Recommended Posts

Started this build last night.I'm not a 100% sure on what direction I'm going to take on this build.But,one thing for sure it will be low.

I cut the rear door open.I will probably be cutting the front doors open aswell but I haven't decided which way they will open yet.The black line you see are the mold lines that I marked that I need to remove.

Any opinions on what direction I should got with this build will be considered.

Thanx for lookin'

Jeremy.

I love your idea of having it slammed with those rims. I'd say your heading in a pretty good direction. Maybe a chop, channel? This looks like a fun kit, which one is it?

Thanx I appreciate that.Chopping or channelling is out of the question now,since I've got one of the doors all the way cut and half way through the second one.This kit is old.On the box it has directional rims.

I like this, Kinda close to my 1950 chevy air bagged custom, i think they are the same rims too. I would do air ride and leave the body mostly stock, no trim or badges but nice clean bumpers. I would even put a filler panel or what ever they are called half way down in the back fender opening. Going to watch this build come together.

Two cents worth---> As for me, I'd like to see some great wording on the panels. Ficticious business, real business; I like the commercial aspect.

Yea man, I would just keep it real clean and laid out then. Either way I still think its going to come out pretty sick, I'll be watching. Btw, that's a pretty nice looking ford dually in your avatar.

The new Revell 77 Van has a couple of great options when it comes to side graphics.

Thanx for the comps and the suggestions fellas.I never even thought of making it like a parts runner for a shop.Thats the route I'm going to take.But its going to be pretty close to this height when I'm done.

Thanx I appreciate that.To cut the doors open I used the slow tedious process off using the back of a #11 xacto blade and then cleaning it up with various sanding sticks.

Honestly I'm not 100% sure on clubs or shows around the Alberta area although I have been watching for info on them.I know there are clubs in the Edmonton area though.Check with some of the numerous shops there and they should be able to get you contact info for one.

Thanx for the comps and suggestions fellas.I'm going to go suicide with the doors.Color wise I'm not sure on the candy red.I did a 53 hardtop candy red with a black roof not to long ago so I might go the candy route but not red as of yet.

I should have updates soon on progress I'm going to start hinging the delivery tonight.Had a little bit of a set back.The rocker panels under the doors snapped off while I was sanding the door openings.I had to reinforce the rockers.So hopefully I should have hinged up pic tonight or tomorrow.

I love it. I'm thinking 60's custom with supremes and white walls, and throw a 409 in it.

something like this....
