  1. So next time no oil pan and a rod or 2 sticking out of the block, and a oily puddle under the car......going to use my artistic drivers license
  2. Thanks Dennis. I was talking with Tim Boyd tonight and he told me that you are working on or have just finished a coupe as well. Any pictures?
  3. Yes, I took license with the build. Well because, modeling.
  4. So this is a project that I started a year and 2 days ago. The plan was to do a quick build, but that went sideways quickly. The basic idea is that this is a rodder who is working on a budget. He has gotten the body and engine sorted but is now out of money to complete the interior. He will get to it some day but for now he is driving it everywhere. Some of the things that I ended up doing. The engine is a Ford Y-Block with a custom one off intake that I found a picture of on-line. The exhaust manifolds are scratch-built (yes I'm sure the spacing isn't quite correct on the cent
  5. So how do I go about moving my post from On the workbench to Under glass?
  6. Well, a year and 2 days is pretty much a quick build for me. As always I couldn't leave things alone and changing that, meant changing this. Which in turn cause other items to be changed, upgraded and improved. But like all projects, I had a lot of fun this one. Next up is finishing my 57 Ford Country Sedan 4 door wagon and midget racer.....or the BMW Z4 GT...or...well check back in a year or so.
  7. The QC is from RMCoM. Then I fabricated the mounts, transverse spring and shock mounts.
  8. I have to say that your suggestion and execution of the seat blanket was very important to the look. Thanks again.
  9. Thanks Tim, Yes, she is all done and now just need to bleed the brakes and take some pictures. Stayed tuned. Fred
  10. Thanks. It is worth it. But making the new window glass was a bit tough. But I'm happy with how it turned.
  11. Hi Gilles, Where are you located in France? I was born in Barr just south of Strasbourg. Fred
  12. Only a few days to go until Motor City NNL and I'm down to final assembly. Since I use epoxy there is a lot of glue and wait. But some progress is being made but the list of to do's is still quite long
