I'm the type who learns most easily by watching then doing, so this is invaluable. I've used a few of these processes to make parts and small sections of bodywork, but seeing them put to use on the scale of an entire car is inspiring.

Fantastic subject, too. I can never get enough of 40's-60's concept cars.

Also, THANK YOU for the link to US Plastics. I would love to try that out. The sheets are huge and one would probably last me a lifetime, but at that price it would be well worth it if the properties make it more viable for forming.

I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say I hope to see you continue this thread.

Cheers,

Glu

The grill is just a simple bar grill for this one.

I might stick this in the 1932 chevy I have going but need to redo the headers for it to fit

Here is where the main parts are. Most have been through the paint shop. I still have tail lights to make and a few bumpers. They should have been done by now -_- There is a lot of dust on them at this point.

If you look at the very first photos of the rough prototype, it has been revised and is to the left inthi photo.

I re worked the front and rear. the rear ws totally cut out and reformed.

x3, Hey Ken all I'm getting is "sorry image deleted" and the link to your photobucket says error, which is a pity as your build sounds fantastic and I would love to see it.

Kind regards Michael.

just because the rest of us can't see the pictures doesn't mean you're not going nuts...

Well someone dug deep in the archives to find this thread, it was started over 3 ½ years ago and the latest pictures were posted 2 ½ years ago, so "much water has run under the bridge" since then. :rolleyes:

He could have rearranged his albums, deleted the pictures or even closed his account with photobucket since then...who knows.
