    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    I noticed a new bug where if I quote someone it LOOKS like I can post normally...until I press "Submit Reply" and then it refreshes the page and never posts my post.
    Hopefully the next update fixes that, but just a heads up for the people who need to know about these things...

    This whole build is a masterclass in building a 30s Ford hot rod.  Brilliant!
  9. CabDriver added a post in a topic Has anyone ever built one of these?   

    What made them thing that writing "Crazy Prostitute" on the back was a good idea?!

    I like seeing projects in progress, personally - post lots of pics with lots of detail is my vote!  It's cool seeing a build come together!

    Hey Bobby, my friend!  How's it going!  Great build so far - glad to see you with something new on the bench!

    I got some heavily Z'd Model A framerails for a project that I'm planning:


    Some custom designed Model A grilles:

    And this rear axle with a devil skull centre section:

    Ohhhhhh, haha - I was surprised that they made a whole new tool just for a convertible version.  Guess they didnt!

    Got a load of little bits done on the Show Plow this week...nothing major but I think I collected enough up to make a post worthwhile...

    First up, mounted the master cylinder to the frame



    Painted and foiled the gas can and axe to go in the bed:



    Painted and added mesh to the show shoes - I'm just painting the grips here with some Tamiya rubber black acrylic



    Got the steering arms mounted



    Painted and cleared the dash



    And painted, foiled and wired the battery.  The connectors are held on with some tiny steel bolts



    More progress as I make it - it's quite a nice day here today, so I might take the opportunity to spray the final wet coats on the body so I can get that polished.

    I had a busy week, but gave the pearl body some more coats of pearl white yesterday and a light coat of clear today to level it out nicely:




    Now these I'm REALLY excited about! It took some time and effort to come together... My buddy who runs the local hobbyshop hooked me up with a contact who could print a couple of custom decals for me on a decal machine...and a couple of weeks later I have my own decals! I only have 2 of the logo though, so I had to be careful applying them (especially as I'm not super experienced with decals).



    Here goes nothing!



    Success!



    Don't mind those holes in the trunklid - lights will cover them when this is done.

    I tore this one, but managed to line it up ok I think...



    With some luck I'll have some time tomorrow to gently mist some clear on them, let it set up 24 hours or so and then lay down some gloss coats. More soon!
