For those that don't have recollection of the above vehicles stature.....

$m[1]


and here is the Buick with the rear bags fitted, she is going through a full body off Kustom job at the moment which will mean fitting bags all 4 corners, fender skirts, lakes, 3"roof chop and full Kustom interior in tuck n roll....
Engine is a 300bhp 5.7V8 buick lump mated to a th350 through the stock rear axle 4 bar mounted.

http://www.forest-kustoms.co.uk/53buick ... ckbags.wmv[/img]

The Truck is a 1941 Replica built on a custom chassis and has granada running gear underneath.
great fun but begging for a bigger motor, she has a 2.3 V6 at the moment but I have had it a year and it is being sold after our last show of the year in September so if anyone is interested, scrape together £8,500 and she is yours!
The truck cost over £15,000 to build over the last 3 years so grab a bargain!

The Morris Traveller is very unfinished at the moment, we cut the floor out and made a new chassis, channeled the body over the top and fitted a 2.9i V6 granada engine in her, the front metal is being replaced with a 1940's style willies front and the rear will stay wood but will be stretched out to look like a 1940's ford, the roof will be removable and chopped and that is the wifes shopping cart!
no pictures available yet, the car is in storage elsewhere.

Hats off to Spence for taming these monsters :D

I guess a roof chop has to be the most challenging but rewarding job of all. I've always been curious to know how the curved windscreens are dealt with though :?: I used acrylic for the side and rear windows of my Ford but that's no good for the front!

Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire (should be kustomising boats).....

:lol:


Glad you like the cars! they are great fun and soo unique!

Glass, I will let you know on the Buick, that is the scary bit, my plan is to use my air grinder which is very fast, use a 1mm disk and run it slowly back and for with water running over the glass, it is the heat that shatters the glass, if you can get the heat out then you are fine.
electric grinders are too slow and also a tad dangerous when used with water!
:twisted:
