We thought about donig a car show fund raiser at the school next month
Let me know when if you do, I'll try and bring the Firebird. I doubt I get the Lincoln together before late summer, if by then.
Is your class making a T roadster or a tub/modified? If you want to make a tub, I have the back half of a 4 door T phaeton that I would happily donate to your class. It’s not in horrible shape, most of it is there, I can send you photos if you would like. Or not.
Sent from my iPhone using H.A.M.B.
Thanks for the offer. The T is a restoration
Using it to demo metal shaping and welding sheet metal
I did have plans for using it for patterns to possibly reproduce one in metal once it’s in primer.
The only issue when you donate to a school it’s no longer able to be street driven due to insurance issues.
i still don't have nothing done, life been getting in the way again. let us know about the show and if i'm not working i'll show up. if c.a.r.s. still has their shows at the mall this year they should start the first saturday of april.
bama that is why i quit going as well, been a few years since i went last. no way i could walk it this year, but the good knee is getting stronger.
We did an odd project with an old fridge. Our HVAC instructor asked us to do this fridge. Said we could use our imagination. It was a big rusty piece of junk but we did what we could. He collects Pepsi machines so we used that as a theme. I also thought we could learn a little hand painted sign work.
I know some of you guys hate fake patina but this is the best we could do with this thing. We were afraid to blast it because most of it would have disappeared
Anyway here it is. We are using this in competition as a project on sigh painting and will be displayed unfinished like this to demonstrate the process
The 7up is basically finished
The Pepsi is in the “patina” stage
The bottom of the flont door and Orange Crush side are in the design/layout stage
Our model T is in the figure out how everything fits stage. I hate wood!
Been a while but we haven’t done a lot of hamb friendly stuff lately.
Thought you might like this light surface rust removal we did.
This roof was sandblasted but had a lot of flash rust. We used diluted CLR with a scuffpad on a DA sander.
Did a very good job.
Students started assembling the 500 for the bus
Are you going to use a TH400 behind it?
Doing a little rust removal experiment
2 28oz CLR bottles and approximately 10 gallons of water.
This is the results of a 24 hour soak
