The Bench – 2008

Continuing the pace from 2007, I was able to finish several more projects.  After suffering a major set-back with the Chevy truck, I finally finished one of the more ambitious custom projects.  Looking back on it now, I would have loved to try a few different ideas.  The 1939 Chevy was another great project that resolved the fact that I never liked the way it turned out when I built it in 1996.  Not only did I clean up the look but I was able to use a flip-flop paint that I had bought years earlier.

Finished this year:

1966 GTO
Custom Chevy Truck
1939 Chevy Rework
S2000 #1

I also started several new kits.  The MKIII and MKIV Supra kits, EG Civic Hatch, 1932 Highboy, Fiat Abarth, VW Type 1 bus, 1970 Buick GSX and 1970 Chevelle.  I ended up shelving the Buick and the Chevelle after I realized I had too many projects in the works.  I also shelved the VW Bus after shaving the trim and roughing the body work since I really didn’t know where I wanted to go with the project.  I also started a clear racing hemi engine earlier in the year to work on something different.
