    lookin good tim! cheers bryan

    ok guys, im back but moving slow. all of my materials have been sitting so long that most of them have dried out, i lost 2 sets (4bottles) of casting resin.....man that stings a bit! and alot of my paints are dried out, so i will have to resupply when i have the extra money..... i started on this willys a while ago, and decided to get back on it after seeing how richard made his steering work on his 32 rod, it reminded me that i had done this, so i guess its a good place to get started (again) heres a couple shots of the steering, i chopped the knuckles off of the axle, filed them so they moved easily, and added some pins to it. here you can see where i cut the knuckle and steering arms from the knuckle, i have the center tierod completed as well but alas, no pic of it yet. hopefully later this evening i can get something done to it. ive done alot of work to the engine as well, i scratchbuilt some pulleys, and to keep harry happy (haha) i made alternator brackets, and a tensioner for the blower drive belt. they came out pretty good, but again, no pics yet.... stay tuned, ill have pics in a bit. thanks for lookin cheers bryan

    yea Ray, i like to live dangerously.......LOL bryan

    I finally managed to finish cutting one door open just sitting here watchin tv......its till a bit rough, needs some serious cleanup and a jamb started.. sorry for the grainy pics, the lighting in my living room sucks! i also cut open the trunk, more to come guys, stay tuned cheers bryan

  12. Newbie trying barn find style 67 Dodge Coronet

    now that i clicked on the thumbnails......you nailed it. thats lookin great, not that it wasnt before......but now i saw it in greater detail. once i started building weathered/rusty stuff there was no goin back to shiney........i havent built a shiney car in years....to me weathered is much more fun to work on, but i still like seeing those shiney cars! cheers bryan
  13. Newbie trying barn find style 67 Dodge Coronet

    thats lookin good! salt works great, i use it all the time.......so does hairspray, and believe it or not......silly putty! i usually just rub the salt off with a soft brush and some warm water right after the paint has "flashed" it will give it that "peeling" look, there will be actual flakes of paint barely hangin on.....but im impatient, LOL keep up the good work, youre doing great! cheers bryan

    my buicks were just skylarks, nothing fancy. one of them was actually a "special" same thing as skylark, just different badging. my fave buick from the 60`s tho.......love that rear bumper, and the sweeping line down the side. cheers bryan

    youre welcome! i had to come back in and look at it again. i agree with john too, your weathering is very restrained, very realistic lookin......most weathered builds, and im probably guilty of it too, look like the builder used every technique at his disposal. i usually just use the salt technique, and mig powders though.... i try to stay away from "overkill" keep this one goin, im really liking it, ill be watchin this one. cheers bryan
