Fixing the right height on the Amt Mod Stocker Chevelle
« on: September 07, 2020, 11:03:46 AM »
This is a quick fix that uses what comes in the kit to get that stance down in the rear!

This is what it sits like if you assemble the chassis out of the box per instructions. Way too high in the rear.


You can do this straight up or after assembling it like I did.
Cut off the rear frame rails where they join the interior floor, and  cut off the small downward rods on the back of the upper rear frame, save them for the next step.


Glue those small round pieces you cut off the back of the upper frame rails as shown on the rear of the interior floor


Re-attach the frame rails directly to those round rods and angle the rear up to the upper frame rails and attach them there. I used a solder gun to gently 'meld" them together and then glued over the joints.


Sits much better, don't you think? This is a quick way to fix that without robbing a chassis from a different kit or fabricating a complete new rear clip.
 This is for the shelf builder, the detail builder won't even use this chassis at all, I know that.

Thanks so much for this tip. Like this car so much but wasn't smart enough to figure out what to do to make it an acceptable model. Now I need to come up with a better interior.

Great looking and a lot easier than the one I did using a NASCAR type of chassis...Keep the Tips coming

Easy quick way is to make it more like the Falcon, fill in behind the cage with a flat piece of plastic, the tarp looking piece that comes with the kit isn't really large enough.
