    Been working on my 1928 Ford Coupe custom. Here are the 1959 Invicta inspired tail panel and grill insert I made this weekend. IMG_20210627_110258_346.jpg

    Made some parts today to change the lenses in the tail panel to beehive lenses.
    It's chopped 6" with a 1932 Ford front roof section on it. The roof is filled with a 1958 Ford hood.

    picked up a 1961 Chrysler Astrodome gauge cluster this weekend for my Model A. The lens was in rough shape, but after sanding with 2000, 3000 and buffing with PlastX it looks new. IMG_20210716_134627_553.jpg 20210716_112002.jpg IMG_20210716_134627_518.jpg

    started re-skinning the decklid on my Model A. The original had quite a bit of rust in it. I used the roof from a Chrysler Crossfire so the decklid has a peak in it. 20210711_173330.jpg

    I like it, it's got some early 60's show rod vibes to it.

    way cool, admire your eye for tasty mods. Not many custom cars of this age I like, but I love what you are doing. Kudos for a one-off original.
