I had this kit laying around so I decided to start it as the cuda project and its problems are burning me out, I'm deciding to build it my way. Its gonna be Testors 1 coat lacquer Inca gold with the kit decals. I stole the Halibrands for another project so its going to have body colored steelies.

hi jason, like the idea of your own build idea....not sure if i would use k.s. pittman decals, being that there are so many great choices out there. that inca gold color is very nice, a local builder sprayed a 40 ford sedan using it, and it is a neat color for an of the era gasser. looking forward to your completed project. best of luck, regards, a.c.

I love the mile-high front stance. Very typical of the gasser era. Good start!

It can't get any better than this. Nice stance and perfect wheel choice, I've always liked Body Color Steelies. Very nice job, can't wait to see more, this is great inspiration for my '40 Ford A/GS which will be 1963 NHRA Legal (In The Gasser & AWB CBP). Keep the Eye Candy Rolling.

saw this car race Stone Woods & Cook at Lions Drag Strip in the 60's... remember everyone was saying the the SWC car was cheating because it always won, something about having something hidden in the hood that shot some kind of ? into the Hilborn butterflys..those were the days, all heads up racing, no shoe polish....

good luck.

John

Hey Jason, looks really good so far. If you are doing a period build, I would remove the Accel decal looks out of place with the other vintage decals ......

Thanks to everybody for the feedback I appreciate it alot! Alan, I just realized too that the Accel decal is a little later in the years but I cant remove it as its sitting under 3 coats of clear so its just a lesson to do some research on whether some companies were around on the build. I got the motor painted and painting more parts so interior and built motor pics are coming soon.

heres some outside shots where the paint really pops!

I recently bought a mitre box and I was eager to use it so I cut up some k&s aluminum tubing and played around with it so would this be accurate for the time period?

I got mad that I put a decal from the wrong era on it and cleared it after finally pulling off a near perfect paint job and thinking about having to strip it I got pissed at it and just through it in the box.
