Projects 29 Fordor old paint and rust GONE!!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by JunkOSC, Mar 25, 2010.

  1. I'm must be getting old... my body hurts after that. I have a few areas still to address before I prime the old hot rod. I'm still up in the air about color. Original was black (top) on blue (lower), might go back to that. I'm thinking she'll have a shine to her... not flat black.

    I like the dropped axle out front. A true hot rod, nice build.
  8. Have to agree, nice proportions, and I like sbc in old fords.
    Is the panel below the below the back of the of the car on 4drs only. I saw one on a 31 sedan and really like the way it fills in that area, are they hard to find? I am building a 31 with fenders and would like to find one for my car.

    You have done a lot of work! It is looking good and I love the stance and front axle set up. The black and blue paint idea sounds good too, but that is always up to you... LOL... Keep up the excellent work and keep us updated....

    Looks good. Happy to see that the flat black era is coming to an end. It needs some shiny paint

    I never really thought about a 4 door sedan as a highboy but it looks good....
  13. Thanks all for the kind words... Its been a fun build and could not have done it with out the help from kind posters here on the HAMB. Thanks to all!! I still have a shit load of work to do but its getting there.

    That roll pan thing (not sure what you would call it?) I think is mordor only?? I never seen one on a two door, but that's not to say you couldn't put one on (a little tweeking)... I had to trim and shape the sides to make it look right; it originally bolted to the fender as well.
  14. I down loaded Photoshop so I could paint the hot rod. Here are a couple reds.
