I thought I'd resurrect this thread with photos of some older builds .

If you're new here spend some time and take a look back at all the cool stuff being built !

Sweet '60 El Camino Bob. Scratch built?   I love the Ranchero too, very cool. Is it from Detroit Resin Automotive Group? And that Corvette, wildly cool!

Great in-progress builds.

That's my first car. I drove it as a Junior in high school. It was replaced by a '69 LeMans. The body is not resin, and the roof is resin, from Tom Coolidge. The car was off white with a bronze/copper interior. Finally, no, it is no further along today than it appears in the picture. Thanks for the compliment!

Thanks for the kind words.  I'm having some trouble with the front end.  I used a Camaro sub frame and it's to wide for the Ford so I have to modify some of the parts to get it to work.  I'm in the process now of trying to narrow the front end pieces.  Dan

How oh how did I ever miss this a year ago when it started???? Incredible stuff on here, pages and pages of it - too many great builds to comment on!

 

First off, running your car in primer on its way to a completed paint job is a venerable tradition in the kustom world. Here is a pic of the recently restored Jack Stewart '41 Ford as it looked in iconic white primer, just for a little "flavor":

For good or bad, most of my projects don't stay in primer for very long unless they are pretty much dead in the water. Here are some oldies I really need to get back to...

 

'53 Studebaker streamliner - the "Studeliner"

It will have Potvin Hemi power:

Ardun powered Competition Roadster

And a couple of '49 Fords, a custom (in blue suede) and a road racer (in white primer).
