Beauty and The Beasts

Chris Williams (left) and Randy Clark (right), mug for the camera as the '49 emerges from the fabrication shop. The only thing left to do is take her apart and apply make-up to our little beauty. Only question is, can we do it in time for Detroit?

Once apart, the bodyshop will have its turn to smooth out the blemishes and sand her down.

Here you can clearly see the sectioning the went into lowering the hood profile. The grill is stock, and will require some work in the body shop, except for the lower piece, which was replaced with by a look-alike milled in our shop from solid aluminum. This new bottom grill piece, secured to the frame, will act as a bumper. The rear license plate surround is the original one that used to be on the front of the car.

The profile certainly is a lot different from the original, even though the chopping and sectioning was not all that radical.

Also milled from a single piece of aluminum is the lower windshiled trim, which shows up nice in this pic.
