    Today we started working on the rear bumper.
    I found an 1954 chevrolet front bumper from wich we used the corners.
    The middle section and ends are from the stock '50.
    This is a rough mockup...needs more detailing..:rolleyes:

    @ Mobart: no, it was not yours, I saw it also last week at Rosmalen. It was the one in the red primer, BareMetalBandit. KKF yep...still have to get exited about the new location, liked the old location too much I think

    that one is our clubmember niels's ride
    needs alot of sheetmetal redone, but i think it already started out as a rough car with lots of rust
    Bart's car was suprisingly solid!!
    and the quality of the bodywork that is done now is awesome!!

    Yeah I noticed it was a car from your friend. Why did he bought a car with that amount of work, instead of 'Barts way'? (buy a perfect car, so you have a clean start to customize) Not to judge anyone, just wondering why.
