Projects F-1 finally in paint

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by charleyw, Oct 6, 2018.

  1. thanks fer the info/pics,...very nice chop (how much?) the whole thing and drilled bumper,..if it were mine I'd do the grille/area and bumper argent silver for some contrast, but it's your truck, very nice indeed.

  2. Thanks, Chop is about 3", just used duct tape to mark it.
    Thought about the argent, decided I could do that later if I didn't like the monochrome look. I also have steelies and caps if I go with Argent or chrome grille.

    Very nice! Looks good to me just the way it sits. I think the combination of the stance, the wheels, the chop, and the color is a great combination.

  7. Charley, I've followed your build progress for a few years and I think you made a great choice (I'm sorta partial to dark green F1s too)! You can show that off anywhere. Congrats! -Ken

    Got me a 50F1 also. I painted mine when I was still in my mid 60's, what a chore, almost did me in. Got it completed and running by 70. Your truck looks fantastic. Now take it out and enjoy it.
