Custom 32 Roaster

Post by Dinky on Tue 24 Dec 2013, 11:56 pm

Before I started the monster truck I was working on 32 Ford, now that the truck is ready I will proceed with this one Surprised 

The box


Its was a High boy


And channeled it to Low boy


First I tried the original chassis but I decided rebuild it for about 80%





After then it was time to rebuild the interiour, because the body is lowered I had to change the floor with the tunnel for the gearbox and driveshaft
I cut the tunnel from the floor and raised it 5mm, the glue is not so decent but there will come carpet flakes on the floor and tunnel so should be good



And this is where I stopped and from where I will proceed Very Happy 
Stay tuned Wink

Thanks all, I'm not 100 percent sure about the color yet. Thinking about candy blue, candy green or copper.

Color suggestions are welcome :-)

This color is my favorite for now.


What do you guys think, is it strange to keep the rod like this or better to shorten that it ends before the body?

I got a small update on the Roaster.

I changed the corners (more round) of the chassis and added some attachment points.



What do you guys think of my radiator mount, its only test version and suggestions are welcome.
