    I gotta stop acting like "breeder" and posting after having a few Oat Sodas.....:eek::D

    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.

  15. Hey guys,

    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 you go. They got kind of ugly when scaled down to size. Hope this helps. Maybe the single rear on both sides of car...???

    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.

    Love the T birds, Ill be watching this one for sure.
     
  26. 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!

  28. 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.
