40 Ford coupe re-build

Recommended Posts

Here are some pictures of a 40 Ford that I built when I was 13 or 14 years old.  I about destroyed the car and now I'm trying to fix it.

Great idea for the rear window repair. I have a forty on the shelf that I built many years ago, so I'll be watching for inspiration to do something with it.

Jim, thanks, I use Amazing Mold Putty by Alumilite to make the mold and I use finger nail resin that I got from Sally's beauty supply to make the part.

Looks like it works great!  Nice job!

Here is the latest picture of the 40.  I sprayed Blue Green Pearl mixed in clear over the Black primer.

Thanks guys.  I'm installing the BMF now and will post a pic when I'm finished with the Foil.
