As far as I got today. I can't wait to show everyone what I have planned for these!
Just remember you must have a drain to allow any water exit the mount, eg. rain or whenever one washes the vehicle. I suppose you don't get rain in Arizona.
Hidden touches.....sign of a true craftsmen.
Nice work and enjoy seeing what you've done next.
Thanks for sharing.
Very nice touch Ty as I have had to repair custom aerial mounts due to the lack of no where for the water to escape. Good work young man.
Still didn't get to finish... Maybe tomorrow.
Nice detail touch, I think I would have run them towards the back though. More on the line of the airflow sweeping them towards the rear.
they look, in line, with the antenna's that flow back. i like it! nice touch.
Just wait... I've got a plan. They are gonna be wild!
I believe that!
Or...just made them think it's dual antennas & install a Jacob's ladder instead....
It's the v shaped wires that an arc of electricity runs up in "Frankenstien"
Like a wet t shirt on a buxom woman. Fine from many angles. Looking good!
Also would have pointed them back... but ill wait to see your plan.
That is awesome!

Did you make those with sheet metal or Lead? can't wait to see it with an antennae sticking out of it.
All metal. I don't know how to lead. Hopefully I can finish them today. A lot more work than I thought...
Patently waiting .... not really can't wait to see where this is going Hobo Jim
Now that is the truth of all bodywork, especially when one is charging a hourly rate for your skill, " That little job took that long to create and you are wanting to charge me that much ?" Ty, you are doing a damn fine job on this car and I'm really enjoying your updates so thanks again for the pictures and your posts.
You've said this a couple times now. It sure doesn't seem to slow you down or stop you, though.
Looking awesome, can't wait to see the antenna's finished.
Love the ass on this now. I was a bit skeptical on the Chevy tails but you pulled it off with flair, well done! Patiently waiting to see what you have planned for the front.
I'm not sure everyone is ready for this... Remember while looking, that I don't want what everyone else is building or built. I want different and mine. I'm building a 60s inspired full custom, but with my take on it.
I know everyone faces their antennas the other way. But I wanted to accent the new (since sectioned) body hip line. And also tie in the beaks on the lights with the curve on the bottom. I also put a reverse curve in the shape going down. I haven't seen that done before.
I also put them going different angles. It's what I wanted. I got inspired by lowrider antennas.
*notice my cool antennas! Red plastic tipped 60s style!
I also know this car isn't for everyone. But I want to thank everyone for taking the to leave me a reply. I enjoy reading every one of them.
I LOVE how wild it's becoming! And not another like it in the world!
Yea man I dig it. Definitely one of a kind. I like the 60's style of it. Great craftsmanship. What did you use for the tips of those antennas?
Thanks! I found a company online that repops vintage antennas. These were made in the 60s (Nos ones are $500!)
Do you know your antennas are crooked?
I wanted to be the first that asked cause I think you're going to hear that one a lot, lol.
I really like it it really fits the build and I love the creativity definitely out of the box. Did you use round bar to form the shape?
keep on rockin. love all the work so far. superb job.
