Man, I finally found the CBP for me!! All of my builds are stalled in some form or another. I had a friend over the other night and we were going through my stash. I have in- progress builds that go back 24 years (69 Rampage Camaro) I have been focusing on a couple lately to get them finished. They are a 50 Ford Sedan and a 41 Chevy pickup. I am also working on a 51 Chevy.
I am going to a buddy's house tonight to build. I'll take some photos to post.

Later-

Well, I just pulled one out of a three-year intimate session with the ol' mothballs- http://www.modelcars...81#entry1008930

 

Remind me politely and I'll come up with some content for that I'll post here instead of its separate build thread. :rolleyes:

Okay, another Back on the Bench project. AMT '49 Ford. Going full kustom on this one, including a chop and turning it into a hardtop. I'm also using the front/rear rolled pans and will be extending the short spearlike bodyline from the rear tail light all the way to the edge of the door. Paint is still up in the air at the moment, but I'm thinking something glossy with some scalloped decals.

Awesome Bob. Can't wait to see the new workshop.

 

Guys, I decided to try my first chop. First off, it's nothing fancy. I nixed the B-pillars and just cut the top into two pieces, leaned the A and C pillars in a bit, filled in the missing length. I wanted a hardtop, so I'm not adding modified B pillars back to it, but it makes the windows seem super long and I'm never liked that so I added some stock to make the C - pillar larger, something I've never seen done before on a custom. I'm going to clean it up a bit and prime just to see how it looks, but I'd love some opinions.

 

First is the side I haven't modified yet.

This side has the modified C-pillar.

nooooo!! this thread cant be dead!?!? I am sure we all have projects to keep this thread going! I started up a thread a few days ago just for builds like this and canned it when I found this one. well, I am here to revitalize this thread. I have so many projects, it's totally ridiculous. I was hoping to get everyone to suck it up and get a project done each month of this year. yea, you know you have that many projects. just post up a picture of the build in it's current state and at minimum, when you complete it, then move onto the next one. well, that is my goal, 1 per month at the least (ha, I could go for a few years). so, will there be anyone to man up and join me?

 

in no particular order, here is a small sampling of my projects;

well, for one, this post will send us back up to the top, and 2; I fell into the old project trap ... twice. someone was looking for some engine parts, so I got my box of "bagged motors" out and what to my surprise, a blown big block chevy motor I had forgotten about. "man, this would look GREAT in that 66 pro street nova I was doing." so, I set it aside, started digging some more for the stuff I was suppose to be looking for and lo and behold, I find another chevy big block. "well, this would look AWESOME in that other 66 nova I was planning on making a sleeper out of......"

 

i started the new year out with;

 

1 - 55 chevy drag car

2 - 62 Pontiac pro street

 

on my bench, then sometime, don't know how but these got added........

 

1 - 60 starliner pro street

4 - 32 ford pro street

5 - 70 super bee

6 - 70 coronet 500 pro street....

 

...to the bench, and now I have added 2 66 nova's. hmmmm, i have got it bad!!! my goal is to have at least 4 of these done by the end of February.... wish me luck!!
