1934 Ford street rod

Recommended Posts

Finished another one last night.  My '34 Ford is painted with HOK white with some Pearl Ex violet mixed into the clear. Did a wheel/tire swap, otherwise it's all from the kit.  Dummy here forgot to take an interior pic. It's the kit interior in white and lavender with deep purple carpeting.  I used a cutoff wheel in the Dremel to cut a spot for the taillights.

Thanks Andy. I have this thing about always using some red when there's purple/lavender around.

Good looking rod. I'd like to see the back a little more to check out the taillights in the fenders

Thank you Carl & Jesse. 

Taillights are just slots cut with a cutoff wheel with red acetate glued inside the fender, Jesse.

Ah, neat idea. The incision of the cutoff wheel sweeps nicely with the shape of the fender at the bottom. I like.

I think it worked out pretty well.  I've used the same process to cut horizontal lines before.  Red acetate with some BMF on the back does the trick for me too.

Thank you guys.  Sorry about the interior pic.  I don't know how I missed taking one.

Ray - I think you'll like the interior on the '62 Pontiac I'm building.  Full length console between the 4 bucket seats.

The engine bay looks very clean and sweet! Just fyi, I glued the sides of the hood to the top, to make sure they were correctly positioned, and then you can remove the whole thing for photos of the engine bay!

Nice.  Another example of your bold color choices ~ that always seem to work out just right!

Bold color choices indeed! I like it though.
