Default 28 Fast Four build

I have been looking and collecting for a while for my next build, but nothing really tickled the creative funny bone "so to Speak" The opportunity came up to buy this pair of all metal cars and the imagination went into full gear. That's the only gear the wife will allow for now, at least they are home.

Here's what I dragged home.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Twin Dodge Brothers? Do you have the hoods and grilles for these animals?



Just once, I'd like to see "somebody" keep their fenders and hoods, especially when they have them in decent condition...

The wheelbase and the polished metal make this one pop.

Beauty!

That's some beautifully seasoned tin !!
Since you have 2 of them, why not get "creative" with the rough one -- I have a penchant for making 2 doors from 4 doors, lengthen the front doors with a section from the rears, shorten the quarters a tad and sew up the rear door hole - oh, and a haircut of 4" or so. I think fenders are kool too..
The pic Doc put up shows much more severe slicing but for me its a bit over the top, looks a bit goofy with rear wheels so far back IMO...

Exactly the plan that was forming in my head. The chop I'm not to worried about, making two doors instead of more doors I think I can handle, shortening the rear quarters I'm not sure I understand let alone execute.

I was just thinking to take out a couple inches to make up for lost metal from all the vertical slicing and splicing - cut the roof skin and door sills and pull it together.
