    Dam Kellan!! Some high fill primer is all you'll need, "you don' need no stinkin' bondo" !!!

    See ya next Thursday for our road trip. Char is making cookies but she said with the 3 of us in the car there might not be room for snacks. I told your dad this and he said " will leave clothes at home to make room rather than leave the food behind" ha ha.

    Its time to chop the top! We decided that we are going to chop the doors first and then the roof. So we made some patterns and then I made a wood buck so that I have something to chop the doors to. I then marked out my cuts. I made the cuts using a hack saw for a precise cut. I then made the back piece fit and tacked it on. I then used the extra door tops from my parts car for the front so that I didnt have to lengthen anything and there is 1 less seam.

    monday i cut the back window. I took 1 inch out below the window and the rest will come out of the window when I chop the top. last night I got the passenger door tacked together. Going to Hunnert Car pileup so there will be a break in the action for a little bit

    Hey Kellan, I see an extra seam to weld up on the passenger door that you didn't have on the driver's side, tops from the 4 door aren't long enough?

    that isnt a seam it was a slice I had to make to bring the curve around on the 4 door piece. The slice doesnt go all the way through. It is on the drivers door too, I just welded it up right away.

    Always happy to see you making progress , your quality of workmanship is impressive ... Perfect amount on the haircut too !
    A classic custom never actually looks chopped , just in proportion ...

    Tonight I cut the roof off. I then split the sheep metal at the ugly factory seam. I then took the inner frame work out of the skin and blasted it. I also cleaned the rest of the rust off of the inside of the skin.

    That's a lot of work, but you're doing it right. Your ride will be around 100 yrs from now.....Jim
     
  22. What a great build!
     
  23. Calm down Fomocokid, there's no reason to "blow your top". All car projects get frustrating from time to time. :)

    Lookin' good as always! I can't wait to see the finished top chop. And the side view mirror you purchased is fantastic! Love the thermometer!

    That's seriously incredible. I wish I had the time, skill, patience, know-how, ability, energy, tools and space to take an old ride to that level. But sadly, I'm lacking in pretty much all of those areas.
