  2. I find it amazing how your able to cut, grind, push, pull, tack, grind more, then weld again, grind again, sand & sand and come up with a real piece of ARTWORK here!
    You make it look easy...............
    Thanks for shraing.

  5. Thank you.

    Thanks Sakke.

    Hey Reno.She deserves to be treated like a lady and a Lady she will be:D
    Your Merc is coming along nicely too
     
  6. We are patiently waiting for updates Kenneth.
     
  7. Patient Kipp patient.
    Updates are coming in a near future.Have spend the last week welding, grinding, hammer an dolly, sanding, hammer an dolly, sanding again but it´s getting there roof is allmost done.Think you have seen enough of that so I´ll wait take pics untill it´s done.
     
  8. Ok.Here´s some new updates.Have the roof and doors all welded up and welds are smoothed,Still have to make a new skinn to fill the insert and will make it during the hollidays. I don´t have an english wheel my self so I will have to bring it over to a friend to have it done.Even got a new spring installed in front and it came down about 3 more inches and now she have the stance I was looking for. I just had to make a quick mock up with fenders and running board to get an over all wiev and to see the proportions better.Think I´m pleased with it as it is.

    Here it is tacked in and the door is also filled.Forgot to take pics when making the doors, was too excited getin back to this:)

    I've noticed you using a large adjustable wrench for bending some of the flanges,I do a similar method using Glaziers pliers.

    I really like the stance you've achieved and the chop is niiiiice !!

    Keep up the great work :)

  23. Thanks Kipp.I think this was a little bit easier than yours.Didn´t have to cut her up like a jig saw puzzle like you did.

    Thanks.

    Thanks a lot. About that door it´s not finnished yet but the gap is smaller further down.. There was so much job with it so I just freaked out and left it for a while,will go back at it when I´ve got some new inspiration. That is a really nice plier you have there, looking for similar ones over here but they´re not easy to find. A friend have two of them but he will not part from any one.I have one that´s wider and when folding long straight edges it works but when the fold curves it´s too wide.Think I will have to keep looking.Thanks for the input.
     
  24. Thanks Wayne.

    Very nice work Kenneth! Proud to be swedish when I see your work :) I'm interested in getting my hands on a pullmax. What machine should I look for? Like the idea to put it on wheels for small spaces? God jul på dig!


    Kind regards!
