Hi to all you rodders out there,
I've just been bitten by the bug myself, and I have bought a fibreglass kit of 34 three window ford coupe.
Does any one have some pic's of 34's being done or finnished so I can get some ideas.
Anything would be a great help.
Thanks in advance
Doug

Here is to success on your new project, there are plenty of links to car photos. You might try this sight that has photos from shows and a lot of finished cars for sale. www.hotrodhotline.com One note, plan the whole car from the start and stick with the plan. Look at photos of cars on the net or in magazines with a critical eye. Pick what is wrong with the car in your mind as well what is right about it.
Stance, It has to sit right and have a proper set of wheels and tires for the theme of the car.
Color, your choice but we have all seen bad color choices out there. Usually on cars that the owners complain to the magazines about never winning a trophy at a show.
Interior, again, what is the whole theme of the car. An interior that belongs in a lowrider doesn't work in a billet rod.
Attention to detail, spend that one or ten extra hours to make something perfect the first time. Remember nothing is really hidden on a street rod, we do get down on our knees and look at the bottom as well as the top.
There are some books out there on the subject, Boyd Coddington had one out a few years ago that is good.
Now get started and get your builders page going so we can follow along.
