Hi all some of you may remember this





Well I did it originally purple and gold but the sun turned the gold to chrome and I hated that sooo, I thought I would try and give it a second chance.

It's going (if my skills are up to it) get this in it 





It means a LOT of work (gearbox tunnel to say the least)

Encase anyone has not seen this beast before on top is a 1/32 humber snipe I'm working on.

Hi all I will have to move the battery (Not sure where maybe the boot)I think I may be able to shoe horn it in.

Hi all been messing about with wheels just can't decide does this look ridiculous


I really like the small wheels at the front but the rear (although bigger) I think don't look right in the wheel arches (of course I could remove the wheel arches)
Or if I mix wheel rims what about this

Or keeping the same rims (Still smaller at the front)

There is surprisingly very little difference on ground clearance at the front considering how much bigger these wheels are

Hi all well my soldering is world famous for being abysmally poor so here is my best effort at the headlight bar.



I've installed the engine and radiator also done the wheels with the large at the front and small at the rear. Loads of connections still to me made to the engine and got to figure out the exhaust system.

Hi all I'm pretty crap at this sort of thing I want to change the shape of the cars roof first I thought of removing the roof completely and cutting the door pillars to level with the top of the doors.





As you can see I can't do that as the top hinge for the doors is incorporated in the door pillars, then I thought of cutting the rear pillar off level with the base of the rear window but I can't do that as there will be an ugly step at the back, what should I do.

Well I thought I would weld the doors shut and de-seam it




As you can see from the last pic it was a huge mistake it will need a load of sanding and resanding to get anything like a smooth finish (and that's before any custom paintwork)
Anyway I couldn't resist trying it on the chassis, I must say I'm quite excited I think it looks great, at least it's a good framework for a great hot rod.

Hi all well paint job is done (needs a few clear coats and rubbing down to smooth it) I quite like it.

Hi all just a quick update before we're off on our hols I've fabricated the exhausts for it.

Hi all well I'm back off my hols and after a huge amount of hacking and jiggling I managed to make the interior fit.

I changed the centre pillar from leather to wood I like the contrast between the leather and the wood (I think it looks more luxurious)

Still got the dash to do, thinking of adding rev counter and oil pressure gauge, wondering if I should add a more modern Speedo.

Hi all well I don't like the bulge in the boot with the tyre so I'm doing away with it and am going to go without a spare. Not decided yet but I may add a spolier to the boot.

Hi all well this is As far as this is going looking like this anyway, it's off the bench while I do a bit of research and catch up on some of my stalled builds.

When it returns to the bench I'm going to attempt to do it as a steampunk car.
