Thread: ford pop

  1. #1

    ford pop

    hope you like pops.

    been commissioned to build two.both in different styles.

    this is the first.hoping to dry build a half decent car in 30 working days,then it will be off for bodywork/paint and finishing.

    i always start with the wheels and tires.sizes and tires are chosen,for what the owner wants to do with his car.this pop is not for drag racing

    wheels

    I know you think you believe you understood what I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what I said isn't always what I meant.

    thanks
    if theres little interest in a build thread,i dont see any point in continually posting pictures.i can quite happily just look at them myself on my pc,so i just stop posting.

    sometimes i get more interest from randon strangers walking past,when projects leave here on transporters,than from people who supposedly are into rods and customs.

    i dont really follow up on projects once they go from here,as its full on into the next one.
    the trike went from here to get forks made,and i got a video of it all running a few days back.

    pop i recently did,i have no idea whats happened.it needed about a week to finish the last bits.

    f100 i did befor chrimbo,the owner drove home.and as far as i know is driven regular.

    couple from the end of last year,though im sure ive built other stuff since.i do forget

    Thanks.every build I do is different.

    I have no one size fits all way of building.even my front ends I sell are all different to each other.

    generally have no plans,and just make this **** up as I walk into the garage each morning.

    The only criteria for this pop is it's got to have somewhere for a dog,so he kinda gets what I want on the rest of it.

    end of day 12,and about wrapped up the chassis package.

    knocked up some headers and an exhaust system.quick polish to make it all look proper chavy.

    rear frame done for fuel tank to sit on.

    bit bored with this now,so ill do something else for a bit
