For you scratch built body fans

Cam is making some interesting progress on his scratch built body. Here's a recent pic from his journal.



Although his journal isn't that huge yet (I've encouraged him to include even more pictures and descriptions so we can steal ALL of his ideas) you can check out his techniques here: http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...20take%20shape

Two words huh?
Ingenuity and resourcefulness.

I like the simplicity of the technique. make the detail lines first, then fill them in with steel.


Kind of like a coloring book.
But a slightly more advanced coloring book.

Later, mikey

That is a project that takes alot of time and dedication. Specially doing it outside with simple hand tools. Looks great as it is coming along. Am interested to see what he does with the body lines.

I like the idea of that side panal Jig. the concept of what he is doing is somthing that most any body with a little knowladge of how to do this stuff could do because of the simple tools it uses, but takes talent to get it to where he's at. the 1/4" round steel can be heat up and bent with a propane torch, so you don't need an oxy/acetelyne torch, and the 20ga is easilly bent. I think when I get ready to build my custom body 30's style car, I'll use this tequnique, and add a removable hard top.

I named the car after my dog LOBO

hello every one i never thought that I was doing anything inovative or off the wall just thought I was haven some fun this all started when I finished my house and started to look for a project. I really wanted a 32 coupe wanted one since I was a kid every one that I looked at. big bucks and bigger rust holes when I first seen the brooks I thought thats the ticket wow what a price when it arrived at the door 27,000 and some change. so far what I have spent 4 sheets of 4x10 20g and 20 sticks of 1/4 rod 275.98 with the taxes. so far have spent 40 hours and a couple of cut fingers and will be laying out the budget when I am done. should have built the garage first. well this would not be the first hot rod I built out side

for you scratch built body fans

Fantastic talent. my 63 year old friend built a roadster frame,cut the front off an added a honda goldwing front with a chevy v6,then he built the body with a convertable top. it looks like a old car from the rear.I'll try to get some pics. it took him 11 months to build an he drove it to Sturgis an back this year. keep up the great work.

Hi! I am an old autobody man. Many years of working in body shops with little or no ventilation ,plus various chemicals,dust,paint etc left me in bad shape. I have been on the waiting list for a double lung transplant. I hope anyone reading this will have the good sense to wear a mask! If you can't breath,nothing else matters. I thank you sir for asking others to sign their donor cards. It means life for many people who otherwise will die. Of course many others would have so much better quality of life with an organ transplant. To donate your organs is the most heroic act you will ever do. In Canada the shops are much better now,but you wont find many 65 year old bodymen.

Quite right. Cam left the board some time ago and took down his journal before he left, which is too bad. (Jon has changed the system now so you can no longer do that.)

However, you aren't missing all that much. Cam didn't get much further than what you see in that single picture in this thread. It was an interesting approach and looked like it might have some promise.
