    first attempt at a reshell. w i p . actually gave all my bots and cons away in 94. started again with generations . hope you like. more pics. before pics. . had to do away with door wings . dont think the hinges fit under doors now . didn't like them anyways. i like the side doors better. cut the slides , glued the arms in. head and windshield only move now. rear bumper, drove out the pin , turned it upside down , put it back. cut the ends off. hacked the roof to nothing on a hinge. ballsockets for the feet..... didn't like this at all . maybe i shoulda cut more off the sockets and filled the whole nose . maybe next time

    Welcome aboard, I think it's looking good so far, and I can't wait to see Jazz. :) 

    Like, I'm by no means an expert on this, but there's some really good stuff in this forum to get ideas & help with, so don't feel like you've gotta invent the wheel all over again on your own, type of deal.

    This is exactly what I'm hoping to do myself. Please post more progress pics. I'm eager to see the guts of this project.

    This is great dude! That vintage-style 'Vette body really seems to work well with this mold. I'ill actually be reshelling Tracks soon too, but with a modern Corvette Z06 kit though. (You can see my concept thread from CD here if you want.) I might be asking you a few questions on how you got Tracks' arms to fit into the back of the new shell and stuff later if that's okay? Keep up the good work, I'll be waiting anxiously to see more update pics.

    Got this same kit on my bench as well. Found the kit at Kmart for like $5. Hopefully it'll work as a straight up re-shell.
