First flame layer on Thunder buses-wip

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

FINALLY!!
GEEZ…didnt think I was ever gonna get a chance to work on these again!
Between health issues and car stranding me then subsequent diagnosis/repair that have been plaguing me recently…I just did not know if I would make headway on these again.  But here is a rare shot of the first flame licks.  Now keep in mind, everything under the masked areas will be black.  Ive lightly sprayed a custom pearl blue over the top then added first flames in custom medium metallic grey.  Next layer will be brighter silver or chrome.  Then I’ll unmask and coat with candy blue…or thats the plan right now. 
Have to work in the wee hours because of the heat here lately too.  But..thats the least of the hurdles of late. 
Anyway..enough whining..lol..more painting!
Hope to have these and more done this week..we will see!

Man its been a looooooong time since I’ve done one of these!  Did quite a few when the casting first came out.  I was the first customizer to make one these into a “panel” configuration by adding a 56 ford panel rear roof section.  But this one is not fated for that.  Altho it is already modified subtly!  Ive smoothed the tailgate and shaved the rockers (ground effects) to give it a more even stance.  Also have the kick butt pro rodz mags/rubber tires featuring black centers and visible brake discs!
I may have some other mods in store.for.it.but will have to wait n see..lol 😉
Coming soooooon!

Here’s a peek at the stretched merc coming up.  This is post clear stage as all moving panels had to be removed or risk bridging gaps…which is not a good thing!  So now…the task of sanding/polishing begins.  Followed by assembly.  Im looking at several days before its done…but…with any luck and no sand thru incidents…she will be ready sometime, late, this coming weekend.  Stay tuned!!
