John.... That Paint work turned out Killer. I love how the red just Pops from the black. Looks like you are on the home stretch now. Keep up the great work. Jeff is going to be a lucky guy to own a model built by you.
Martin... It will be fun to see the 64's come together. I haven't figured out yet if I want to do an all chrome chassis or if I am going to chrome all the suspension parts and rear end, then paint the chassis frame with some very small graphics on it. I have downloaded a quite a few lowrider pics for reference. Also trying to figure out how I am going to do my set up in the trunk...lol Should be fun to build. I just gotta get the funny car finished first ...lol
Big... Walking Dead fan here... Was pretty upset that they got rid of Glenn. He was one of the few I really liked... Although I knew we were going to lose one for sure with the way last season ended but was totally shocked that they got rid of 2 people. I know its part of the story line but still there were a couple others that they could of gotten rid of that wouldn't of bothered me...lol. I have never read any of the comics and I have no clue how close the show and the comics are or are not. My understanding from watching Talking Dead afterwards is that, it opens up the story line for a lot more seasons.
Johnny Boy.... that is one huge update... Man is this build looking Killer. You are nailing it on the details and the weathering. I am loving the work you are doing here. That red looks killer on the roll cage against the black. Loving the little switches you added to it as well as the radiator grill and the mesh for the radiator. Top Notch work my friend!! Looks like you don't have very much left to finish this one.
Tim... what more can I say that has already been said. That mock up looks Incredible!!! Top Notch work right there my friend. I am loving it . I am am so glad that the manifold worked out and fit perfectly. It is great to finally see a pic of the printed part. This mock up just looks nasty and that engine will sure be shown off sitting all out in the open like that. This is just one Bad Ass Build!!!
Here is what I would like to do. Now I am not going to make any promises that it will get done in time due to a few other projects that I need to get done before this one, but I will try and sneak working on this hear and there when I have time. Been wanting to build this for quite some time and though it would be fun to join this community build. My plan is to do a 64 Impala that will be sitting in the weeds. Here is a Mock up of how I would like it to sit:
Awesome work Johnny!!! This build has really come to life with color on it and your weathering magic. Those Wheels look great. Love the touch with the real wood you used for the dash. The little details really make things shine.
Tim... what can I say... That is some fantastic soldering and Jig work. Those Chassis sides look great. Gorgeous work on them for sure!! I am already awaiting your next update. You are just killing this build!
Tim... that is an awesome start to your headers with the flanges. And with the Jig you should have no trouble's getting things all lined up and soldered. I can't wait to see more progress on them. Pete... I would of been interested in reading about the rotary table. Then again I have been wanting a milling machine for quite some time. Was totally interested in the sheroine stuff but as of late been looking at some other options dude to the limited travel a d hearing that a few others have had some chattering issues due to the main body of the machines made from extruded aluminum. I don't know if you have had any issues like that but would be interested in hearing if you have. So right. Now I have been doing a little research on table top machines with cast iron bases.
Dang Johnny Bravo.... Now that is one heck of an update. Nice work on everything. I love how you did the seat with the piping and how it looked all painted. It turned out killer. Those Seat belts turned out awesome as well. And that fuel pump and fuel filter turned out nice. I am loving this update
Tim... you have me speechless. Those rims are so gorgeous and have me drooling. Ypu are one of the best my friend. I hope to be able to machine my own stuff as nice as that some day. I just gotta ask what's next on the agenda list? Chassis by chance?? I am dying to see this as a rolling chassis with those wheels.
Joe... don't feel bad it looks as if what ever is wrong with Photobucket its affected all of my links and pictures as well. All of my photos in my threads are broken links and don't show the pics. It has to be something on their end.
Tim... That is an outstanding update. Man that wheel is Gorgeous!!! . Its a 1000 times better than the kit wheel. I can't wait to see the 2nd one done and then It will be so cool to see the chassis as a rolling chassis with both front and rear wheels on. Keep up the Killer work!!
