  3. about a year 34rearview2_12small.JPG 34decklid11_13.jpg What's not shown is the roll bar, interior panels, fuel tank mounting, decklid hinges and even the decklid gutters, decklid latching and striker panel...a whole buncha stuff!
  4. It's a 1930. I'll mention that I "cheated" because I started with a nice car! It's a different feeling starting with such a clean car. The 2 previous off-frame vehicles I did were very rough - I feel I "saved" them. This one, I get the feeling that I "changed" it.
  5. Change is a good thing as it allows you to personalize it as you see fit . Two frame offs previous , you know my pain LOL ! Andy..

  20. my thread on the cabriolet build:

    on upper left is selected color.
    It is a variant of the original 1929 color. The hood is painted as four sample panels with slight variations of the original color, Andalusite Blue. It is a very dark purplish blue. The selected shade is a bit lighter and less purple.
  21. Very Nice Ford Coupe Asphalt Angel . So 10 months? Very nice and fast work . Andy..
  22. Thanks Andy
    But-well-not really that fast-it took me another 10 months from where I started to get it to where I could paint it(first pic) and another 14 months to color sand,polish and assemble-including the time at the trim shop.

  24. Whoa ! That 57 Bumper looks excellent on your car JBUHL1954 . And then is that a stock bar assembly ? They look good together. I would like to air my ride but the exchange on the dollar , shipping , brokerage fees , tax , double the price up here for us Canucks .

    Thanks man I appreciate it!! Ya the top bar and center bar are the stock 54!! I extended the cones back to fit around the fender and trimmed the bumper in to the fender also!! The center bar I cut the park lights off and shaped the bar to match the cones radius!! Then just did the same on the top bar!!
