37 Ford ratrod

Recommended Posts

As if I didn't have enough on my workbench,I started this kit.

I do not know a lot about fords, rods, three window,five windows etc.

All I know is what I've seen in magazines and from the Swedish rod scene.

I hope you'll enjoy this build as much as I will.

I started out by mocking up the wheels and tires and lowered the suspension enough to get it slammed, then I removed the drip lists on the sides and scribed new door lines.

Then I removed the pillar in the rear window. Partly because I like the look of it but mainly to practice freehand scribing.

Some more cleaning up needed before the next layer of primer.

Thanks Carl.

Need to buy some paint for this so it's kinda stranded atm.

Please tell me if I'm using any terms wrong or something.

Good looking stance and a great job on the rear window.

Maybe you could show us how you got that stance or is just sitting on the tires...

You said you lowered the suspension. I'd like to see how you did that.

Thanks

I can snap some pics when i get home. The rear was tricky, had to cut some off of the framerails and when I almost got it as low as I wanted but not quite enough, I cut the wheel hubs in half and glued the halves back together with a slight offset.

So the driveshafts doesn't quite align with the centers of the wheels, but that's something I'll have to fix later down the road.

Form>function amirite :D

Pics are coming.

Shot the engine/tranny and the doors with the accent color. This petrol/turquoise will be used in the interior, chassis, wheels and engine. Body will be mostly primer grey. 16654619142_6dd43b530b_b.jpg

Next up finishing the powerplant. Washes, carb, wiring etc.

C&C welcome.

I like the turquoise, very nice choice..

The Mrs choise, I have to obey. "Fits the interior decoration, that way you can keep them in the living room". Women, cute creatures. I sometimes wonder how they function.
