    Andreas, I agree with Rik, seeing those shots of your car and Kent's is like a time warp. Looking forward to seeing your's with shine!! - Dave

    It give me so much inspiration and its so nice to know that the grille bar ended up on the right car. I really look forward to see the steps that will taken the upcoming winter!

    An old bw photo of the very same grille bar in place on my old -54, i was going to use a second grille bar to cut up to make it meet the bullets. Sold the car and the new owner finished it, color photo. He did not use the grille idea and sold the grille bar to Andreas...

    The Olds' quarters are a knockout...

    Gorgeous!

    Gorgeous! Beautiful metalwork with great proportions...I've enjoyed seeing this one come together. PS- how did you go about flattening the flare in the front of the Studey fender portions? Did you mig or gas weld most of it?

    Thanks for the reply...very helpful as my buddy and I are going to build a Buster Litton clone as well, but with a Carson Top...he has the Stude and Olds fender pieces sitting in storage. It's fantastic to see this car as well as Dave York's shoebox up in Canada carry on the spirit of the Buster Litton Ford.

    Great looking shoebox, love the roof. You're doing a great job. What did you do with the tail lite portions of the rear 1/4s that you cut off? If you still have them, PM me....
     
  24. Nicest shoebox I´ve ever seen.

    Oh cool:D Would be cool to line up our cars for a pic! Yours,Daves and mine.
    But theres some distance between us! USA/Canada/Sweden:)

    No! im going to keep it, atleast for a while!
    First have to finish it:D and then finish my 36 Roadster:D

    I had that in mind! Rik did some photoshoping for me!
    longer hood/ different length of fenders! I like this version best:)
    The Panoramic was Extreme:D
