Bill's 33 Ford coupe.

Post by checkmate on Tue 22 Apr 2014, 5:26 pm

I'm building this for a good mate, he wants to give it to one of his mates for a b'day gift. I'm aiming for a more productive year this year and trying to get a few new ones built and finish some of the half built ones I've got laying around.  Rolling Eyes 

I'm starting with the reissued/rebadged ZZ Top Eliminator.



And hoping to make it look something like this....



Prepped and primered the body a few weeks ago than put it on hold to knock the NNL cup 25 over and do the show but with that out of the way today I got some colour on it.  Very Happy

Might have to investigate those  Repco  Acrylic Laquers your using Rob. Nice colour !  Could use that colour on my next Mercury Kustom. Already used their etch primer. It was weird , 'cause it seemed to spray on thick out of the can then flattened out when it dried. Up our way the Repco paints are a little dearer than the stuff in Supercheap.

Still plodding along with this one, the deadlines looming so I'm trying to get stuck into it.

Got colour on guards today, try and clear them tomorrow the polish them and the body.

I always liked the style of the 33 & 34's over the 32's and this is promising to be a nice build........starting with that colour bigthumbsup

So how's that working oput for you?

I had the same plan, need a few hints on how to make it work, coz right now I'm about two years behind..

As for the wheels on the 1/1 car. Pegasus has some that are identical.
