    Finally back at this. Pieced together the hood and scratch built some skirts. Still have alot of cleaning up to do and need to rescribe panel/door lines

    Used the roof section from a 32 ford. Worked quite well. Still have quite a bit of work/and cleaning up to do but here's the chop:

    Going with a subtle chop as I find this car doesn't need all that much to look good. Here's what I had to do get it there:

    1937 Chevy Taildragger
    Haven't done a build thread in awhile so here we go...

    This is an older AMT kit I got on eBay super cheap. It was the one with the yellow gasser on the box. My plans are a traditional custom with the usual goodies: caddy wheel covers, chopped, lowered, shaved etc etc. I also plan on shoehorning a Buick nailhead under the hood as well.



    I plan on scratch building the fender skirts and using a steering wheel from a 49 ford, unless I can find an early 50s Chevy butterfly wheel. Anybody know where I can get one?

    I'm positive. The ones from the kit are essentially the same thing except the center is a Cadillac crest, while these have a bullet in the center.

    Thanks again guys!

    Thanks Everybody! The kind words mean alot to me


    Yes, it was wet sanded threw all the usual grades I then hit it with a cleaner wax, novus 2 and 1, and then a little meguires mist and wipe when it was all assembled to removed finger prints/ dust etc etc. Thank you Dr Cranky for the polishing tips by the way. Very pleased with the results !
