« Part 10: The Body and Boot are joined... Part 11 of Hot Rod FORDS series no next part

Nearly Finished!!

The body and back are glued to the chassis.

The radiator is glued in plus added stays.

No windscreen/windshield as I’m sure it wouldn’t last the little boys play tests.

The rear bumper bar is done, BUT I’m keep that surprize for until the final revival.

So all the needs doing is the seats glued in place, the wheels glued into the chassis plus a little detailing before 3-4 coats of satin polyurethane clear…..

I just typed some thing and then realized I’m not on one of my post’s so took it off.
But this mirror thing is getting old, and bringing other’s into it is not good manners!!!

Bruce, Ducky and other gents,

With a Hot Rod Ford T-Bucket with a “blown big block” who needs to look behind,

as all are well and truly left in the wake…Go fast or go home…

First rule of racing is what’s ahead that matters…

BUT in ” The Gumball Rally” (1976)

Franco: And now my friend, the first-a rule of Italian driving.

[Franco rips off his rear-view mirror and throws it out of the car]

Franco: What’s-a behind me is not important.
