What a pain, decided to paint with airbrush rather than layers.
Please don´t do that. /\
Thanks for the finishing of the car,, but damn I do not like that back window, or shall I say lack of back window. Seemed like a good idea in my head
The problem is that you have a short-door coupe. A long-door would result in more window and less bulk behind it.
Exactly, it needs the door lengthened quite a long way to make it look good, maybe as much as 6"
I'm interested in the car but the wedge chop is a little bit of a turn off, I was thinking of ways to fix it but I guess a chop is a chop
Making it into a hardtop and adding a flowing quarter glass along with alengthened door would make it turn some heads. It would be a lot of work but I think it would look very good. Maybe one of the photoshop gurus would make those changes in it.
This is the best i can do in ms paint
That would be a bunch of work, but it does look damn good!
Maybe it would look better with a curved chrome post like the Mantranga Merc
(Dont think i spelt that right)
The one my buddy is building has the longer sedan doors and raised quarters.
Wow Moose, that makes Jim's Willys pop!
Can someone put a Racecar coming around the turn or passing my wife and I? Thank you!!
Having some fun with Jims Willys
How about a nice GT40 and Congrats...
Thank you so much! And thank you for making it a ford
Thanks moose. I'm needing a little inspiration. You did it.
Round Two for me here. Thinking Washington Blue (no two-tone), slight chop, slightly lower taildragger stance, skirts and Sombreros. Thanks in advance!
MannyK. Is that your car or are you dreaming about the one in the classifieds?
There are any number of variations of Washington Blue so if this is not close to what you are looking for give me an example and I'll try to duplicate it.
I think that Durant looks great in green, but the front looks so unfinished compared to the rest of the car. Everyone slaps Deuce shells on them, and I'm sure it would look great, but then it would just look like another Ford. Have you given any thought to something different... I'm thinking maybe a later Whippet shell? There was also a Moon/Dianna shell that was similar to the Deuce, but with concave sides on the top... just a thought....
Love it! No, that's just about the shade I was looking for. I'm definitely saving this picture for reference. Thank you Moose!
Dreaming about it in the classifieds. I'm in the market for a 46-48 ford, even a project like that. But I really don't like the chop much
Yeah. The window is too short in the front and the windshield is too tall.. Looks like a pretty good deal though.
OK Pshop Gurus, could you do me a big favor and make my Caddy look like it's doing a burn out and hanging a wheelie? This is the only pic I have of it with the front wheels off the ground. Imagine that...
OK Guys.....Please give a hand at having fun with this one.....Big and Little 5 Spokes....Radical Rake....and try to clean up the background. I'd be happy to see some one color (Deep Candy Red) Flames on this one....with and without. You know you guys are good.....Please give this one a shot.....Thank you......Centurion9
