X2! Love the shape.
Thanks guys apreciate the love
That chop looks great,glad to see more people are building pre-war MoPars as they got lots of custom potential.Badass car.
I see there has been a debate over the Ribs on the fenders. I say extend the Ribs into the rear fender skirts. A little photo chopping and you'll see how far and what pattern looks best.
Thanks Blind Ill try that
merc rear window section closer shot of work rough but got the shape I wanted a little hammer and dolly and a little mud having another 1937 Plymouth roof helped a lot to find some curved pieces for the sail panels since I do not own a English wheel
nice work, profile looks great.
A fellow hamber Photoshopped this for me with out the fenders ribs great to see this gets me inspired the get out to the garage and finish this car love the lines on the car certain years of mopars make some nice customs the ass goes forever especially since I move the catwalk section 5 inches i am so stoked to see this sorry guys I like the car without the fenders ribs love that they are signature mo par marks but to me the just clutter up the look trying to stay very simple
I really like the look of the slanted doorposts better than the hardtop look! great job!
hopfuly I will be on the road this summer
Hey man, do you still have the rear window?
hey Plymouth brothers... I am trying to get my Plym done before I get home from Assghanistan next month... I need 2 parts, a hood and some rear bumber brackets. The car and my paint and body guy are in Cali. The hood flew off on transport and of course they told me to go f*ck myself, they are not responsible for damage. Can anyone help or point me in a direction? I have scoured the net, but not being in country, I can't scour the junk yards... PM me, thanks...
Very nice, keep at it.
Nice car,but put it together how you want it...
Finlay roof is done no more shaping and blocking learned a good lesson never buy the cheap bondo takes for ever for shaping but really happy with the shaped glad I redid the back to get the flow I wanted
Looks cool! Consider putting a radius on the on and only sharp corner on the doors. I think that will make it look even better!
I did origonaly round the tops of the door for some reason I did not care for them to much and put them back
looking fantastic...and agree on rounding the doors. Great car!
A buddy's friend did this one for me
Great pic zombie77. Love the color too!
Love that pic, very nice.
Wow that looks great! Ever since I built my first AMT 41 Plymouth in 1/25 scale when I was about 12, I have wanted one of these, they make such beautiful customs!!
Nice great job... I like the way the build is going I will keeping up with this one.
Great job with the car.The chop looks good and I agree that it looks much better with some curves out back.Way to build with the tools you have and the vision.Im the same way..Will be keeping up on the build.
nice week end to work on the car had to go backwards got inpatient and primered roof when the rain gutters were cut up and warped and grinded thru been trying to repair them all week but rain gutter are very hard to repair the whole rain gutters are in bad shape
my freind i got the car from was turning the car into a hard top and welded the tops ofthe doors to the rain gutter when I got the car the doors and pillars were cut into over 20 pieces had to rechopped the roof 1 more inch in the rear and 1/2 inch in the front and play puzzle to put the post and doors back togheter not saying it did not look good it looked killer but I relly like the slanted post 5 windows look.I dont like the look with no rain gutters espeacialy the rear window today i am going to cut out the rain gutter and put some 1/4 round rod in relly wanted to save the rain gutter to keep that origanal look but could not save the rain gutters
my little girl want to work on daddys car too told her no i dont want you to get dirty but everytime i turned a round she was sanding or trying to do something with a wrench or screwdriver
