Here is a slightly different take on a Jeep GC. I'm planning a two-tone paint job, big blingy wheels, and some cool detailing on the inside, not to mention a tuned up engine!
After messing up some major bodywork, I was extremely fortunate to get another complete Jeep builtup which allows me to get this project restarted! I'm going to keep the bodywork to a minimum and make it more like a factory "what-if" hot rod. Some parts will be coming from Revell's Dodge Magnum wagon kit - perhaps the Hemi?!
I am using the SRT wheels and tires from the Magnum kit and also have cut an opening for the tinted clear sunroof from the Magnum as well. I ground down the roof rails and the lower body cladding and slathered putty on them to make a smooth look more appropriate for an SRT version, had there been one back in the mid 90's. I will likely keep the engine stock though that is still undecided at this time. I'm still thinking of a two-tone paint job but it's not set in stone either. I aim to get it finished by the end of 2013 as a friend and coworker has been challenging me that the Jeep hasn't been worked on much in recent months and years. So, it's now front and center on my bench! Keep watching this space for more!
As of mid-June the body is now painted and polished out, the lighting is nearly finished, the exhaust needs to be finished and the rest of it needs to assembled and detailed. The plan is to hopefully have it finished by the end of June.
