« Part 168: Played with making another indexer this one for 5 or 10 points. Part 169 of Toy Construction series Part 170: Just about done with the coupe »

Time for the headers and sand sand sand.
I know their super simple but I like them. lol
The body, bonnet and motor are all glued up so now I’m able to sand the sides and get it all smoothed out.
I can still remove the frame for some suspension work down the road.

Love the headers and exhaust Bruce…starting to look mean and a real hot rod….
With the different photo angles you can now see the back wheel/tyre is larger than the front..
Cheers, Peter

OMG I can hear that cackle and smell the methanol from here, dont be burning the tyre now!,... and I just noticed there is no Dicky seat and wait for it …..the LBD mud flaps!!!!

An absolute masterpiece !

I took a second look and is that a scotch brite buffing pad in the background? which leads me to ask , do you have a KA Tools Geneive sanding system?

Your model looks really well done. The engine looks great and I love the way you did the tires and wheels too. What brand is it? I did some hot rodding in my youth and I bought a 1934 Ford three window coupe for about $20 similar to the style of your model except for the grill. It was in perfect shape body-wise and even had the original paint on it. The engine was shot, but I had planned to replace with an Olds or Chrysler engine anyway. Unfortunately I didn’t have any money to do anything with it and I eventually wound up with a 1940 ford coupe which I liked a lot, but I always regretted the missed opportunity with the ‘34.

MY dad used to tell story’s of when he was a teenager in the 1930’s and they would buy a junker at the junk yard and could use parts from other cars in the yard to get theirs going.
This was around Chicago Illinois so they would leave the tops on but then when summer came they would cut the tops off for the cool factor.

No big $$$ here just a buffing pad you can get at Harbor Freight for less than $10.

Sorry one of them cheap us things but if you saw how they are made it would be easy and well worth the trouble for the nice buff it can give to small parts.
