ford / chevy partsbash > pick up with a twist

Recommended Posts

going frankenstein with left over parts and stuff i already cut op tpo use parts for other builds

started with this 1940 ford pick-up cabine , back then i chopped this cab and put brass tubing on the firewall

sanded of the red paint first to reveil the black underneith

after a lot of sanding i got through the black and then the primer and found styrene again

then took the rear quarter panels of a 57 chevy and cut up the roof of the chevy to use as bed cover

put a wheel in the rear

and started to look at difefrent wheels and tyres

here with a styrene sleeve and a small styrene rim as center

same but used a hub cap in the center

now i want to use the front clip of the chevy but there are no headlights or bumper or grille , so i then should make a custom front end .. or maybe i can look at a nother front end from left overs

i want a blown v8 sticking through the hood , i will just let the parts lead me

Should be cool. I've seen videos of a Pro Mod truck doing high speed burn outs and it's awesome. Finland, I think.

decided to go with the style of the rat pick up with the coronet ass >

1551560_413772172089032_1832321663_n.jpg

started on my version , instead of a coronet its a 57 chevy rear end

placed the light houses , bumper , that became a whole lot shorter

1620460_413772238755692_766779132_n.jpg

found the perfect tyres with a good sand they will look like the reference rod

made a tailgate , the chevy trunk was not usable i already used part of that .. so i took a chevy trunk lid and bend it into shape did the round shae myself by heating and bending ....

i had 3 corvette bodus so i hacked one up .. other parts are usefull in the future :)

glued a bar of sprue on the top rear of the trunklid wich i will flatten and file into shape later

thnx bryan !

i made good progres this morning :)

first i took the rim backsides that fit the axle and made them a lot smaller (width) and for the picture with dryfitting put some deeper bbs rims in the tyres

1655993_414153512050898_568931248_n.jpg

made a closed part in the bed , underneith i can slide in a gas tank (need to make that) and let the fillerneck come up through the top plate..

need to make wheel wells and a floor

1012054_414153518717564_489167432_n.jpg

i had old new beetle rims i saved from the bin ounce .. and took the revell rims you find in a lot of kits ..

i never use there revell rims because they are to common ..

so now i could use them as a center for deep dish rims

1798151_414153558717560_622666147_n.jpg

and ... need to spray them chrome

148654_414153572050892_488302058_n.jpg

under the rod

1620604_414153578717558_1787251953_n.jpg

like the reference rod the rims fall deep into the tyre and are nice and deep

1743644_414224278710488_483178887_n.jpg

then i decided to spray the whole rear in primer to see how it looked .. red is hard to see where there are issues or ..

now it wil be a rougher rod but hmm it actually was pretty smooth ..

sprayed the rims chrome and then after drying painted them with brown oild paint and with a wet cuetip removed the brown oild paint leaving it in the edges and deeper parts

1780735_414673778665538_2056344240_n.jpg

sanded a bit on the primed rear end

1656272_414673775332205_1971972569_n.jpg

here you see its brown in the rims

63581_414673798665536_928336798_n.jpg

the rear will sit higer eventually so that its got a rake in the cab and bed

just closed some gaps on the inside of the bed , the underside and on the sides of the tailgate .. beside the cut chevy parts its all left overs and some old plastic so i just filled in the gaps with car bondo that becomes rockhard

its drying tomorrow i can sand the bondo

1555414_414778968655019_1855319977_n.jpg

the inside of the bed will get more detail later
