Looks good to me! HRP
I'm liking where this is going.
nice, let's see some before pictures.
Wicked little Coupe
Bruce Might be Bias
Looks good from here. Only 20lbs of MIG wire to go!
This went in a much better direction than I was picturing.
Quick little back story while I burn up the last 30 minutes of work.
I use to own a 51 Chevy pick-up, Nice little truck I could hop in it and go anywhere!!
One weekend I'm sitting next to my truck at a car show Minding my own business . Some random dude steps over my display and introduces himself! Well things went down hill after that.
After about a years worth of hanging around with this random dude, watching him build this rotten, rusted out hunk of a thing that he called a 32 sedan. The bug bite happened.
Before I knew it my truck was gone! In-case I had not mentioned it before It was a nice truck!!!! Next thing I know I own a 34 Pick-up and A pile of parts that at one time or another belonged to 8 other cars. The whole time I'm thinking to myself " what in the hell have I done" !!!!!
A diamond in the rough. 350 lbs. of mig wire ! ? !
You made that from that pile of parts! Awesome work!! can't wait to see finished photos.
That random guy sounds awesome, and ruggedly handsome.
One mans' junk......... This is why I horde car stuff in the south 40 on the ranch. Never refuse a part or a car "thing" that's free
Nice work, enjoyed your little story on how you got the sickness too.
Look forward to watching how this turns out.
Sounds like a soup sandwich, but looks like a pile of badass!!!
There's a lot more there than a pile of rusty tin now
I'm doing similar: a failed coupster, cowl sides from another, coupe roof from yet another, cabriolet quarters, fordor doors, subrails pieced together from 3 cars... more parts to go. all horse traded, with no real out of pocket money... just other people's junk.
kinda fun, isn't it?
Ok, I'm following this one to see where it goes. That body already looks a lot better than the 31 Vic body i have .
Oh Lord.Another HAMB jigsaw puzzle.Looking good so far.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
Nice looking car to me. I would be proud.
Where the pics???

X3.............we want pics!!
Awe now Bruce!!!!
JB: The coupe really looks great!! And I see chicosuave had an identity change. Tim
