GP35R Rhinoplasty 3

So I have been scared to do a nose job, but wow, it was REAL easy! 

The first thing I did was take a really sharp pencil to draw lines on the nos to have an idea for the area needed for the notch in the nose. I took a #62 bit and put it into my pin vice to start the hole.




I used a #11 Exacto Blade to hog out the hole, cutting carefully. I prefer Exacto due to their quality standards.




I constantly used the light package as a guide to make sure that I did not trim too much away. I used a special tool to smooth out the opening, I got 10 for $0.59 at the grocery store.  Guys, if you can’t figure it out….ask your wife and/or girlfriend(s)


I still need to putty the lights in, paint, install MV lenses and BLMA M/U hoses and sunshades plus remove the numbers. I also removed the foot boards like the SP did to 6300. I might leave the factory lettering.

    Don’t forget about the cab armrests, a bell, or headlight castings. Also, which coupler are you using? Maybe it’s the photo, but they look a little long.

      John, I had a NSN bell, and that little bugger went flying off somewhere, the armrests are a good idea, will need to order them. I have the MV lenses on order, Walthers is out of stock on the clear ones right now. As for the couplers, Microtrains 1015’s…

    LMAO!!!! I love that I am hitting the search engines, but this is funny…this is a spam reply to this post.

    Nasal surgery (Rhinoplasty Surgery), the most common form of plastic surgery practiced in America today, is a procedure that alters the framework of the nose, manipulating the bone and cartilage structure and the skin to improve the appearance of the nose. It can be used to change the overall appearance of the face from one where the focus of attention was placed on the nose to one where the attention is drawn away from the nose and towards the eyes, a more natural, pleasing occurrence. When the focus of attention is directed towards any other feature on the face other than the eyes, the face is said to be out of “harmony”. Rhinoplasty surgery, when performed correctly, improves the harmony of the facial features.’
