Who said creativity is not alive and well on the HAMB.
This car is anything but homogenized.
DAM! You sure have my attention with your skills and design work......Front shocks are KILLER
Those engine mounts are so cool, nice to see something different.
thanks for the kind words guys. positive feed back is always a good motivator to push my self even further
I enjoy following this build here and on Instagram.
got everything back together to have the car displayed in my booth at Cincinnati cavalcade of customs. here is how it looked, it is now back at the shop and ready for more work
My wife and I stood and admired your work for about 10 minutes Friday afternoon at the Cincinnati show. I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to speak to you. I would like to have told you personally how nice I thought it looked. Here is a picture we took that day. It will be fun to see the finished car having seen the chassis.
Outstanding, that sbc looks great in there.
thanks for the kind words, make sure to say hey next time we cross paths
There is a lot of good here, but the headlight placement couldn't
be more right.
i have not updated this project in while. things were put on hold on my end for a couple months while i was dealing with preparing to move shops into our new location. didnt want to cut on the car to move it when it was in a good spot to be moved and sit for a little but while we got back up and running.
so now the fun starts. we started on the chop. 4.5 inches in the rear, and 4.125 in the front. leaning the posts back. we also used my signature curled relief cut in the rear corner to radially shrink the compound curve of the body to get everything to line back up. still lots more to do with the doors, hinges and cowl, but have it all tacked and working my way forward, welding and finishing as i go. here are some pics
more to come soon
Your good work is like MAGIC, beautiful !!!
Just bitchin work.
That's some nice metalwork.
Yes, very nice
Very nice work. The rear cut is unique and looks good.
nice work! Its cool to see you and your guys decked out with proper safety gear, sets a good example.
thanks to everyone for the feed back
Nice to see a quality build here. The swirl cut on the rear corners is unique. Please explain. Is it a tension relief?
the curl cut will radially shrink the compund curve of the top of the roof, which allows you to line the sheet metal back up as it should be. a lot of people will use multiple straight cuts which add more welding, grinding and hammer work. straight cuts will also leave a small knot at the top of the cut that will need a lot more blending work after welding
Very cool. Thanks for showing that.
Great Work,I'm hooked.
Your a Artist///////////////
It's really nice to see someone with this kind of fab talent share the process / parts so that others can consider using them in one form or another for their projects. I think I'd call it "raising the (spreader) bar! Beautiful work.
Sum bitch! Nice work fellas!
Looks like you have a lot more room in the new shop! Thanks for showing some of the steps in the chop process. I learn something every time you post and I appreciate you taking the time post your work.
That's some super schmick looking work there... Very nice.
