reviving a stalled project "T"
Posted by oddcarjon on Sunday, April 6, 2008 11:39 AM
While waiting for a good day to paint my Pontiac 421 project I decided to finish/ update the Tweedy Pie II I had started a few years ago...
...I am going to leave the old flat black paint, I think it adds a little character to this ride...

This is the kit's engine...I will change the induction, then wire it.

going to attempt a scratch-built interior...I want aluminum interior panels, so I figured I would use some card stock for templates, then cut the final pieces out of a soda can. This is a first attempt for me, any ideas are welcome and appreciatedSmile



Thanks for looking! Jon

Man, this thing looks sweet so far! Is this the "Tweedy Pie" kit? I've never heard of it, but sure wouldn't mind getting my hands on one!
Who makes it? Is it widely available?

Love the flat black look, and that stance is awesome!

It's the Revell Tweedy Pie 2 kit...mine is a re-issue from '99 I think, or at least around there....I've seen them at shows and flea markets, shouldn't be too hard to find one...
The wheels & tires I'm using are from my parts box...the kit used cycle-style fronts and super-wide rears...I'll get a couple pics

Nice "T", I'll be looking in to see how that aluminum tub works out...

I got a little frustrated with the fit of the aluminum panels, so to break it up a bit( no pun intended ) I started throwing some ideas around for alternative drivetrains...I was going to go with a Desoto Firedome Hemi, but decided on a Stovebolt Six from the parts box...

The longer drivetrain required a "slight" adjustment to the chassis, so I added a little to the front...

It's changing the look some, but I like it


....I thought for sure this time it would be a simple design change and a finish, oh well...

I like the "alternative" engine choice, keep on with it...
