I think it's all a scam. It's really at some fabrication/rod shop with a team working on it and he just goes in and takes pictures.

John long Funny you should mention that Train.

I had a very large church here in town ask to use my '36 roadster in a video tape for their Christmas sermon. The car was to represent an analogy of restoration.

I dug out the pictures of the restoration process and the video guys showed up complete with drone.

After a 7 hour video shoot they had used zeroe of my build stuff. They used one of my Chevy front fenders with a close up to "trick" the eye into making it look like a '36 Ford, Had me weld on a junk hood, destroy a piece of metal in the English Wheel and the bead roller. The only authentic part of the whole video is the drone photography of Barb and I driving the finished car down a two lane country road.

It did indeed remind me of the TV shows you see. I have to admit I was disappointed but pleasantly surprized when a thank you came from the folks at the church in the form of a $200 Visa gift card.

I would love to think the end result is that the video helps the church reach out and touch a lost sole. I don't know, hopefully it is not just entertainment and is truly the Lord's work.

John

I did finish up the patch for the fuel tank filler box. Also finished the tube but I am not going to weld it in until I prime the tube itself and the inside of the quarter panel.

John long Thank you Damnesia. I read this, headed for the kitchen to get my morning coffee and hit my head on the top of the door jam. you made me about two feet taller.

You have perfectly voiced my goals in starting this thread. I am very thankful that it has been received like it has. It has probably been most valuable to me on many levels but I never dreamed we would keep it going for three years.

In any case it has been a lot of fun and as you can see, a pleasant mix of tech advice, both give and take, but also a fun social gathering. For some reason this thread has never been plagued with trolls and has always been fun.

Thanks again,
John

damnesia I just found this thread while reading up on bead rolling, what'd I miss?

I spent about 3 days reading it from start to finish. This is truly the best thread I've ever read. It's like reading a book you can't put down.

John, very nice work and thank you so much for taking time to post great pictures and explain things. I'm not a novice to doing this type of work, but I'm not a pro either. Like you, I take my time and just enjoy the process. Truth be told I rarely drive any of the cars I have built ( actually, I rarely drive any car ) but can't stop working on them. Something about taking old rusty cars and making them cool again. Mostly have done old International Harvesters but am moving onto a car my wife bought me for my birthday. Not my favorite car, but since she found it, had a couple of my buddies check it out and bargain for it and gave it to me all as a surprise, I feel obligated to work on it ( '62 Fairlane Sports Coupe ). It's actually in better shape than any car I've done in the past.

Anyway thanks again for:

1. Teaching me what I do with a hammer, dolly, c-clamps and scrap steel as braces is called tipping, and can be done much easier and better with a bead roller ( mine is currently wrapped up under the Christmas tree ).

2. The tip on vinyl fabric for laying out patch panels.

3. That being frugal can include a TIG and a rotisserie. I'm working on explaining this to the wife.

4. That epoxy primer can be brushed on. For whatever reason this has never clicked in my head.

Thanks again and keep up the excellent work.
