A Tale of Two Chevys
Posted by MikeFo on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 12:53 PM

So, I have twin sons, who although are fraternal, still sometimes exhibit the "twins" connection. Last Christmas, unbeknownst to each other, they each bought me 1969 Chevelle SS convertable models. As luck would have it, the models had a stock version and a custom version, so I decided to do both. The purple was done first and after the paint job did not come out as well as I would like, I tried to do better on the orange. Still have a little touch up work to do. The kit was difficult to work with, as you can see the purple one's windshield does not fit well on the sides and the custom features on the front and rear of the orange did not fit together well, but I made do. Also, the method for attaching the front wheels leaves them slanted out and somewhat loose. I hope you like the pics, even with my bad photo skills.

Looks good, Mike. I like the colours on both cars. It's cool seeing the stock & custom versions built and displayed together.

Very nice builds on the Chevelles and that color combination on the dark orange car is one I'd like to include into one of my builds. I built one of these convertibles from the 2014 Round 2 release and experienced difficulties with the glass installation. Seemed as if the thickness of the glass prevented it from being curved into the windshield frame properly.
