  1. Did a bit more work on this. Spent some time digging through my tire and wheel stash for the right set. I don't think I found it but these will do for now. Had to lower the rear suspension and put together a front suspension from the parts box. Going with a 70's style so I'm alright with it sitting a bit high but thiss may be too much. The tires and wheels are just mocked up for now. Still need to get some headlights and taillights together. Later-
  2. Ooh! I NEED that PE 36 Ford grill since I just got this in the mail today from a FB purchase. PM me if it is up for coming home with me. (And any of the flathead parts) Later-
  3. I have a trailer. I'll send you some pics. Later-
  4. Every once in a while it's fun just to build like I'm a 12 yr old again. I recently got a box full of broken up builds. Tonight I pulled out the main parts of one and started putting it back together, adding a few parts box pieces and minor scratch building. After 4 hours of building here is where I'm at. After one or two more sessions at the bench I should have a completed build for my shelf. Later-
  5. Which Hudson (what year) are you offering? I have lots of Chevy pickup and Blazer rebuilders. Later-
  6. Very nice job you did on your build. I love everthing about doing these 24 hr builds each year. Later-
  7. Yes. Started at Noon Saturday, took time out to nap from 4:30 AM to 7:00 AM. Got back on it at 7:30 and finished at 11:45 AM on Sunday. Makes me wonder what takes me so long on all of may other builds. Later-
  8. Just finished this today for the 18th annual 24 Hr build. Widened the rear wheels, lowered the suspension, molded in different taillights, wired the engine, added rare earth magnets to hold the hood in place, altered the kit exhaust and added turned aluminum mufflers. Airbrushed Testors "Colors by Boyds" (remember them?) Purple Pearl for the body and a custom mix of House of Kolor for the frame. A few aftermarket parts (MSD ignition box, Aluminum mufflers). The Rat Fink decal was one that I had in a parts box that I inherited from my buddy, Mike Flynn. A fun night of building and now I have another one for the shelf! If you haven't done one of the 24 Hr builds, you should. They are a blast to see the variety of builds from many different entrants (think we were somewhere between 150-200 this year- most tied in over Zoom) Later-
  9. Thanks everybody for the kind words. Later-
  10. Thanks for the warning. I actually started one of the coupes at the same time as this one. I just didn't get as far on it. I did see where I would need to give attention to that area. Here is the coupe I started. It is just mocked up on the wheels but I'm liking it. Later-
  11. Nice looking build! I've always thought about getting this and some of the other "fluff" kits to build for fun but never have. You're making me think again. Later-
  12. Yep, early style air conditioner (a swamp cooler). You see them a lot on the lowrider bomb style cars. Later-
  13. Thank you! I thin the paint 50/50 with Mr Hobby Leveling thinner. You can also use good ol lacquer thinner. Later-

  15. I just finished this up tonight. I built it to see how it goes together before I build the coupe on Saturday for the 18th annual 24 hr build-off. Airbrushed LA Colors "Blue Moon" nail polish, lowered suspension, resin/PE LaSalle grill, die cast wheels and tires, Revell Parts Pack Caddy engine, 3d printed Thermador window mounted A/C, modified parts box sun visor, customized kit exhaust. The build was a bit of a pain but I had fun. Later-
  16. Been working on these two 37 Fords. Getting close on the blue Sedan. Later-
  17. Just got this in today. Never seen the bed mounted stereo and it was a surprise since it was not included in the pictures of the sale. Only needs a rear bumper and taillights. Later-
  18. Here is what I have. Tried to send you a PM but I couldn't. Later-
  19. Great build for a 24 hr job. I enjoy doing a 24 hr build. There is an annual 24 hr build coming up on Jan 27-28 if anybody is interested. Come and join in. PM me if you want more info. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1195723418001143/?ref=share&mibextid=NSMWBT Later-
