I have to agree-we have all been staring at the same Willy for years and its refreshing to see someone take some fresh approach.

Thank you Heartless and FLB. I need to raise the chin guard up a little, the more I look at Him. Its in the works. Ive been getting my but kicked all morning on the new rear deck lid. I just can't visualize how it needs to go together. Ive almost cut a whole sheet of styrene and wasted it trying to figure it out. I did make some paper patterns but after fighting them I just wadded them up and chucked them. I'll get it eventually. Ideas and goals for this one is.........
I will run the visor I have started.
I will be making a glass split sun roof.
Of coarse the induction rear deck hood.
Another full Interior but with racing theme. Seats cage and what nots.
That's about it so far. See what transpires. Thanks for the comments and views.

Hey Beers how are ya my friend? Rear deck is looking fantastic. I was wondering what type of wood you generally use for your builds and is it treated or is the primer and paint sufficient enough for a heavily used rig?

Doing good N8, I use Paint grade MDF pressboard material, mostly because i can get it free. It holds up very well after primer and paint. Some items i have shipped have came apart in the mail. Due to the abuse in shipping. If its sealed right, water isnt much of a problem, for example my 63 gmc and the model A both were run in mud water and snow with no problems. Go to a local cabinet shop and ask to raid their dumpsters. Tons of good good wood scraps to build with. Thanks my friend, hope this helps.

You must post a pic of the A model Ford. Or if there is a build thread post a link. Thats what the Poocorn Sutton build im doing is. I was gonna use the Parma 34 Ford body but im not gonna be pleased with it if I do.
