  1. same here! thank you. thanks! thank you thank you. pull something out and do it I've learned alot with this build. being my first attempt at a tube chassis car. now I've got a line up of uncommon cars to do when this one is finnished thanks for your kind words my friend
  2. update on the impala I've re-made the firewall to allow more clearance for the turbo/down pipe assembly. still need some finishing but it made a big difference. I've also made progress on the drives haft tunnel and safety tube as well as the drivers seat cage. been playing around with the dash too. without something there it looks odd. the dash looks nice with the body in place but when the body is off it looks really bulky. not really sure what ill do with that yet. thats all for now. as always tanks for lookin and comments are always welcome JS
  3. just read through the progress of this build the body modifications really make it. so much improvement on this old kit the color is fantastic. really nice job my friend looking forward to more progress.
  4. thank you! I purchased the files from Cults3d and printed them myself. If you have a 3d printer, the designers are MCS-Design (engine) zforcemodelworks (wheel/tire)

  6. some side shots of a couple WIP's 56 f100 pro touring 61 impala outlaw cherry 2000 65 mustang Studebaker avanti gasser
  7. been thinking about a build like This for a few weeks. printed out a few parts and did a quick mock up. really pleased with the look so far. a good idea to build off of. thats all for now thanks for looking more soon
  8. thanks Francis! no plans on pushing this one aside just life has gotten in the way. now after the holiday season I can get back to this project and look forward to making more progress thank you for your wonderful comment Dave when I bend my styrene rod, I use a candle. I hold the part 3.5 or 4 inches away just enough to make it bend without distorting the diameter or stretching the plastic. it takes verry little heat. hope this helps! JS
  9. hello all started making some of the tinwork/flooring on the impala. after the new headders and turbos ill have to modify the firewall panels for better clearance.
  10. thank you for you kind words Sal! thanks marcos! I've got a couple on hand. if you'd like one let me know
  11. made some small progress last week. printed up a set of mirrored turbos and some mandrel bends. made a new headder collector and assembled the headders, turbos, bov, and intake tubes. the headders look much better to me and are closer together. ill just need to do the bullhorns on the body to finish them up as always thanks for lookin
  12. thanks marcos I appreciate it! hey Tim, it took some time to learn but really happy with the results. I have learned enough to fall down the rabbit hole of 3d. I appreciate your comments watching you and the others build these cars is really inspiring and always gotta get out of the comfort zone and try new stuff!
  13. simply amazing craftsmanship. watching you machine these parts is inspiring.
  14. well I've gotten carried away with this project i decided to try and make an engine in CAD took a couple weeks and a few test prints but I'm really happy with it. I'll have to fix the valve covers because they have no bolts. also changed from a power glide to a lenco thanks for lookin!
  15. i was really stuck on the front suspension so I remade the front suspension to be more realistic. properly lifting it instead of just blocking up the crossmember. made new strut towers and crossmember still need to lake the tiebreaker for the lower control arms and a skid plate. still needs a little cleanup but I think it will be good.
  16. this is one killer build. your machining skills are incredible
  17. marcos, this is a awesome build something a little different. love those wheelie bars. keep up the good work buddy
  18. some amazing craftsmanship here. you inspire so many people with your builds Francis. really nice to see your process and all the details you do
  19. been seeing this build on FB so glad to see it here. this is going to be a beautiful build amazing work so far
  20. thank you sonny thanks JC! thank you CT always appreciated thank you Tom thanks Francis! they are 3d printed. I'm using a resin 3d printer had have been doing work with auto desk fusion 360. ended up making a whole new engine for twin turbo should have the final parts finished soon. may end up doing a swap
  21. marcos, my frame and main bars are #212 .080 the the supports/gussets are #222 1/16 and the rest is #221 3/64 and thank you!
  22. thanks for lookin! thanks buddy! thank you! thanks! the Datsun is basically box stock but ill post some pics of it thank you! thanks! the wagon was a replica of a 1/1 I restored thank you! thanks! thank you very much! same here I built a two-tone green coupe too. have a few more waiting
  23. thanks CT! I also build 1/1 cars for a living makes it easy when you can walk to the garage and measure! thank you sir might be a while! glad to have you thanks! thank you thanks bud! thanks!
  24. OLD vs NEW made some new valve covers for the 932 old: new: made some headders, downpipes and charge tubes and firewall panels. headders need some fine tuning and cleanup but they don't look to bad and they clear everything which was a task in itself. might try to make my own intake and throttle body. going to start working on the front drive too. thanks for lookin!
