I love this car. I knew it would win something at GNRS. Gongrats on a job well done man!
well done, i knew this car would be a hit when completed ...just perfect..congrats
It looks really good from here dude!
The next step is getting some test miles on this thing doing some tuning and start hitting some shows in the northwest! It was nice in SoCal cant wait for spring here.
just "SLAMMIN" the paint makes that car jump right out of the picture. Awesome!
I almost forgot to thank my bro in law Brad Hopcott for lending me his F250 super duty to pull the trailer which I also borrowed thanks man!
It was kool that you were able to take the car to GNRS. I enjoyed checking out the pics.
Hopefully some day I'll see it in person. Now enjoy the drive......
Congratulations, what a beautiful car, love the paint!
Looks pretty good to me! Bright red would be bad on a Custom like that. Gold sounds great! Hope to see it when it's all painted and shiney!!!!
Just noticed it's already painted. WILD RIDE!!!!!!
How about some better pic's?
I'll try to blow it up...
i like those pics with the palm trees. nice work.
Killer...absolutely Killer.........and i don't know what else to say!
Bob you rock ,it blowed up real good! Seriouly theres nothing more annoying than small pictures! How do you guys enlarge the pictures for posting ? Its probably a dumb question but Id like to know!
gene is the man
Beautiful car! I love the paint!
That's an amazing car, great job!!
Looks awesome. Metal work is sweet. My only gripe is that cam in the grill. Creative and could ok on a shitter, but not on what seems like it will be a sick Mag worthy custom...looks f-in amazing thou....far better than i could do....
You know when I saw the title of this thread I thought I was going to see a butt ugly cut up '52. There was absoutely no way I was prepared for what I saw!! You should have posted a warning! Jeez!! Stunning!!! I don't know what to say. A big tip o' the hat to you!!
Yea, me too, I'd like to know also.
bitchen looks great
That grill bar is sweet. It's something new. Nice work
Amazing work John, I can't wait to see it in person this spring/summer.
Some local cruz'in is in order.
I dont whant to built any more Kustom car´s after seing this.
Cos in my eys this is the most perfekt kustom ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not sure how I missed this thread until now...... but wow. Awesome vision, awesome build. And a fellow B.C.'er too.
I was wondering if you could do a bit of a rundown on how you did the door panels ? I have been thinking of doing something similar with high quality photocopies ( I fix color copiers for a living) of old little page magazines on the door panels of my 47 Ford. Thanks !
My wife and I do signs for a living so this was kind of up our alley. The images were scanned from Gene Windfields book which is out right now and they are pics from his personal collection. The images were placed in a collage using sign software ,sized for the door and side panel and then printed on a large format sign printer on 3M sign vinyl for wraps and then a clear laminate was installed on that to prevent fading and scratching , It was then installed on 1/8" pvc sign board cut to fit the door panel and wrapped over the edges, then installed on the door using 3M 2 sided foam tape for a clean look no screws!
Congratulations John, great to see you get the accolades you deserve! To all the rest of you, all of John's cars are first rate, and best of all, they get driven. We just need to get John, to add some more pics of the rest of them, to his profile album.
Got my July 2010 Rod & Custom mag today, congrats on the nice layout / article there.
Re: "then installed on the door using 3M 2 sided foam tape for a clean look no screws" - I had trouble with that stuff failing in the heat, maybe consider rare earth magnets? I got mine here:
