Latest project

Just got in a 1934 dodge pickup to do. Truck was painted about 10 yrs ago and this is as far as it's gotten done in that time. Ower said only way it was going to get done was to pay someone to finish it. Should be a little bit of a puzzle but may be fun and getting paid by the hour.

I love those trucks. I had a fellow student in highschool with one, always like them the front was so car looking unlike the Fords.

Now you got my attention! A few decades ago (1968-69) I bought a slightly used '62 Biscayne 2-door. It was a red/red dual quad 409, with 3 on the tree and posi. I upgraded to a 4-speed, 4:11s, slicks, and a Z-11 cam. What a beast it was... and it stomped any muscle car I paired off with! Can you tell I miss it?

finished

Took a long time but it's done. Didn't plan on the wife's battle with breast cancer when I took this in. Things kind of got delayed as I was working on it and it had sat for ten years and been moved from here to there and some parts lost that I had to build from scratch. But it's now done and back at home in Green bay WI.

Looks great, I'm always concerned when someone comes in with a project that they started and didn't or couldn't finish. I have some very strong rules when I take on something like that. Sorry to hear about your wife's battle...hope all is well.

Again, looks great.

Ray

Lookin' good!!! Life has a way of throwing "speed bumps" in front of us... which sometimes slows down the work we want to do. I think of it as a "test of our persistence"! Looks like you have it too! :-)

Right now I am working at "saving" a badly deteriorated '34 Chevy Panel. Of course he wants it done in very dark colors. {:-( We are winning... but it sure takes lots of hours and achy muscles.

In a couple weeks or so I will be ready to paint the outside of the main body. The graphics theme is a "'30's gangster car". I'll post some pictures when it finally all comes together.

We'll need some closeups of your truck project too. :-)~
