Update 5: the Hudson gets a splash of color...

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by hudsoncustom, Jun 30, 2008.

  1. Thanks again guys. I'm pretty happy with the result.

    52pickup - I don't have any other photos of the car at the moment. Once I get it wet sanded, buffed, and assembled, I'll throw a few more up.

  5. Looking great Keith , the color is dead on and looks wonderful. Sorry to hear you won't be making it to Billetproof ( What about the other Swindlers ?)

  8. Rob - I don't think any of the Swindlers are coming to Billetproof this year.

    Mika - Thanks, I wish you could be here to see the car...and take a ride. Someday...

  16. Picking the *right* color was paramount.

    FYI - wet sanding really sucks.

    That color can't be mixed up with another car looks very good . Wet sanding and buffing is harder then applying paint for sure .

    Hud, yes, wet sanding seems to take forever. And (unless somebody's come up with a power tool I don't know of) it all has to be done with sweat and elbow grease!

    Sorry if I missed it, but what are you using? Thousand grit, or even finer???

    Outstanding Keith, the car is a home run! I know you and Sam worked extra hard on 'er, and it shows! The color is dead on, just fantastic!!
    Sorry to hear you guys won't make it to Billetproof this year.....Damn:(
    - Dave
     
  22. Thanks Dave! Your car has been such an inspiration. I can't wait for you to see it. Perhaps if you have time, you should stop by on the way back from Billetproof this weekend. (I'm less than a mile off the freeway).

    Yup, and the HAMB should be -- and is -- about giving credit for trad, hard work. And THAT INCLUDES 2011 "interpretive" versions like this.:) It all goes to show that you can be TRAD and STILL bring something NEW to the table . . . to make people's jaws drop! :eek:

    TRADITIONAL rods/customs started out ROUGH after WWII, and they got more refined by the early '60s. Like FINE WINE, the concept just keeps getting sweeter, nowadays.:cool:

    I might add, guys can't build a nice car anymore for under a grand like the old days.:( BUT, the concept -- and the originals -- are safe anyway.:D

    THANKS again, Hud. MORE than money, it's obviously your brain, vision, sweat and PERSISTENCE that have made this Hudson a ONE-of-a-kind!:p How can it be TRAD AND NEW at the same time?


    Rhetorical question, I'd say. YOUR CAR answers it!
     
  28. Thanks for the kind words Jimi - brain, vision, sweat and persistence are all that I have. Skill is questionable, and money...well, everyone knows I don't have any of that. ha ha!

    Keith
     
  29. Finished up the buffing Friday night, and took it down to the cabin yesterday...

    Still have lots of little things to do, but the paint is done at least.
