Nice to see some more progress! pitty there's not much here!
I got no shortage of stuff to de-rust Joe ! I wanna play around with it this summer if I can, ive used vinegar for years but as you mentioned it will eat good metal as well...and spring steel, never put that in vinegar either lol!
Thanks eh! Doesn't feel like too much progress I just keep taking more apart !
You know its bad when the wife has to come out to the garage for vinegar
No worries Joe !
The antenna was one of the very first things done when I started patching the front clip ...that and the dash were going to be the ONLY custom work on the planned 4 door beater ! The hood ornament /badge might still happen, not something I can do myself though...I am probably gonna rework another hood like a 42 by removing the center portion but that will be awhile down the road! I love the pearl white too, seeing how I have yet to decide on a color it could happen someday !
Thanks ,my god I must have 3000 pics of this monstrosity but have never tried to put them all together ...right click save image as lol !
I did it with just the one hoist Finn, when I lifted it straight up by the b pillar it actually balanced really well !
Not pic wise , I traded an 80 Malibu bumper for a repairable 55 gas tank last weekend and have been puttering away on that , if it doesn't rain all weekend like they are calling for I will get a few things done this weekend I hope!
Came across this '41 Sedan Delivery with a cool nose piece...inspiration...
I cant see the pic, due to the tech issues right now, please repost it Nitro if it doesn't re appear!
Ryan got the trolls out of the system, so you should be able to see it now.
It's always good to see some progress on a project crazier than mine!
Man that things come a long way in the past...couple years!
OK, not sure if the thumbnail attachment issues are completely resolved, so here goes: '41 snozz...
You make me jealous with your Art Deco car .
I still have the Buick 38 waiting.
Have to finish the Rambler 66 mild kustom .
I ll steal many ideas from Zipo and you :
Small update....I killed the Mrs camera last month and no internet at home for awhile , but stuff has been moving forward, home made exhaust is done , manifolds repaired, ground ,blasted and painted, diff blasted and painted and new lowering blocks built, and I think I have the driveshaft worked out at $0 , I have to slide the diff ahead abit on the springs (ie new lowering blocks) so as long as there is no body interference that should be solved . Got a bunch of other little stuff done ,blasting and painting parts etc so thing are crawling forward ! I will get some pics up as soon as I can!
That's great about the progress! Sux about the other stuff.
I know how it goes. After 1 whole year.. I've FINALLY started back on the T.
NO, really...I have.
all i can say, subscribed ...
clicking thru the pages like it was car porn, wait it was ... had that car all exposed
i guess you can say. when rust sees you, they just pick themselves up and move
amazing work and i only knew one other fellow that could do about the same kind of work ... its just a work of art and hands down ...
any ideas on the tail lights ...??
keep up the great work
Sounds like great progress Steve, looking forward to the pics.
Hey Steve, I was just thinking of your car the other day and wondering how it was progressing. I'm guessing you may be driving it this summer?
Great metal work!
Keep it up, Steve. Yours is one of the few threads I enjoy revisiting again...and again...and again.
The sub concious mind is a powerful thing.
It will indeed act on something you tell it.
Like me carry my cup of coffee and saying don't spill it.
The mind acts on the last logical statement. eg "spill it"
And I did ...
Is the internet/pics working again Steve? We need pics! Great build thread.
That's great Joe! I hope to get the body back on the frame by sept ..please tell Fred I still intend to get the 64 in one piece! Too many goodies on it for me to use...if he still has the frame you mentioned I may be interested if things go well over the next couple of weeks...do you think he would sell it as a bare frame or just with the front end?
Thanks! For now the taillights will be motorcycle lights on the rear pan or bumper guards....subject to change though !
Thanks ! Any of you guys on facebook pm me and you can friend me on there I have been putting some pics up there from the phone..
I wish ! My goal is to have it move under its own power by xmas
Thanks Ricky I really appreciate the kind words!!
Haha the worst problem for me is that I seem to be too dumb to listen to that mind!
If you are on facebook pm me ,there are some pics on there...my pc died too but I haven't had time to look at it yet
JEEZE!!!! Now your computer died too????
This sounds like a bad country song.
Can anyone tell me why I can't see any of KoolKemp's pics. He mentioned he had pics on Face Book, but there's no "KoolKemp" there.
This is such a great thread but it's just not the same without pictures.
you need to look up my real name, pm me and I will give it to you!
What, that's not your real name?!
I thought his name was Rusty Ford...
Just a test with my phone...keeps telling me its not a valid image file ? I phone4
