Progress on 36 Ford

Recommended Posts

Finally making some good progress on the 36. I’ve got a bike that has color fade like this so thought to try it out here. The silver is Tamiya’s TS Mica Silver and the black is Tamiya’s TS Smoke.

Thanks for the kind comments. The hubcaps are from Replicas & Miniatures.

Very nice looking Kustom. I like how you blended the front Fenders under the Door and eliminated the Running Boards. The front Grill really changes the look of the front end. What are you doing for the rear deck ?

At this point the only thing done to the rear deck is changing the trunk from the rumble seat to the standard. The kit comes with a continental kit but I’m not sure it adds to the over all look. Thoughts?

It is your call on the trunk mounted spare. While  I think it breaks up the otherwise flowing lines of the body I'm sure there are many who feel that it would enhance the Kustom look. If you do want to use the free standing spare I would consider mounting it like a Continental Kit between the body and the rear bumper, in a real "Tail Dragger" style. This would give you an opportunity to do something creative on the wheel cover.
