« Part 24: C-Cab Delivery Van has rear doors Part 25 of Hot Rod FORDS series no next part

The C-Cab Delivery Van is pretty well finished!

Now some final sanding then a few coats of my homemade WipeOnPoly as the finish.
The wheels will be glued in last.
No too bad a representation of the Delivery Van in the internet photo, if I do say so myself.

And for Tony

The 3/8” dowels are cut at 45deg and glued with Starbond Clear Medium Thick CA Glue; I’ve add some two pack epoxy to various areas to strengthen the setup.
The 4 straight dowels are recessed & glued into the exhaust muffler.
The manifold was made in two parts, only the outer half being drilled to accept the dowels.

Dave as I’ve spent at least 60hrs on the build I’m going to give it to one of the grandsons as a “keepsake” toy.
I have 3 vehicles for our middle daughters 3 boys now…
