    In case you guys are ok with it I think it would be fun to make a tread about my on goin project.
    I started with a very bad American Graffiti copy made sometimes in the ´80s. Still it is a reel steel coupe......with loads of bondo =)
    The only thing left for the project is the body and window moldings, the rest went down to the trash-can.

    My plan is to build it fenderless with original style hood/hoodsides, thin exelcior comp-v tires.18" back and 17" up front. Don´t now what kind of wheels yet =(.
    Two tone classic solid paint.
    Now I have a sb chevy for it, I know that a lot of people dont like it but thats the way it is. Had the motor "on the shelf" with only 1500 miles . My goal is to get a 409 but that wont be until the car is done, first of all I better spend money to get the car together so I can drive it and have some fun. No matter what kind of motor.
    Most important for me is to get the right stance and a overall well build car =)

    First I started with a new chassie, am-stamping rails, frontend from S.A.C, new
    9" bellhousing and a firewall made in sweden.
    Bad pic =(

    If for some Strange reason I became a multi millionaire, i would buy up every steel 5W that has been turned into a clone of that shitful car, and undo the damage. Thankyou for helping rid the world of Milner Clones! you are a Good man.

    oh, and DONT two tone it!
    Theres this really dark colour that works well on early Fords...

    its called black.

    I measure it tomorrow, and I can also see if I can find some original door parts for you. Might have something lying around :)

    I'd have to agree with those who say that this is a great save. I like what you have done and are planning on doing with it.

    I have to disagree with Lowsquire though, I'm damn near as sick of black cars as I am of those Graffiti clones I like black as well as the next guy but you see photos of a Hamb related event and 70% of the vehicles there are black in one form or another.

    I agree, its ok with One Milner Coupe.
    Black rides are often awsome but I think it sometimes can be a little to many of them, dont know why but I just like two tone :)......here,s my "get to work moped" with a flipstyle gascap I fabricate.

    Would you guys measure the back too to see if it came down square or not? Be interesting to know.

    I was gonna say what he said... "Great Save" Two tone would prolly be alright as long as it's black with red pins... Anyway, can't wait to see what you do with it!!!

    For the rearend I first used these brackets to line up the housing position and just tack welds them, make it soooo much easyer to get the ladderbars,panard and coil over brackets in place.

    Master cylinder in place, my waterjet machine makes it easy :)
    Note that in case the mainbolt drops there is still a bracket that holds the pedal were it suposed to be.

    Just to make you feel better ;), your not alone with a body that needs some attention. I have spent loads of hours to get a new subframe/floor in my car and I still have many many hours to spend on the rest of it.
