Peter Bilt Trucks #2: And on to the next part of this make it as I go build!

08-08-2020 06:53 AM by crowie | 6 comments »

And on to the next part of this make it as I go build! The rear axle can be screwed in place as the box will cover the screws. Two tone on the fuel takes make it look like straps. Double check the fitment of the lid. A couple of exhaust stacks. Fitting and strengthening the cabin roof with a couple of axle pegs through the “A” pillows.Air horns on the roof too….just shortened golf tees.. A rear bumper bar with taillights and an a...

Peter Bilt Trucks #1: One mean looking PanTech is started!

08-07-2020 06:16 AM by crowie | 4 comments »

One mean looking PanTech is started! I firstly started with a engine and cabin on a chassis… It looks okay well a good start! Take the roof off to reveal the insides! And it even has a gearshift and a steering wheel for Aussie roads. Now to cut out and glue up the back…. Used most of my clamps to get that done! WOW! It looks big! And the back doors worked out well… The top of the PanTech Box or lid was tricky for...

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #13: Ebonizing the tyres, first timer.

11-20-2019 08:48 AM by crowie | 14 comments »

Ebonizing the tyres, first timer. And mistakes were made, yes. You have to use Super Fine 0000 Steel Wool as the standard hardware steel wool doesn’t devolve. After watching a couple of videos I decided make a brew of strong black tea to prep the timber. I let the tyres dry then applied a coat of the white vinegar and steel wool solution.

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #12: Trying to get the front view correct

11-10-2019 02:47 AM by crowie | 13 comments »

Trying to get the front view correct I’ve add some timber to do the inner flare on the front mudguards, then did a lot of hands free shaping. The headlights position was too high but with some more shaping I’ve managed to lower them.

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #10: These headlights look way bigger

10-31-2019 08:15 AM by crowie | 4 comments »

These headlights look way bigger so on went the thinking cap again. I found some 1” dia headlights on Bearwood but shipping to Australia isn’t cheap along with a very poor exchange rate. Make them! A craft bead + a tiny wooden spoon + a piece of dowel. They still need some shaping and sanding but they’re okay

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #9: This has been one tricky little part to make.

10-30-2019 01:40 AM by crowie | 7 comments »

This has been one tricky little part to make. A set horns. Started with a bead filling in the hole. Sanded one side flat enough to accept a piece orf 1/2” dowel which I’d drill a 3/16” hole before gluing in place. Once all was held together I shaped the dowel and glued in the top of a wooden golf tee.
