Nice looking work guys!
Here's a couple of pictures of my rust bucket when I first started on it 3 yrs ago, the I grinded her down to the bare metal, and a some pixs. of where she is now. I chopped it 5 and 8 inches, shaved everything except the deck lid hinges, and just recently pie sectioned the hood and rear lid.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
what year and make is this? thats friggin sweet. I love how long and elegant it is.
Here are a couple of mine before and after.
some inspiring turn-arounds for sure. I look forward to being able to post an "after" pic of my m-37 build.
It's not mine, but I'm going to stick my neck out and guess that this is a 1927 Dodge Brothers
Winner winner chicken Dinner!!
This is by no means the only kool one in the bunch, But my god! It is deffinatly kool my friend! You did a great job!
Well that looks rite, thanks!
Nice work 59Flamezz.
Thanks man! Sorry for the small pic's, I try to get some bigger ones up.
My, as known to alot of you, 1953 Chevy. found as a wagon behind a barn for 15 years.
After 7 months of beeing in the garage she looked like this!
Two winters later it was time for a new "paint job"
And this is what she looks like now 15 years later.
my 28 to a 32
Hey, thanks for looking!
And I do have a build thread on here...
I will try to post some details on the roof for ya!
Oh man...I have these same pics in a bunch of these same threads...
I'm no Jim Sibley, but I have drug home some real shit piles over the years..
Here is the last one..
Here is the current project..
Lots of junk in the lower 8 inches..
Floor was fucked..
But really, she wasn't that bad..here she is a week ago. ALMOST done. Lots of shiny parts to put back on, but getting there..
Hey flamedabone, you are brave man taking on some tough assignments there.
Well done nice work.
when i first got my 55 1st
8 months in and not a whole lot has happened
My $350 56 Chevy 2 door saved from the crusher and gassered. Around 3 years later. I kind of lost track of time
Here is my 55 when I picked it up a few years ago and it still looks the same cuz I havent had time to work on it yet. Sorry for the big pics but I dont know how to resize them. Im not that good at computers.
Neat thread -thanx to all who post. ALL the rides here are great ; theres some serious talent lurking about on this board. But for some reason, 'dead last 63 f100's' truck just really flips my switch. And I really normally prefer Chevy pickups...
the first two pics are the first time building..
the sec set is after lady ran red light and rebuild again..
i always have the same pics in these threads. it's very close but life kinda got in the way for a bit
1st night home. just a shell
chopped, some new shoes, trim removed, lowered
and now in some primer, needs front glass cut, suspension work, engine broken in, and then i can drive it while i do the small things like interior and decide on a shiny paintjob
