Very nice work. Should look great!
its actualy pot metal
I gotta stop acting like "breeder" and posting after having a few Oat Sodas.....
The End piece in the pic is Pot Metal.
It's a piece that gives the Tbird Guys fits when trying to replace with a better one or get it Chromed "properly".
I'll stop by the Shop this week if I'm in the area.
Here we go this is what the car looks like as of right now...
Dirt hiding up in the front fender...
Gap filled between door and front fender...
Lil' Dave hard at work...
I got it cleaned up for the most part, what all did you want done to it?
Can't wait to see this one done. 'Birds done right kick ass- I know Gambino will do it right!
Oh yeah - this should be really good.
this is the pic id lie some photo shop help with would like to see frenched antnas in a few dif places
thanxs it takes a talented crew and we have one
Attached is a picture of the style of french antenna Alex would like to use on the '63. Alex was thinking about doing it on the rear quarter panel, like above the rear wheel. Alex would also like to see what it would look like in the front quarter panel as well though. If someone would have the time to "photochop" this car with these antennas it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a lot guys!
Here is what we are going with...
Here is another picture...
Once again thank you so much!
If you guys need better pictures, or pictures that are closer or farther let me know!
Here you go. They got kind of ugly when scaled down to size. Hope this helps. Maybe the single rear on both sides of car...???
Is this too weird for you? (EDIT - very hard to see - it´s coming out of the end of the swage line)
wow great ideas and thanks for sharing the how to 2s with us most builders would never do this. its why we respect you and your shop as we do.
I think they would look cool right behind the door.
I'm not worth a shit at photoshop, but I think it would look cool with one on each side of the car, on the horizontal plane like JamesD illustrated, except located at the rear lower quarter panel as the reveal sweeps up and terminates into the bumper.
It would make for easier access on the inside, and be a little different...
Looks pretty. You could get a nice dark purple roof to light purple floors with the paint.
i really like this one except they need to be fiiped or reversed so the high one is in front and the low one in back but in the exact same spot !
Love the T birds, Ill be watching this one for sure.
Thanks for all of your "photochopping" help. Alex likes the one were they are above the rear wheel. We just want the two antennas reversed. Thanks a lot!
Heres what the cowl looks like after Lil' Dave did his magic on it...
Are you going to strip the rest of that old paint?
It looks pretty thick...
Of course its whatever the customer is paying for. Just curious.
Dumb question maybe, but is there room for them right above the wheel? Gets pretty tight in there on some cars.
