Oh yeah - this thing will be versatile! I can even use it as a storm drain cover if need be! Trucks can run over 'um without a single bend!

Got a little bit done tonight....one vent tacked in.
Purdy happy with it (I should be it took so darn long to figure out how to do it the way I wanted!) - Maybe more tomorrow......

I appreciate all the kind words and inspiration! You guys keep me stoked! Oh...I also appreciate the bad stuff too.(not as much though!).... but it does inspire me to do better.

I'm enjoying the heck out of watching this thing come together. I'd like to see a couple big steaks on those grills!

I've seen some of Bill Hines' work up close, and some of the other big names in 50's-60's customizing - your vision and skills are right up there with them. Congratulations on CBOM.

This kind of stuff humbles me and gives me inspiration.

The grills look great. Nice shape and proportion....

...one thing I might have done different is move them up the decklid a bit further to try to balance the space from the front edge of the lid to the grill and the space from the outside edge of the lid to the grill. More like this.



I realize it is a little late since the one side is already tacked in, but just a suggestion from one artist to another.

Love waht you are doing with this one. Roll it out and get a nice 3/4 rearview and I will do quick little rendering of it. I want to see what this thing can look like when done.

Default Re: Dub-N-Aire is off the paper into the garage!

My original thoughts were to have them up higher. But when I laid them out, it just didn't look right to me. I do like the rendering of it finished though! I may have to rethink it tonight.....
Next up is the reshaping of the fenders, so I will have to get a good long shot of it then, so once we have a day w/o rainI can push it outside and get a long shot for ya to work your magic.

Thanks fishguts on the compare to Bill Hines....but I'm not even in little league compared to his big league play!......maybe t-ball

John - you were right! I tore apart the one I welded in last night and redid it tonight. Hopefully will finish it up soon and do the other side and take some pics.

Sharing my thoughts and ideas WAS a good idea!

Well, that's my comparison and I'm stickin' with it!

I've been to scores of Street Rod Nationals and regional events and some Lead Sled Nationals and watched a build by about a half dozen big name custom guys and came to realize their work is about 90% vision and 10% craftsmanship. After seeing up close what they do, I felt a lot more confident in my own skills which I always thought didn't measure up. Quality work counts (and you do nice work), but things aren't as perfect as one might assume even in the best of the best cars. Everything looks better in photographs. The really great cars are an artistic vision that becomes a piece of rolling sculpture. I think that's where you are heading.

I took John's advice and relocated the grills today (my wife's presne to me!). They look much better I must say. You can see (for now) where I had to change the drivers side.
small 14 02-14-09 001vents.jpg

Most of you know about these, but I just found them this weekend - sanding discs that fit on my 4" grinder. I have been using grinding discs all along, and found they also have 4" cutting discs and now sanding discs! WOW! They both really saved me a bunch of time - and make my body work easy and look better. Funny how I just use the same old tools, the same ways and don't open my eye's! I used the old drill and screw-on sandpaper adapter until last year!
