I've spent the last couple of days doing the body work on the '36 Fordillac body tub, and have gotten to the point where it's looking pretty good. No going back now to the "Rat Rod", patina'd look, it's all bare metal and filler, and looks like it'll be super straight. The chopped up tub really looks like something that Ford shoulda done. Kind of a Roadster Victoria.
Anyway, I sculpted a (very nice, I think) bead along the truncated rear section of the body to match the wheelwell bead, and continued the doors upper character line up and into the new part which blends into the dash. These were done with "MarGlas" short strand reinforced filler, which I also like to use over all the weld seams and edges. It's super stron, waterproof, and then requires just a thin skin of finish filler.
I've got a couple of more days of hard work ahead before it's ready for primer, but it's coming along. I'm anxious to get the frame and suspension pieces primed and painted, but I want to see the bodywork done, so that stuff will stay clean, bondo dust and overspray free.
It's exciting to see it coming along, although I thought I'd be driving it by now. No point in rushing it at this point, so I'm taking my time to make it nice.
