`29 ford pick up

Recommended Posts

Need a pick up for getting parts to and from my garage, so have started this one

Will swap the engine for a 6,1 Hemi. The rear is getting some treatment to fit the big wheels and to handle that power. The roof is lowered about 3 scale inches. Looking forward to build this. The paint is yet to be decided. But probably going for some grey with some graphics on.

I kind of went overboard with the cutting on this one. It ended up a fair bit wider than normal.

I wanted to keep the runningboards and the small fenders, thus I widened the entire body, scratched a frame and married it to a Corvette front. Will cut away the airduckt later on, to get a more stock looking frontend. Build a new bed, using the existing sides.

I think I have gotten the stance about right also.

The entire body is widened about 16 mm in scale, that would be about 400mm in real life. So it needed to be quite wider than normal. But hot rods aren`t know for beeing big cars either :P

Now the fun part of sanding, priming, putty, sanding etc to make all the joints look good.
