« Part 262: 32 Ford working on the Fenders Part 263 of Toy Construction series Part 264: 32 Hot Rod Chevy Coupe »

I keep giving away my hot rods so lets try it one more time.
I hid the big motor on the last one so thought I would leave the hood off this time to let it be seen, will also be putting the fenders on it, adds a ton a work but really makes for one sweet looking ride.

Lowered the roof about a half inch and lowered the body to where the frame is covered, there’s a name for it but ain’t coming to me right now.

+++ Up Date+++
cutting body = chop,
lowering over chassis = channeling
...chop n channel.

These are Toys and Joys plans and one from way back when they weren’t putting frames on their models which make for a great first time build, you don’t have to worry about the frame not lining up or other problem that can get a new builder in trouble.
That being said I had to cut out for the motor.

Already have a motor for it, so we’ll see how that works.

Had to get the inners made and finished so I could close it all up.

#4 over and out

I am amazed at how fast you, and a few others on this site, put projects together. From the time I made the Jeep axe and spade to the time I glued the last piece it was about 180 days. The train took me just over a year. Great job thus far. I might need those engine plans for a future project.

The more projects you do the faster you get, you get where you know what you need to do and have the steps in your head so things go much smoother.
