Been awhile. The T-Bird has been disassembled and put into paint.
Chassis has the first coat on and working on some small parts, still have the cage and fuel sell to do.
Second coats will come later.
In the mean time started working on something different.
Started with an old Peterbuilt truck body. removed everything not needed such as horns, lights ,air cleaners.
Got rid of the fenders and filled the openings in. The body was then notched and set back some
just behind the front wheels. Then we needed a way to mount the body.
Made up a long post out of two and drilled them out for a piece of brass tube for strength
and mounted to the body.
Made a new read deck to cover the gear plate and keep the body from moving sideways on the chassis.
Stil rough right now but it's a start. Was going to lower the body somemore, but the deck is already set
and I don't want to break it off and start over so we'll leave as it is.
All for now
