I'm speechless. Just amazing detail and craftsmanship. Great job Crafty.
Way to go Crafty, wonderful work you have done =)
Can't wait for the finished product...It'll be a stunner!
If I said " great work crafty" that would be understated greatly.
More fantastic work!
I know Im getting ahead of myself a bit for starting the bodywork but I got the quarter panel pretty much roughed in tonight, blocked it out and a shot alittle guide coat black THERES HOPE!!!! and I sold one of my new and improved Flying Anvel Spinitron sculptures today!
Hope you do a build thread on the house too. The car is looking great.
I am continually amazed with your talent! When do you ever sleep?
Its an option for 32's we currently don't have, looks like a 32 winter grille. I would buy one!!! Cheers Ian
got a couple hours in tonight and the rear valance panel and it's looking good...alot more sanding...filling...sanding is about to happen in the following weeks. Im going to build a engine test stand and get the nailhead all dialed so when it comes time it will ready to go!

I am digging the belly pan.....
thanks!! that was the hardest area for me to build on the car..it's a tough area to get right and this was what I finally came up with that I could live with.
here's another pic
this is just my opinion, but how about 6 rows of louvers in the belly pan?...3 on each side?
I wasn't sure what I was going to do in the center area that's why I only did 2 rows..so yes a third row would fill in out nicely now that the center is done.
hoping to get some time in on the deuce this afternoon!!
Worked on the finned backing plate covers over the weekend..pretty much ready to go now that I figured out the cut outs for the wheel cylinders/brake hoses. I will cast up a filler block for the unused square hole (same casting fit either side) and get these things on the website!
crafty you just keep raising the bar ! those backing plates are "cool" no pun intended !!
Yes that is killer....I wish I could copy and paste it on my coupe as easy as I do on my post!!!!!
one of my clients started to restore this and fell out of love with it years ago...he dropped it off yesteray and said do something with it..make it cool
looks cool to me so far
Love that !
Not traditional in any sense but those pictures reminded me of this. Cool nonetheless.
Crafty, Those backing plates are out of this world....Are you going to market them?
Good Morning fellow hambers for those that have asked about the backing plates they are ready to go, check out www.crafty-b.com for more info
Just checked out your website crafty, its now book marked for future purchases
Things are heating up!! I can certainly tell that the building season has kicked off. Im in the process of making up a new line of dash panels... so stay tuned. I have been hammering on the 53 F600 Grand Slam and have the chassis all mocked up and motor repostioned now to move on the the suspension.
Set of aircleaners I made for my Buddy Nic Hardy in Holland Mi.
Crafty, Sure do love that low slung F-600 ! Also like the air cleaners you made for your friend. Need to see if you could make something for my '29 "A" Modified. Like the tear drop look with wire mesh sides. My carbs are two one BBL Holley's off of early Econo vans.
Will check your web site on the new backing plates. Keep on coming up with these wonderful parts !
This thread needs to be up TOP! Your talent ,sir is simply amazing.Keep up the great work!
