Default Ruloph the Red Nose Stain(less)deer

****DISCLAIMER****
NO '32 FORDS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS REINDEER.

This year I decided to make something that would go with the Model T sleigh I made last year. The full sleigh story is here.



At Hershey I came up with the idea of a reindeer made out of stainless trim.
There were stacks and stacks of body molding on the $1 tables. I bought in bulk.




I built a wireframe that would make the deer life size to fit the same proportions as the sleigh.



It is over 6 feet to the top of the antlers.


The antlers were made from lug wrenches. Thanks to Larry we got a unique 7 point rack.





I skinned the deer using the stainless I had acquired.



I was told the stainless came from Packards, 1960 Lincoln, 1949 Merc, 1952 Chevy, 1958 Corvette, Cadillac & others.
The nose is a '59 Caddy tail light, Hoofs are pistons. The tail is some parking light and the eyes are gas caps.




I will put the ears on this weekend.


Merry Christmas!
Bart

That is very cool. I was just thinking of your sleigh yesterday and hoping that we would get to see it again this year. Merry Christmas.
