So stoked to see this car getting some attention again. Gonna be killer. Love all your cars.
I am up to date now. I just re-read the whole thread and love this roadster. If you take it to Detroit Autorama I will be there to see it and I live in LA.
Pewsplace. ...it's registered. Stuff like brake lines, wiring and exhaust are probably going to be optional. I don't have much time so I am concentrating on making it look like something.
Looks real sweet Clark I hope to see it....
Good to see progress again.
Clark: I had a panel with surface rust like your side panels, laid a paper towell on it and poured on concentrated lemon juice. Let it sit for @20-30 minutes and it looked like new.
Timwhit. ...thanks I'll keep that in mid. The dash cleaned up easy, but the body does have a few bad spots
About bloody time!
Looking forward to seeing this in the real at Cobo.
It's not looking good for Detroit. ..this thing is fighting me. Got the top irons mounted. Trunk hinges are fighting me going to have to heat and bend them to get them right.
Fighting you, Hell, Id take a ass whoopen to have that car ..
Your work is beautiful Clark ..
Made the area the top is gonna sit in. Gotta primer the back sides and weld her in.
Nice work! Love the build keep posting man!
Just read the whole thread .man you sure are doing a sweet job. thanks for posting
Nice work, as usual.
Stewart.....see you in two weeks!? We'll have fish and chips!!!!
I'll be there, with "The apprentice", and about 80 kids.
Stewart. ..you've been busy!
Just like my coupe, just coz its old doesn't mean it's not fast .
Well the car is not going to Detroit..sucks!
I did get a good but done on the inner fender splash pans. I decided it was best to start over and make both sides at the same time. It would have been harder to duplicate the one I did a while back.
I had the hammer form already. But this time I have some better tools. I used an artificial knee on the end of the air hammer to help form the bubble. Then planished it and it came out great. I still have a lot to do but they're coming out pretty good. Not to mention I've got a lot less time in making the pair than I had making the single
Wow Clark! Great work!
Keep updates coming
I got my top bows and started playing with the top. Looks tall in the picture but looks just right in person. Had to raise the back bow just a little.
Also picked up some 17 inch wheels for my 750/17 goodyears. They need narrowed about 2 inches but will work perfect. Will be able to make a Goodyear wheel center that pops on and can also run a set of spyder caps
Love that top profile
Very very nice.
Man you do nice work Clark!
Fabulous work, and thank you for not using a Chevy engine.
