So far a very productive weekend
This will be a mild custom, inspired by a 1:1 car that my Dad built when he was in high school in vocational-tech classes in the mid to late 50's. My grandfather actually taught auto body and math, did not give my father anything in the way of money but did offer a lot of knowledge and support. The class worked on each other's cars, and of course had access to the school body shop, tools etc. While this will not be an exact replica, it will be as close as I can get based on what I discuss with my father as I progress.
This is after the chop and piecing it together, but before any "bondo". At this point, it is purely plastic, Tenax7, and some super glue. Behind the glass fit really nice, and there is almost no seem at all back there. I did add some additional styrene to the inner B-pillars for strength. So far, things are going well, this is my first chop on a 40 Ford.
That is our daughter's dog photo bombing there. These pics were taken with her cell phone, so the quality is not great, sorry. Future pictures should be better.
