« Part 169: Back to the coupe Part 170 of Toy Construction series Part 171: Building a VW Bus »

It’s time to start something else I wonder what that is? So here’s my last build blog for the coupe and the year, but wait it just hit me we still have another week. LOL

Here's the Project finished.

We need some brake lights. Done!

Mufflers and wheels. Done
It also has head lights but can’t be seen till the last picture. Done

I wonder where that motors going?

I haven’t showed this yet, it has suspension in the back.

Then off to the paint shop.
You can also see in this picture what limits the rear wheels, up and down and front to back.
The drive shaft moves with it and keeps every thing in line.

If I have to get out of my chair it ain’t going to happen.
I quit wrenching a long time ago, and buy trucks that don’t need fixing. LOL

Thanks for the blogs this year….so interesting and helpful. I need to do some reading of past blogs and find a first project and learn to make some wheels.

Merry Christmas and hope Santa brings you useful tools.

You may… the ones sneaking up behind you… without your mirrors.

BTW... where’s the rear bumpers… with that donk, you need to worry about traffic behind you (except maybe busses… with mirrors), BUT… what protects the boot when the missus backs out of the driveway?

Nice job #4, but what are those metal pieces you tried to hide underneath?

Your right Ducky I used some small screws to hold the frame to the body so I could take it on and off as needed to get things fitted but all is good now so need to remove the crutches and add some dowels to hold it for keeps.
Might even add some mirrors. NOT!

On reflection… its your call!

Oh, as a Chrissy present… forgiven for the screws.

Great job, love those old coupes, what about the flames we used to have on the side behind the Engine and the exhaust? Job well done I enjoyed all the post.

Another amazing build, as always outstanding detail. I don’t see what model and year it is but my guess is a 50s era rod, a little deuce coupe?
