56 Ford with damage!!

Postby arni » Mon Nov 27, 2017 3:10 pm

Going to be doing a British banger (similar to a DD car) set in 1980 so no stupid rules to follow...Started by cutting the front fenders for clearance.
Image

So the doorskin has been removed to be replace with foil.
Image

The hood and fenders under way,the idea being to complete the body,''damage'' it,spray and decal it - decals on the way...

Well the surgery has started,the core support and lower part of the fender have been removed.
Image

As well as the lower rear fender(the A POST broke on me so it is taped t the roof for safekeeping)
Image

The front 2/3 of the hood - you get the idea!!
Image


Image

The wheels tested,with r slicks (tuesday the 17 of july 1980 - that was summer!)
Image

A mockup....

Been chopping the floor pan,chassis legs and inner fenders a bit.being an American car it would be a 'target' for the local lads - so it will have a series of hard hits to the rear plus damage to the front.
