AMT 37 Chevy Gasser. Finished.
Posted by Johnt on Saturday, July 15, 2017 6:19 PM

I started working on this. I'm working on the stance. This is one of the cars featured in the new issue. I started it just in time.

I used different wheels than the Craigers in the kit, and I think I'll use a resin B&M shifter. Other than that it will be mostly box stock.

I'm not much for Chevys, but always had a thing for the 37. Should be cool.

I believe I'll follow along on this build because,

A) It's a gasser

B) I just bought this kit because it's a gasser.

And

C) It's a gasser. (Did I mention that?)

Thanks for the comments. I'm still working on getting good at using Foti, but here's a few update pictures. Changed the wheels out for more gasserey style wheels and got some color on.

Added a fire extingusher and tach to the interoir, and just got a B&M shifter to finish the interior.

It's looking real nice, Johnt. Where did you get that shifter? You said it's resin, but from where?

EDIT:

Oh, and count me in for another positive vote on those wheels. Nice!

Thanks for the praise on the wheels. I'm glad I changed them. I sprayed them with aluminum spray and that made the wheels.

I got them from Morgan Automotive Detail (MAD). Just under seven bucks for two not including shipping. Plus they got here fast.

Future Attraction also has a nice shifter that is part photoetched and part resin that also looked neat, but I haven't worked with photoetch before so I went with MAD,

Thanks. MAD is one of my bookmarked vendors. It took me a couple minutes, but I found the shifters on the Miscellaneous page. Got them bookmarked. You did a great job detailing yours. Hope I can do as well.

 Yes they do. I want to put an order together for them too.
 
I think I'll finish this one tomorrow. Then I can chose my next project. I had some problems with the decals in the kit, and I had to change plans a little, but I'm happy with what I used. They make it look more like a mid buck race team ran the car.
