That door skin came out really nice. Good to see you making progress!
Thanks! It’s getting there
You do really nice work. The inner and outer on the door came out great.
Great looking project, the finish line is in sight!
Thanks. Hoping to get it up and running soon. I still need to hunt down a few parts.
Watcha looking for?
Still need a set of 32 pedals and a steering column and box. Then just little stuff.
So I got the door metal finished to where I’m happy and started making and tacking in the rumble lid patch. Nice to have the garage doors open again! Also got a ‘32 pedal assembly and tons of little odds and ends. Still looking for a steering column and box if anyone has an f1 setup.
Pushed it outside for the first time in a while.
Getting there! Car looks good!
Couple more parts came in yesterday.
I got the rumble lid patch all finished up today.
...Someones getting Antsy...
Great Vintage look you have coming together there Kustom...
and you have one of those Vintage ambient Workshops to boot...
I’m definitely getting excited! Haha. Thank you, I’m having a lot of fun with this one.
So I’ve been finishing up all the welding and getting the doors opening and closing as they should with the handles and mechanisms installed. Tonight I finished cutting out the wood for the floor and started building a seat frame. Leather also came in for the seat. I may be getting a little ahead of myself there but I never get to do any upholstery work for myself so I can’t wait to do it.
Pulled a nice F1 column, box, and front shock mounts out of a junkyard the other day. Also got the seat frame finished up.
Working on getting the column fitted before I pull the body back off to finalize everything. It sure is tight. Using a model a flange on the f1 box.
More progress on the seat. Shaped all the foam today.
Wow, nice workmanship...
More progress. I got the headers tacked up and brought them over to a friends shop to be finished. Then I pulled the body back off to finish the chassis. Got the k legs fitted and bolted the pedal assembly in. Also started making the master cylinder bracket and k leg extensions. Everything seems to be fitting together nicely.
An I took a break from the chassis work to start sewing up some leather
Dang, really nice work man!
I see you have a Friendly's sign in front of your shop. Brings back memories of when I was stationed at Westover AFB back in the early 60's. They had great hamburgers and ate there all the time. Are they still around?
Thanks man! Friendlys is still around. Not that good anymore though.
That seat is going to look great!
Metal fab skills? Check
Sewing skills? Check
If you can sing you're a triple threat!
Looks killer man!
Damn that seat just beckons you to go park your ass on it, looks incredible...great build
