    Nice looking rig. I understand your frustration trying to find an area to do a little off roading. We have a JK that gets to get it's tires dirty from time to time. We have managed to scrape and gouge every skid plate. Even helped get a guy right side up using our wench. I don't know if you have ever considered going to a Jeep Jamboree since there are several in your area. I just checked the Catskill Mountains in Monticello N.Y. Sept. 21 - Sept 23 but there is a waiting list at this time. The Sept. 28 - Sept. 30 Main Mountains in Bethel Main is also waiting list only at this time. You might check the Jeep Jamboree web site to see about getting in next year. You might see if there is any Jeep clubs in you area that may know of any Off Road Parks in a short drive from where you live.

    Had some pretty big winds (70 mph +) on Saturday night. Many in the KC Metro area without power and much damage.  Out here on the edge of the prairie we only lost one 25 ft.. Smoke Tree Bush beside the deck. Just spent all morning cutting up the tree and put it all in the garden trailer to go to the city dump. Hardest part was digging up all of the roots to get the stump out.

    Beautiful clean build. Great body work, very smooth transition from the T-Bird rear into the T Bucket body. The engine colors are just like OEM and the spark plug wiring is perfect.

    I also like the color combination. I'm interested in the wheels you're using, are they  two piece ?

    Very realistic looking. All the sponsor decals are hard to do on the body and wing. Wing as in the top mounted Air Foil not a fender.  You got the color on the headers perfectly.

    Always enjoy your Ford builds. Your extra effort on the panel lines will payoff when you're done. Is it going to be a Crown Victoria or a straight Victoria ?
  7. espo added a post in a topic My version of Chevys should be 1963 ElCamino!   

    Great looking conversion. I agree with others that you don't usually see the little Chevy II being used. I have only done a very few such body Mods and agree it can become difficult. The only suggestion I might offer has to do with the rear window opening. As it is right now from the picture it looks like the opening will be to tall for the El Camino rear window. If this is the case you might try and use the window surround from the El Camino. You could also create a lower and upper molding or body panel to close the gap. I would try to stay with the El Camino kits window in any case. The tail gate looks perfect as is. I like the polished Ansen type wheels, very sixties.

    I had forgotten about this kit. That sure makes it easier.

    I'm glad that something came together for you. Good jobs aren't as plentiful as some would want us to think. You and the Mrs.'s  should go have a nice dinner out to celebrate.

    Looked at the drawing and it looked fine at first. Then I noticed something funny with the Hexnut, and then I looked at the  Support and then about the time looked at the Bracket my eyes crossed.

    A lot of great looking paint techniques, I like the Flip Flop paint on the body.

    Great looking build. I could see something like this at a 1:1 Autorama or something.

    Nice looking pair of Chevy's.

    Looks great. Where did you get the top Boot from ?  It looks like you have a matching Hardtop in the back ground.
  15. espo added a post in a topic Michaels Coupons   

    Got a mailer from Michaels a couple weeks ago for 50% off starting 7/15. Went and checked yesterday to see if they had anything that I couldn't live without. Same O Same O, they're even higher priced than Hobby Lobby and everything had been on the market for months. Went by my favorite Hobby Shop and got the new '66 Suburban. In the end I may have paid about $10 more now than what I would have paid with the Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon and I didn't have to wait six months for them to get it.
