear suspension. I just wish there was a way to temporarily glue stuff together for mock up. Masking tape isn't working very well.

Bill Newcomer Just sent an email to Keith Marks to request SS stripe kit(s) in custom colors.
17. March at 02:01:16
Bill Newcomer Keith just back to me already! My decals are in the pipeline :)

Bill Newcomer Made some progress this evening. Got the flashing removed and smoothed the edges of all the bodies. I also have tentatively picked out the wheels for each. The weather is getting nicer around here. I need to go through my paint inventory to finalize some colors.

Robert Hall Looking good ! Can't wait to see the showroom !

Bill Newcomer Went on the hunt today for Root Beer Brown Metallic paint for my '72 Heavy Chevy. First stop was a PPG automotive paint supply house. They will make a rattle can worth for me BUT.... $40 USD is too much. Ran around visiting 8-9 retail stores just to find that only ONE had a Gloss Brown Metallic. At $8, I'll give it a try. I also picked up a big can of red on sale for $3. I have selected Star Spangled Blue for my unpainted '70 SS and I am hoping I still have enough "Magazine Cover Yellow" for the El Camino. I have this weekend off so hopefully I can continue progress.

Bill Newcomer I spent a lot of time in the 1:1 of this car. NEVER got beat in a street race. A Chevelle with 4.88 rear gears ALMOST got him.

Stephan H. I totally share your cousins enthusiasm for late 60s cougars. That shape combined with the hidden headlights is my personal highlight when it comes to muscle car design (maybe with a 67 camaro RS next in line). Your model looks as good as the many others you present here. Nice overall build quality level . I also build a yellow eliminator from this kit few years ago:
1969 Cougar Eliminator (AMT/ERTL 6960, 1:25)
But I could not save the black stripes. Still it will be in the cabinet front row for good.

Bill Newcomer I too am a big fan of hidden headlights. Especially '68 Chargers and '69 Camaro RS

Robert Hall The 67 was the Crown Jewel of Cougars ! this is beautiful
