like this paint job?



ten more pics here: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s...3956&showall=1

seen the car many times in Anacortes, WA. it's goin to seed now, but the owner lives in a wheelchair so.. very cool machine gun in the back. just what YOU need on your coe. thousands of little pop rivets that are glued onto the car. VERY realistic! oh yeah, one of the major feats of realism, in my book, is that all the upholstry (seats) are done in tent canvas!

found this page here with a WET DREAM of a radar invisible car, and MUCH AWESOME, AWESOME CAMO paint jobs:http://hushkit.wordpress.com/page/26/ as well as the first pontiac(?) firebird car/plane?

Thanx I can wait for better weather . I picked up a set of rims that have 8 2 inch holes and look like American racing rims called the revolver look like the cylinder from a pistol they will tie in the bomber theme

I like it. It you do the bomber/nose are thing you got to add rivets. We recently did a jr dragster for a 10 year old girl that wanted it done up like a P-51 mustang complete with airbrushed rivets. Really, like an old A&P is going to airbrush a couple of hundred rivets. Much to her surprise it had about 200 solid aircraft grade rivets installed when she pick it up. She was thrilled.

Beautiful truck, but I've got to ask - for what purpose was the bed built? It does look like a child's playhouse. I'd have to make severe alterations on it so it wouldn't drag down the overall package...

I wish I had a pic; saw a COE years ago on a F250 or 350 chassis with a stepside duallie bed and even kept the "superduty" tailgate. It was a seriously bad-to-the-bone truck with a diesel engine and alcoa rims. My girlfriend and I were going to a dinner for her job; and I spot this thing in a dive bar, pull a U-ie, go flyin in the parking lot and run over to this thing to check it out. LOL

That aluminum bed is a damn good excuse to get an English Wheel and a tig welder. The COE has these beautiful full curves, and that bed is all flat wonky angles. Its certainly cool! But it needs a little help.

My friend I got it from is a welder and was making it his shop truck . He is finishing the side toolbox doors and panel that is open . He taught himself to weld aluminum and built it from scratch . I do carpentry finish work so I will use it this summer . It will be a blast to roll up to a job site in it . It is so nasty sounding has stainless headers and exhaust edelbrock cam carb,intake , he said it is about 375-400 horse it rolls . It is such s blast to drive !! It is such the beast and the looks i get driving it down the road . Priceless ! I can wait for cruisenites Thanks Stephen
