  1. How about east coast treatment? Deep channel (4+inches), cycle fenders up front and rear.

    Photoshop help! Looking for ideas for a Carson top and a chopped version of my 41 olds. So ideas I like. My car is the blue one on the trailer. I like black with a white top maybe.

    If I'm not mistaken, the Christman brothers coupe used the front windshield and header from a '37 ford, hence the angled side windows on the coupe. I'm assuming, because of the heavy chop, they did this so they could see out the front windshield.

    Hello! Needing to have someone work their Photoshop magic on my latest adventure....I'm wanting to see what she'd look like with a '32 grille shell, lowered headlight bar, a top put back on it, a hood and '37, wide 5 wheel caps and maybe a '32 Ford style bumper up front...I know that's asking a lot so I very much appreciate it! I have a hard time on occasion, picturing this stuff in my head! I put two pics in as I wasn't sure which would be easier to work with..THANK YOU!!!!

    How about this version? Almost stock height windshield but adding a bunch of extra slope to the rear which they have a bit of from the factory. Also lowered a bunch in front, extended fins and a more swept back rear wheel opening. I didn't even turn this into a 2 door first, which is usually my signature move but on this car it kinda works.

    I've always liked these Ramblers, very overlooked as customs but they have a bit of attitude that I think the right cuts could really bring out.

    The '57-59 Rambler is arguably the first muscle car: "compact" body with a V8. Styling-wise there was lots of room inside. Outside, it look like a flashy taxi cab.
    I thought it might be interesting to look at a progression of ideas to "sleek it up.":
    1 Stock
    2 Lowered
    2a Lowered and Chopped
    3 Sectioned, Stock Roof
    4 Sectioned, Chopped Roof

    I had thought about doing a two-door convertible similar to this (nothing stopping me except a lack of talent... :rolleyes:). The Dagmars don't work for me, but neither does the stock grille/bumper set.

    Jeff J's wife recently purchased this '48 Studebaker Commander convertible to replace her wrecked '32 3-window. She was thinking of the 2003 Tahoe dark green metallic with candy green flames from the hood down to the back of the doors.

    It was suggested that Jeff J approach the good folks on this thread for some help. I thought I'd do some of the leg work for him!

    If it isn't too dark, maybe the restored car would be a good starting point.

    So, how would you turn this ride into a traditional Kustom, including his wife's paint ideas? Maybe some Watson-esque seaweed flames as an option? What color top? I'd love to give him a couple of versions to show her.

    Thanks in advance![​IMG][​IMG]

  24. A fellow HAMB member asked me to do a rendering of his 41 Ford as a custom/rod with no fenders
    While not for everyone if nothing else it's a pretty interesting concept..Looks like a cross between something Ed Roth and George Barris might have come up with.

    Looks like it needs 3" to 4" off the top to complete the transformation! It certainly is an interesting concept.
     
  26. Hey Dick does this look better????

  28. I'm building a '56 Ford Fairlane Club Sedan. It will be mostly gloss black, as in the one photo. I'd really appreciate it if someone could put some flames on it, under the stainless trim, like the one on the '57 in the other photo, but fogged from dark metallic purple to cobalt blue instead of the red/orange. Thanks in advance to anyone who'd like to help me out. I tried it with a copy of the '56 pic and colored pencils, but just couldn't get a good idea of what the finished product would look like. black 56 clubsedanprofile.jpg 57cc69fe5aacf2abf1f14538bdb0eb94.jpg
