      This is where my deuce build will be garaged. I figured I'd get my lift space early. Here's the final scoop on the build. I'm starting from zero with a fresh kit. It's going to be a coupe but I'll be covering the coupe top and will make it look like a Carson top. I'm putting in the 59 Caddy engine with two 4 barrel carbs and no blower. The wheels will be removable so I can put on wires, mags or steelies with scratchbuilt hubcaps. If I can solve my gas tank dilemma, I'll channel the body, put in a rumble seat My Hot Ford (Deuce) Coupe and a fully upholstered interior. Pics to follow. More options to be added.

    Wow, talk about bringing back modeling memories. I just never got the hang of doing the thread cut right. It always went off the track for me. Besides, I could never hold on to the body right. For straight cuts, I worked the cut like Don described for the body sectioning. For curves, I cut the initial shallow line with a very small bur in a Dremel My Hot Ford (Deuce) Coupe at slow speed and finished the rest with a #11 blade or I did it with a jeweler's saw. Any defects were sanded and filled with styrene My Hot Ford (Deuce) Coupe . I do it the same way today.

    Rick, the doors will be cut out, fully detailed and then will be suicided hopefully with a working door handle.

    Broke sucks....how many "T" kits you got rat holed? Guys if you want to buy a new "T" kit...rattle Guido's cage, I know he has a few he'll part with for a reasonable price plus postage. Retail is about 80 bucks....see if you can twist his arm and work a deal. We got to get this guy into 'puters.

    Hey Guido.......go to your gov't surplus or chat up someone from a business or department store. When these folks upgrade, they'll usually give away their used systems cause they can't get anything on a trade in.

    He's right folks! I can part with a few. These are all new kits that are factory sealed! If ya need one, just email me at: fastmuscle@webtv.net and we'll work out the details. To make it easy on me, this is only for the folks who live in the U.S. and Canada. Thanks! :)

    Here's more of my deuce. First, the cowl beltline will be removed and replaced at the right level. Second, the cowl will be made similar to a 34 to give it an old classic look. Third, the upper windshield lip will be curled down a little bit more for a more streamlined appearance. More to come.

    Thanks guys,. Wait until you see it in the stage it's in now. I opened all the windows, recontoured the top and got rid of the weird curl on the upper part of the windshield, got the split windshield post started and glued the top to the body. Next I have to finish the top, put in the center windshield post and start the filling process. For this I'll use the Evercoat putty My Hot Ford (Deuce) Coupe syringed into the gaps.

    I've been working hard on the body filling defects and learning to really work with the filler. I've got the rear rolled pan almost complete. It's about 75 % done. There are a lot of modifications I've done. Photos will be hopefully coming this weekend. It'll have some primer My Hot Ford (Deuce) Coupe on it but it's not going to be the final primer My Hot Ford (Deuce) Coupe coat by any means.

    Just so you all know that I'm really building something, here are a few progress shots. There are still a number of defects that have to be gotten rid of so please don't be too hard on the finish yet. The first pic is the way the body is now. The second picture shows where the door will be and how the rear fender will be built. It'll be shaped similar to a 46-48 type Ford rear with a fat fender and skirt and with a door similar to the 34. The third pic shows the lead sled appearance ot the rear and the fourth shows the front. The last pic is a quick mockup so I can check that everything still fits. Lots more to get done including putting back some of the trim, opening the doors, the upholstery, etc. The completion date will be pretty close to the deadline.

    You've come a long ways and added a lot of skills to your bag of tricks Jeff. I remember the days when you were stompin' around SA with those little cars....nice job man. I picked up few 1/25th kits for the grandbabies over the Holidays....I'd forgotten how small the parts were. You'll make the deadline....no sweat.l:
