    That's the most beautiful '35 I've ever seen and it's not even painted yet. But it seems like the owner should have bought a Packard - he thinks every part is a packard part! This is going to blow everyone away when it's done. Did you end up using the aluminum trunk lid? I didn't think you could use dis-similar metals together.

    Well, here's another thread I'll have to subscribe to...

    Yes I used the Bentley hood skin for the trunk, since the inner structure is alluminum too there won't be any electrolysis problem.
    For Brootal I used the bead roller and shrinker/stretcher to make that trunk structure.
    Romain thank you, but please change that avatar you got a much nicer car now.

    For the 4th time, I'm gonna try to post, we'll see how it goes...
    First, the hood sides, started from scratch but with the stock '35 louvers

    Yep, I'm a little bit obsessed with the gaps...
    Then the door, the skin made from scratch (a team effort of Troy and I)

    the trunk was finished too

    There is still plenty of small stuff to do, especially dents to fix, I f...ing hate that big one in the middle of the rear fender.
    Within the next 2 month the car should go to paint, finally after 2 years.
    The only thing I hate about this car is that it's not mine.

  19. Post an introduction in the intro forum, and then start a thread of your own - you will get an answer that way.:)

    Where in Germany are you?

    The car is not metal finished, I'm not that good, I can get close though but it is time and time is money, money that the customer don't have, he already exploded his budget to get the car of his dream and his budget can get stretch so much.

  24. Is there a word that means "wow" times a million? that's what I'm thinking right now.
     
  25. Absolutely incredible! "This car is not metal finished" he says. I would guess most body guys would love to get a car in that kind of shape. Cannot wait to see this done. It's a shame that there will be no more updates. Make sure you share your next projext with us!!!

    I have been watching this car from the very start and this tie's with Cole Foster's build in my book. I have been saving every pic you post and when I get started on my coupe will be pulling some of your work you have done on this car into mine. If my car turns out half as good as this one I will be able to die a happy man. thank you so much for all the updates that you have been doing on this build. Hopefully we can meet in person I have list as long as your arm of questions.


    Just plain breath taking.

    do you know the color as of yet and interior?
