like the headlights
where did they come from.may work on the fordson im doing
This project is truly gob-smacking.
What inspires me, is some of the people leaving comments such as 'Amazing', 'Awesome', 'Unbelievable' etc are also at the top of their game and have skills many could only dream of.
This is some of the greatest metalwork done on anything ever. There are very few restorations, concept cars or Hot Rods, even with multi-million budgets on an international level that see this quality of work.
I saw the donor cab up close in person and 'nice cab' all depended on how deep you poked. Put simply, this was a portion of a long abandoned workhorse truck. Considering it's age, yes it's condition was reasonable, but could you throw some paint at it and expect it to look good? - Nope, don't be daft
Sure any restorer could have thrown some Mud and paint at it, but realistically this car was already well down the Hot Rod route and a restorer would not have chosen this body and chassis combo.
I've just started to learn this panel beating game and to regularly see work on this level is inspirational and a major encouragement. On the flip-side, I'll know I'll never have even a portion of this skill set.
I'm starting to learn how a dent a fraction of a millimetre deep is visible across a room, yet with this project you can look at the bare raw steel from every angle in the room and just see perfection.
I can guarantee this Chevy will have have a swarm of hard core enthusiasts on their bellies around it at every show.
This is not a crew of guys in a televised workshop, this is one bloke in his back-garden.
Keep it Coming!
Ask me to fix something and I'll come at ya with a hammer!
