I'm back at it, how about you?
Posted using the Full Custom H.A.M.B. App!
Just spent all my spare time over last two days reading this. Very cool stuff.
Would love to see your neighbours faces, when you get that Cad mill fired up.
Now you have a new fan, any chance of an update?
I can't believe it's been that long already!
Weren't you the First tech month winner?
w O w !!
A late joiner to your postings on the rusty 40 Ford coupe. I have read this front to back and back to front a few times. I really appreciate your time and effort to post your work, your methods and your ingenuity. I read the postings on the green 1940 Ford coupe as well from end to end. I have done some body repairs and paint work over the years to keep my cars on the road for the good of the family. Observing your work arounds and solutions to get results by avoiding a catalog solution is great.
Thank you for showing your good work and look forward to what ever direction you take next.
Yeah, Travis, what's up?
Hey Travis didn't you win a Tech Month Smackdown with this project?
You'd think by now this would be a runner,
but it's still a project.
It's gotten much smoother,
did almost all patch panels other than rear deck lid.
Looking back I'm trying to remember doing all this...
Pretty much the lower 4" was replaced all around.
I found a hood from Hop Up Justin,
and pied it a bit,
which meant stretching it out as well.
The amount of time I spent on the hood,
probably could have got the car running...
More soon! TP
TP...thanks for the update, Bro!! I love this thing but know you've been busy with a pile of other projects!! Keep the updates coming!!!! Looking good!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the update, love everything about this car.
Damn that's looking good! I'm jealous.
Welcome back. Kids have grown.
Well, we knew you were doing something on one of the cars. Welcome back TP!
Thanks for the update. I do check back often to see if you have posted anything.
What's taking you?
Hahaha.... Looking good!
Someone described this to me in a pm, "40, cad motor, headers through the hood, chopped, pie-cut hood" my first thought was "oh great, some fool ruined a '40" But man, it actually really works! Cool! I like it! Normally a 4" chop and laid back windshield on a '40 would be a huge mistake, but it really fits here. Very cool!
Cute kids too!
Wow, that sure slams the brakes on scrolling. Nice job. Bob
This is where I subscribed!!
Theres just one more thing this car needs to be absolutely PERFECT...
Wicked profile! Asshole neighbours!
Zibo,,,,,,love this car
You have SO nailed the proportions/style/attitude of this coupe! How 'bout a quarterly update? Lots o pix, please!
Update! I sent a couple pics of your car to the guy I bought my '39 off, but I havent showed him what you started with yet! That should shake him up!!
Sooooo long ago I had to go through the whole thread to refresh my memory
Sent from my LG-LS980 using H.A.M.B. mobile app

Those two cars with the same address is really cool. I never get tired of looking at them. The kids are getting big.
