like the dent, thats usually wheren they were since the body was so long. try making a "keyed" look on it, really trailer parkish, maybe some paintball spots or eggs... a website that makes replicas of junkyard cars...

http://www.junkyardjewels.com






just some ideas, and maybe not go with those rims, something more basic, and old looking.

That's a nifty site, gave some ideas.

As for the wheels, what's more basic and old then the Chevy Rally wheels? With a litte work, they now fit the bill.


Also 'weathered' Both bumpers and put a dent in the front one, and dirtied up the car some. Just some absolutely ****ty pics ATM, still working on the car and don't feel like piecing it together to a mock-up shot.



Ignore any texture that looks off in the pics, it's just the paint to make it look dirty...



Making a car look beat up is becoming more involved then making one look good... lol


edit:::: Nicer pics:







One "new" wheel atleast

do that last wheel in matte black, with a little bit of rust. but I do agree, one wheel needs to be different. great looking project, I like it a lot.

Nicely done. The keyed passenger side and bent front bumper corner really set it off. Oh, and the duct tape holding the trunk shut. Classic! Or is it keeping the bumper from falling off?

That looks really good and has some really cool details if you ever do another rusted style model you could look into this rust kit for models.
The whole kit is like 20 dollars but it looks pretty cool and looks great.

I don't see a hint of PMI here. I don't have monitors in my mufflers.


It's done! Here's 3 pics of it near-finished, gotta take it out today and take pics out side. Only difference between these and the car now is the bumper is glued on, lights (not real working, sadly couldn't easily do that right now), and some other little details.

Looks great Texan. You should put on some bumper stickers if at all possible.

I was going to, but my printer is FUBAR so that was a no-go. Later on I want to really finish this in painting all the details (logos, all trim, such and such) and light it up, and I'll do that in. Sadly I drilled the fake lights of the model out, only to find I didn't have all the headlight lenses from other models like I thought, so it's just a white painted piece of plastic for now lol

1966 Buick Wildcat, "Trailer Park Special". 401ci V8 producing an underrated 340HP through a set of dual-quad carbs. Muscle. Going Fast with Class, is a Buick's motto... except this old queen.

Mod list:
Extended chassis
Custom Tires
Camaro rims, "weathered"
Moded front suspension for more lift
Buick Wildcat body, rednecked to hell and back again.

Details about the body:
Weathered all around, including FADED paint, dirty tires, oily rims, and a car that hasn't seen a car wash since Reagen was President.
Dent on the rear driver's side fender, and paint swappin' marks
Bent front bumper, missing headlight with wires pokin' out
Cracked windshield
Keyed on the passenger side, ****ed off drunk maybe?
Etched in window sill for the driver's side windows
Bent Hood
Duct taped deck lid, is it holding the lid down or the Bumper on?
Trashbag and duct tape passenger window.
















Photos were shot on my porch, next to a brick wall and flower pot. Sets up the theme well, and the flower pot sorta reminds me of the corrugated steel siding used on low-buck buildings. (trailer homes)

Wow. Looks amazing, but the windows are too glossy to be on a peice of trailer trash. Maybe dirty them up and write "Wash me" on the rear windshield?

Is there supposed to be a lack of wheel nuts?
