Wow! Very impressive. Keep up the great work Steve.
Playing with a newly created 3d model based on the scan. I can try out anything I want now color wise or interior sheet metal
That's cool! I use Pro Engineer 3D CAD and that would take a while to model. 3D scanners take all the work out of it.
That's actually modeled over the scan. The scan is mesh data, but I actually surface modeled the whole body. Only took 45 minutes. But I do surface modeling everyday for work .
Another one saved from the crusher!
You sir, have a fine build going on there. Its good to see somebody save one of the old GM bodies.
That gold color with black outlines set up looks awesome.
i like both color choices! maybe the taupe a little better.
don't forget i have your next project here when your ready
Made some body mounts on my plasma table then roughed out the rear subrails. And then pulled the whole back end straight and aligned the quarters I built the best I could.
Looks damn good!
These off brand cars are getting scarce, the fact that you have saved 2 of them is quiet an accomplishment. Have a cold one on me,
Thanks guys. Started on a new inner structure for the pass door today
curved flanges are really fun. Seriously.
cheated and tacked it in a few spots where it should be 100% hemmed. But you'll never know..it helped me hold it in place without a full inner structure built.
Please Explain Fun !!
I will need to do something like this on my 30 Buick, how did you come up with your design?
Buttoned up the second door and started on the new roof section for the passenger side
Your an animal kid!
As per usual it looks great! That 3d model of the car body that you did also looks really nice. I like the black and gold color scheme the best.
Dang ... I'm going to have to start over with my reading ... to figure out what you HAVEN'T rebuilt on this body. Love it man.
Got the roof fit a bit better
Ditto here; another carcass brought back from the dead. And it can only be done with the high degree of metal-working skills that you possess.
removed the factory roof and found this nice surprise.
Hello new friend
Fixing the 6" behind the door at the same time
Then the parent metal got thin.
Cut a big hole
Started fixing. More work needed but better than what was there
It's always nice to find those little surprises, keep chipping away at it! Looking great!
Passenger side cowl top was pitted and shot. Solving that
This project continues to amaze.
Talk about commitment! Getting there.
Wow man, great workmanship
Decided to do the whole top while I'm in here.
Sure, why not?
Forming the cowl band
Looking great Steve. Keep up the good work.
Wow. I really enjoy following this!
Real nice to see other than the normal Ford cowl area.
