Have a Merry Christmas!!!!
Thanks Moose. Merry Christmas to you and yours !!
Is any one able to convert this grey coupe into a rendering of my Ranchero project? I’d love to see it in the grey, raised slightly, and missing the bumper guards. Thanks much. It’s amazing what you photoshoppers can do.
I'm gonna do a quickie "facelift" on my roadster for next season, I'm sick of looking at it in gray primer. I'll be turning the whitewalls out on the same chrome wheels and I have two colors picked out for a scuff-n-shoot; a light metallic green (think Ricky Nelson roadster) and a metallic lavender. Both are inexpensive acrylic enamel from eBay. If you can, it would help to see them on the car before taking the leap. Thanks
Great looking project....
Wow! That is fantastic Moose. Thank you very much. Is it possible to chop the top and make the rear window line up with door glass. If not it’s no biggie. I really appreciate what you did.
Wow! Thank you so much. Looks great. That’s a big spark to keep me going.
If you chop the top, the tops of the door windows will be lowered, also. To make the top of the rear window match the door windows, you'd only have to resize the rear window by chopping it within the back panel.
Can anyone clean up Linda befor Christmas
Thanks Moose! The wife steadfastly says the green but I'm really leaning toward a purple, how about the jade green from this A panel and Chrysler's Plum Crazy. Thanks!
Here's a couple of quick ones...Should give you some idea of how it could look...
"Can anyone clean up Linda before Christmas"

...can someone change the yellow to red like the fenders?....orig. I was gonna paint the yellow parts red,...thanks
Gotta give the red a little more patina...
How about some flake silver paint on this? Picture sucks- car is in storage and right now there’s no room to get a full side shot ( I need maid service) Maybe some panels? Looking for a 60’s vibe—
Have some fun with it!

Guys did a great job but I think the yellow gives it more individuality/character
Maybe change the red? Seems to have more character when it's yellow.
Thanks guys,..that is so cool but I have no plans to change anything on the truck,..everyone who sees the truck really likes it as is,...but I just wondered what it'd look like all red,...the all yellow is cool too.
can someone give this one a haircut and fill the roof? and maybe swap out the 3x2 for dual quad? thanks
thanks, great job.
the tires appear to be the same size. what about a rubber rake? 7.50x16 on the rear and 6:00x16 for the front.
one last thing, ditch the lakes header. it's too dark to notice but my plans are for a dual quad Y block with rams horn exhaust manifolds with under car exhaust exiting between the door and rear wheel.
damn, you guys do nice work. i love this thread. thanks madfish and all who contribute to this thread.
now i can print this and show the guys at breaakfast tomorrow what's in my head.
