Right on Eric, keep it up. Are you going to have to do any work to the rear window garnish? Whats next on the list?
Thanks Scott. Next on the list is to actually search for rear window garnish moulding.....it was never with the car. Some modification of this moulding will more than likely be required as the whole metal work there is completely new, even though the basic shape has been retained. So if you know anyone with a spare moulding......
Nice progress as usual. I like the fact that you decided to keep the vent windows, good choice! There are too many chopped cars out there that have deleted them. It just adds a nice touch to an already awesome car.
Awesome work so far, very impressive.
Holy crap! What a build! I'm lovin it, man!
Do you know if it's the same as a 48 business coupe, if it is, I've got one that I'll send you for the cost of shipping.
Thank you Smokeybear! From what I can see after checking out a lot of pics on the internet, it should fit without any problems. Thank you very much for this generous and Hamb spirited gesture, I truly appreciate it. You've got to love the Hamb! PM sent.
Thank you once again Smokeybear!
Great Hamb spirit there Smokeybear, awesome.
Thank you hemi v8. Deleting the vent windows would be too easy....
Thank you Car.
Thank you Saxman, good to hear your enjoying the build as much as I am!
Hey Eric, you're doing it step by step, piece by piece, one detail follows the next. building a car with a lotta patience seems to be layed in our nature.. have a nice weekend, yours, Carsten
I consider it a privilege to be part of this board and only hope this helps you get this beautiful creation to completion. You've been an inspiration to the board. Keep it up.
Here are a couple of terrible cell phone pics. It is for flat glass. So I think it will fit too.
oh yeah, you hit the 300,000 view mark by the way lol. Keep it up dude.
Thank you Carsten!
Thank you for the great words and the kind hearted gift.
I just realized that too. 300k views, perhaps I'm doing something right.
I tend to refer to UPS as 'oops'...
The car is looking great!
Got back late last night from the Dutch Hambers meeting. We all first met up at Art.Flame's place for coffee, then it was off to the palace for a photo shoot. (the professional pics will be posted when I get them, I quickly snapped the ones below.) After the shoot, it was off to HarryStepvan's place for the beer and bbq. It was great to meet a lot of new guys and hang out. I certainly had an awesome time with my likeminded (new) friends.
Totally OUTRAGEOUS.Keep up the good work.Subscribing.
Good luck.Have fun. Be safe.
Man I love that second picture, it will make a great screensaver! What is that place?
Thank you woodbutcher, glad you like the thread!
It's one of the queen's palaces, this one is situated in Apeldoorn.
Here's one more pic from yesterday.
Here are a few more pics from yesterday. (incl a tall blonde guy in the background.) There are more pics on the "Dutch Hambers" thread, from where I copied these.(hope you don't mind DoubleGoggles!)
Keep up the good work mate !
Nice meeting you Erik, and if you need a hand sometimes... you know it!
It was good meeting you too and I'm glad you got home safely! Thanks for the helping offer.
it was nice to meet you.
see you next time and good luck with your build.
that looks like a lot of fun Eric, glad you had a good time
Thank you Jurgen, it was certainly good seeing the persons behind the avatars!
Had a great time Scott. I'm going to be working on the car again this week, time permitting....
Started on the rear deck lid. The PO (or whoever did it) did not take the time to do it properly.......Started on the lower left side, cut the old piece and got it in the right position. Then tacked it, hammered it and welded it up, one inch at a time to prevent it from warping. Then did the ajoining piece and repeated the same process. Got the grinder out and smoothed it all. Going to work on the bottom right tomorrow and work my way to the center.
From what you can see from the first pic, I have a long way to go. Then it's on to the inner part, requiring a lot of work as well. Don't you just love it!
