    Done a few things on the Wagon project.Not much that shows....
    The electrical system is now completed and I made a trailer hitch,or what its called, so we can take our matching teardrop camper with us camping.
    Made all the wooden parts for the front doors.I'm not sure if they will fit ,though.Converted some Cadillac hubcaps and liked the look????
    When I started this project,I promised the girlfriend that I use two years on this car....thats October 2013.We'll see about that.Have to go to work in another week,next thursday, in the North-Sea.Hope the doors are nearly done then.....

    It appears your wonderful woodie has 4 doors. I appreciate that. 2door woodies just don't make sense unless there is a VW or Corvair engine hiding in the back.
     
  11. Amazing work.
     
  12. Very cool. We need more awesome cars in Norway..

    This the type of project I have been planning for a few years. I am a bodyman at work and a woodworker at home, so I've always wanted to combine the two. Looks great.

    Bravo, you saved an otherwise plain vanilla Ford and turned it into a work of art. Great car, great color choice, and impressive woodwork. I like your style!

    Nothing like ambition and taking on something as monumentous as that. Keep up the good work.

    Yes,Mr.Sawzall.I did the finger-joints with my bandsaw.I had a piece of original Ford wood with one finger-joint and used that to make a pattern in metal.5 minutes with the saw and 1-2 hours with some rough old metal files and I have a complete finger joint that fit like a glove.There are 8 finger-joint on this project,so far...Thanks for all comments!

    Finally had the time to put together one of the front doors.Its a bit tight now,but I think it will work out.Made some handles for the front doors too and even sill plates in brass.I want upholstery on the inside in the front and just wood in the rear,like a real woody.
    The workshop is so small,so its impossible to get any decent pics of the whole car......
    Been working on other people's projects and done a few things on my motorbike.
