Projects My coupe project

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by hotroded, May 10, 2016.

  1. Last year I purchased this coupe from a guy on the hamb [​IMG].
    we negotiated for a few months he finally delivered it in February.
    I drove it for the season while making it road worth
    Adding roof,Windows and fixing things to make it a driver.

    Along the way I travel about 10,000 miles from new York to Kentucky

    I dismantled it on Thanksgiving

    [​IMG]to do body work and paint with the help of my close friend we pulled it apart
    [​IMG]
    So I chose no I was bribed to have it in prime for the Detroit Autorama

    But when I came back we got to painting it and what do you think now

  3. Well I like the coupe but those broads look a little too high maintenance for my taste

  9. Make one. You obviously have skills and it is just an insert.

    1/8x1/2 flat bar, some tube spacers and some all thread. you paint the spacers black, the sides of the flat bar whatever color you think is right and polish the leading edge. Done deal.

  11. My brother ;)

    I pulled the oil pump off my hawg yesterday, I was released by my orthopedic surgeon 2 weeks ago. I have just been finding one excuse or another to not do it. Problem is that my scoot is my daily transportation. :eek: :oops:

    Whatever you do will be a knock out, if I can go by what has already been done I can say with confidence that whatever you do will be a knockout. :cool:

    Looks great!! I am a fan of unchopped cars. I like the paint combo with the contrasting belt moldings.

    Your coupe looks great love the paint combo. Working on A coupe myself, currently being made shinny.
     
  15. In the words of the great gene winfield when asked how much to chop my coupe: start at 4" and go from there .I once had a sedan that was chopped heavy and channeled and found it very difficult to drive for more then 2 hours comfortably.[​IMG]
    I do alot of shows out of my zip code so I chose comfort instead of attitude.
    It is also very difficult to find the rite lightning to shoot pictures of this car . but in the next few months I'm sure I will find the proper backdrop and lighting somewhere in this great country

  16. I definitely like it a lot. Most of all I like that you are driving the wheels off of this Coupe.

  18. Cool little coupe, and mini bike hauler!....Moon discs would be a cool change up to emulate the Watson coupe.

    I like how the rear wheels and the wheel wells fit together properly now and of course the pretty paint

    Very nice. I, too, like the unchopped roof. Your car will stand out in a group of A's in more ways than one.
