Nailhead-powered '29 on '32 rails
Posted 25 November 2012 - 10:01 AM
Started with another gluebomd with multiple coats of horrible paint.......
After a 2-day stripper bath, and another AMT '32 blob frame, getting modified.....
Stance and overall look dialled in. Port spacing on the headers is wrong for a nailhead....I'll fix it. This one will also get a scratched DuVall with a different design.
A mildly-chopped '32 radiator shell leaves plenty of ground clearance, allows the cowl line to flow nicely, and avoids the monkey-face look of a too-severe chop.
A '32 hood gets narrowed to fit the '29 cowl, as well as the '32 shell. Interior will be button-tuft with a vintage-look roll bar hoop.

Thanks a lot guys. From looking at the profile shot, I think the nose is just a twitch too low. Maybe bring it up to where the line of the hood is tangent to the top of the tire.
I like it. Would be better to lower the rear just a tad?
