Okay boys and girls. Don't know if you remember or not but Jimmy Hervatin created a Hot Rod from a painting that Keith Weesner Painted called Emerald Tide. If you haven't seen that build here is a link to it. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=378992 You will be amazed. Well Jimmy toured several shows in it in 2010 along with his son and wife that I will just call WC (Wild Child). Just kiddin Deb. So he has decided to build another Hot Rod created by the Weez. It's a 51 F1 Ford Pickup called LIT UP. Keith is an accomplished artist and here's a link to his web site. http://www.keithweesner.com/ Check it out. Keith has a lot of talent. Here's what jimmy is going to create. LIT UP When Jimmy gets a notion to do something he pulls out all the stops and doesn't hold back on anything. This guy's got so much talent it's not funny. Jimmy does some searching and comes. up with a 51 Ford donor truck. Most guys look for the best one they can find but Jimmy can fix anything and I mean anything. Here's the truck. Next he pulls it apart and sandblast the cab. Then he decide's to chop the top and section the cab. The chop will be 5 1/2" in the back and 6" in the front. The section will be 1 1/2" in different area's of the mid section as you can tell by the pics. First he decides to section the cab. Then put's it back together. Then he chop's it and starts cutting. Since the truck has a severe chop the back window would be a mail slot so he only chop's the rear window area 3". Since the rear window is pretty wide it would look out of proportion so he narrows the window to 28" and then lowers the window to give it the right look. Before he finishes the rear window area he makes a wood buck and a new top on his owner built Yoder hammer. Here he does some finishing work on his planishing hammer. Then he welds it in Here's the finished top As a friend of mine (Lynn Pew) always says. Stay tooned for the updates.
