    I saw Mike post that. Knew it wouldn't last long.
  7. I'm sure you'll have it chopped and in shiny bare metal by this time next week! :D

    Lots of work, but you're the man to take it on. Planning on keeping this one?
  8. No doubt it will be real shiny soon with your skills ...

    It amazes what's still out there waiting to be resurrected.

    At least you've got a starting point. I know I'd love to have it.

    This should be good, I can't remember Flop starting with anything rusty, so do you blast first or build a body to blast? o_OBob

    Great score! impossible to find anything like that over here in Australia! Even better that it was the right price... cheap by the sounds of it!

    You're miles ahead of most of us because you don't have to hire an expert metal Man to resurrect it.
    Love watching your work and can't wait to see this one.

    If most of us bought that, we'd have to start ordering/replacing parts one at a time from Brookville, until we ended up with an all new Brookville body!
  21. It'll probably be done tomorrow!

    Yet another reason why I enjoy The HAMB so much, its always full of surprises. LAZZE scratch builds complete 34 3 window coupes, so anything is possible with the right skills and tools. Looking forward to this one !

    I just got a blown out Model A, I'd rather have what you got. It'll be a cool project.
  28. I did'nt think it was that bad untill I saw the right side. WOW now you got something to do over the summer.

    That's about the same shape as Mike's car (RCNUT here on the hamb) and his came out perfect.
