Hot Rod 2958 (Johnny Cash) MOCK UP

Recommended Posts

Nice work. However, IMHO, the full height bumper makes the rear end look heavy. In my head I was envisioning a blade bumper, like something based on a 59 Chevy bumper?

I see exactly what your saying...

Please don't think I'm not saying your work isn't impressive. The narrowing job you did on the bumper is executed well. But the height that it adds to the overall appearance of the rear takes away from the hot rod feel of the build. If you want to keep that bumper, since it fit the body well, maybe just shave some material off the bottom? You do nice work, so I'm sure you'll figure something out. Or you can ignore me :D

After looking at it last night, I believe I have an idea to not use the bumper at all. A great Fabricator by the name of Jesse James said "No matter the time spent making a part if it doesn't look good, don't use it" I really don't mind doing just that...

Quick Mock up...

Stalled on the Polara for a minute, so I thought I'd add a little depth to the head lights on this one. Once things are filled and smoothed they should look pretty good...

Finally got around to finish sanding and priming these parts, combined with a few other things.
