Well, Doug has been working on this project on and off for a couple of months now - he is rebuilding an '89 kit for someone on this board. He will definitely be offering kits once the body is perfect. Now keep in mind - Doug got this body from a client who needed the body work done, and he is NOT simply remolding it. In fact, if you see the amount of work he is putting into making it as good as new, you'll be blown away. He will probably be done in a couple of months (he hasn't done much in the last month because he is working on several other projects simultaneously). As usual, the cost of his kits will be incredibly competitive, and the quality will be top notch. To see the build up log, click here:

It will be night and day when it is done. The thing is, most kit makers do not spend any time making the kit perfect before molding or after pulling a body. They leave that to the end user. This is nothing against any particular builder - they all do it. That is how this industry is, currently. However, people like Kevin and Doug are looking to CHANGE that.

Yeah I am sure he would. He just sends me lots of random pictures for his site, which I built for him and have been updating since the beginning at no charge. Kinda like Jack does for Jay, except Jay's site looks better. lol Anyways, the benefit of that is, he allows me to post and promote the pictures wherever I think it would be fitting. I will copy a few of them over here...

Doug then had to cut the body into lots of pieces and build a level jig to rebuild everything:

Finally, Doug is reassembling the pieces before doing some primer coats and heavy sanding. The body will be smooth as glass, symmetrical, and ACCURATE when it is done.









More progress will be posted as pictures come in. Remember, I only posted about half the pictures of this project that are located on his site - http://www.gothamcruisers.com . Check it out for more build pictures.
