    Here is the deck lid I made for my 31 Plymouth. Came out well enough to sell another. I used a shrinker/stretcher to fit it to the new wood frame I built. Once fitted, I seam sealed it to the frame and secured it with a couple inside corner panels and a bottom plate to secure.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  3. Wasn't too bad, did it at the college and I just had to pay the school for the printing.
    Check the thread out there's lots of good stuff in there.

    I've got the number of a good casting facility, I'll be calling them soon.

    I know this is a car forum. But here are few things I fabbed for a motorcycle (although it does have a car engine for power). I made a fuel tank and weed burner zoomies for it, among other things. Thanks to everyone for sharing. It's good to know there are still imaginations and talents being used in this cookie cutter world. CUSTOM TANK (6).jpg HEADER (1).jpg

    And here are some engine mounts I made for a big block Ford in a '32. I extended the mounts forward on the block to give more clearance for the headers. HOWARD BARTON'S '32 FORD (37).jpg HOWARD BARTON'S '32 FORD (38).jpg HOWARD BARTON'S '32 FORD (46).jpg

    A very interesting and cool topic. Fabrication.. Back in the early 60,s in a small town we were already working on old cars we bought from the junk yard for 50 bucks. Then went back and bought parts and actually built a running jalopy. We could wonder around the junk yards all day and never get yelled at .Out cars were not good or safe at all but who cared. There was a a machine shop back then on every corner and foundries not like today...I always respected & marveled at the older guys who could fabricate,work a mill or lathe or whatever. They were my heros and still are to this day.
    At the car shows I always zero in on the made cars from scratch, cars made in someones ( garage at home.) for those of you that have such ability to ( fabricate) you are the man !
