    That's cool but how come it's not out of focus like the photoshop version? :)

    This is a request on behalf of HAMB-er "chopolds", who is currently building a '56 Olds-mad.

    I was wondering if one of you artistes could show us what this creation might look like when finished with that year's Olds 98 trim.

    I was thinking it might be nice to create a stainless filler piece to fill the triangular "cove" at the base of the B pillar. I don't know if it would look better smooth or with vertical as l flutes. Or maybe it isn't needed at all...

    Here are a couple of source images I found online (not his car) plus a detail shot of where the B pillar meets the beltline. Sorry the angle of the cars isn't quite perfect.

    You'll need to ditch the continental kit and reposition the rear bumper, and I think an altitude adjustment is in order. I don't recall if he has a color in mind (single- or two-tone).

    Thanks in advance!

    Operator error (on my part)! Which is just as well because I found a better image for the roof. If you can find a better image of the Olds for this exercise, by all means, use it. Screenshot_20190504-235651_Chrome.jpeg 20190505_081750.jpeg Screenshot_20190505-000341.jpeg

    Brilliant, Moose! I hope he'll like it as much as I do. If he comes back with a wish list of alterations, I'll let you know, but this is a helluva start!

    Here's chopolds response:

    "He's got a real talent for Photoshop! Thanks for requesting it! It looks great! Not sure if it's got the 1 1/2" chop done to it? hard to tell. Mine will also have factory type skirts (found a set of NOS Foxcraft's at Carlisle), wide whites, and 55 Olds caps.

    Considering colors, since I like to paint, I've got a whole slew of possibilities! Dark Purple and Lilac Pearl, Pale Pink Pearl and (Candy?) Burgundy, Turquoise and black, Copper metallic and cream. Want a 50's type vibe with the colors, but using modern versions."

    I, for one, am against the chop on this particular build, but it's his car.

    Dreaming about a future project. Can you take a couple inches out of the roof, lower the fins a couple inches, and maybe see what a skirt that flows with the lower body line looks like? Very much appreciated as this will be a large job to tackle and I need the motivation to muster the courage to start morphing my two cars to build one more 55 Caddy wagon. [​IMG]

    Awesome. May have to go just a tad more subtle on the chop to get things to where it is in my minds eye. It gets a little too long looking this way. Or maybe no chop at all. I don’t know. This definitely gets me thinking though. Now I just need to get the two or three cars between getting it in the shop and where I’m at now done.
     
  11. OK another version...

    I think the biggest issue with this study I had would be the disturbance of the flow on the B-pillar and the bullet shape side trim...

  18. I totally agree with this. The side trim really jars against the pillar.

  19. I did it the way that I depicted because that's what the guy who is building it in the real world wanted to see. Personal I don't think it looks too bad at all.

    Here's my take on the 1956 Olds 98 Nomad.
    I replaced the '56 98 trim with modified 1955 Olds 98 stainless. I moved the trim rearward to coordinate with Nomad B-pillar. This keeps the Oldsmobile theme going and plays off against the sweetheart dip, too.

    Here's an alternate color combo - Lilac and Lavender, a bit more custom.

    A little off the top.
    I do know it's not a Olds , I just thought I saw something earlier about mention of a chopped top. 15578831821383756313372278653881.jpeg

    Can somebody please help me out with a couple of photo shop pic's of a new half hood for my T project.
    The air cleaners will protrude thru the hood.
    I am having trouble loading pic's but will retry in the next post.

    Try again...
    The thermostat housings will clear, but there will need to be a cut out for the radiator water recovery tube.
    I'm not familiar with this photo shop process, so have offered an array of pic's to choose from that may best work.

    Thanks.
