    Hey Lynn, what a great looking build. I don't know how I missed seeing it all this time - looking forward to seeing progress when you get a chance.
    Beautiful work.
    Thanks for showing us.

    LOL, mocking up the rear to get the front to fit right is something I would do! Looks great, you just need the right license frame for that plate...

  10. Ahhhh, back at it - all's right with the world once more! :D

    Looking forward to watching your progress on this one once again.

    This surpasses all my '36 dreams! I used to pet Tommy the Greek's Phaeton, settled for chopping my '36 Three window...

    ...THAT cool.

    The original stance for this thing RULED!

    Agree.... so I took the liberty and slightly photoshopped Jimmy's wonderful original illustration.
    I guess my version is still a little to low. But I did not wanted to get to radical away from the original illustration.

    I could not find a suitable custom hubcap in one of Jimmy's other illustrations that I could use (I think it needs single bar flipper hubcaps or something similar). So I just enlarged the hubcaps from the original illustration to make "full" hubcaps.


    And with skirts...

    Kustom vs street rod. My 2 cents. Love this build!
  26. Sorry no progress on the car. I have been working on other car projects and my home lately...
  27. Well, I find myself looking through your thread about the So Cal Plating inspired 36 and find I must be truthful about your version of the car. I can't honestly say that I like it. No I don't like it, I absolutely freakin' LOVE it!
    Can't wait to see you get back on the build, seeing this car finished will be a 'fair dinkum' treat, keep up the awesome work mate!

  28. Well shit. Made it to the end. No more posts to read........
    Sooooooo, you need some help? I need a bus ticket. Can't help much on the metal fab....but I can work on your house !! Whatever it see you back on your inspired Special.
    You are building an amazing car...... and I wish I had something more original and inspiring then what has been said.....but you have heard it all. Keep it up !
    As gorgeous as yours is turning out....I still can't believe the original just disappeared. It probably has no Carson top, and someone is cruising around with what they think is a Duvall screened Phaeton of sorts.....or maybe it is just plain gone. We will never know......but in posterity....your version is just as inspiring, and beautiful.
    Thanks for the posts to date. I hope you finish what you started soon enough. Take care sir !
