i still have a bit to go. i think i may go over my 3000 dollar budget haha
That's an impressive car, made by your own hands, and now I find it even more impressive by the amount you have spent, or rather, NOT SPENT putting this thing together.
Very, very, very cool car. You are truly a traditional rodder in the purest sense! Keep up the good work, and the pictures! I wanna see this thing go!
I like the build up...
effin sweet!, how many hours you think you have into the body so far?
very nice work, are you building bucks?
Very nice man. Don't worry so much about the buget. I have more than that in my car and don't have that much to look at. Well done!
very cool, what tools are you using to do your forming?
amazing..lts of talent there...id keep the 27 cowl myself...make something different..maybe some poeple at shows scratching their heads...
looks good there tugboat.. ;-)
haha i just added 20 bucks to my budget
yea i built bucks saved all the patterns but i honestly dont know for sure how close of a match up it is to a real model a. i measured a bunch of roadsters and a sedan but i actually never measured out a 28 coupe and still havent, i dont know anyone who has one. mostly everything is measured and made according to the measurements but a few things are by eye
That's really impressive, that you are able to keep it under budget like that. Well done!
some of my measurements
anyone have a 1928 or 29 coupe title for me?
I bow to the master!
the progress of the last week getting the flatty ready to start and finishing the roof
nice generator bracket huh?
i get tired just looking at the amount of work you've done up to this point. WHEW!!! this will give new meaning to the phrase HAMMERED COUPE. great job and keep up the good work.
wow. i hope i get to see this in person. great job so far.
You aint kidding. Hand made. You got some tallent!
man that is awsome! what tools are you using ? how are you shrinking?
i have a shrinker for most things but some things gotta be done with the hammer
but the english wheel shrinker stretcher and a break help out alot also a variety of hammers and dollies
If you ever have to find another job put these pictures in your resume. Any jackass can use a dictionary but damn few of us could do what you have done with this car. My hat is off to you.
What he says ^^^^^
Great work....if you lived in MS I'd share my garage with you.
