Well.... I've gotten started on chrome foil on the stock hearse, but I have a question on the pro street hearse for everyone.... Should I chrome foil it, or should I leave it plain?





You be the judge!

Maybe paint the trim in a different black? How well does that black foil work?

I removed all the trim below the beltline, and I was wondering if it would look odd with the trim being chromed above and not below....

Hmm, I have this Jo-Han Heavenly Hearse lying around, and I aint quite sure what to do with it. And being a rare and expensive model I wanna be 100% sure what to do with it before starting..... Any ideas?

Hmmmm.... Well, you could give it to me for christmas! My address is.... Just kidding! How about a flower car..... Or you could make it a now day version of a limo, with the backend interior changed to have seats, T.V., a wet bar.... Or you could turn it into a funeral home limo.... Or you could turn it into a monster truck..... Or, how about a '60s style drag racer.... Or you could carve off the back end of the body, and mate it to the front clip of another car, like a Corvette, a Jag, or even a Lamborghini....Or you could go compleatly wild, and turn it into a custom show car.... The possibilities are endless! Let us know what you plan on doing!

Well, the custom show car have kinda been done, and I dont think I could add anything to it that someone havent done before me.... And I dont wanna start cutting it up.... I wanna keep the body as a hearse. ALthough I am thinking some custom stuff though, just trying to collect ideas here.... Was thinking of a old and rusty hippie wagon made in the 60`s, and have been sitting in some smalltown junk collectors yard for the past 30 years..... Heeck, I have really no ideas (or too many, yer choice Tongue ) All I know is that the idea about sending it to you is out of the question Tongue LOL!

Ok, dont tell me, I overdid it Tongue I do get carried away sometimes.... Hopefully with a coat of flat paint and the chrome trim it will loog better!

Got some more of the weathering job done.... It`s really all about faded paint, dirt and rust.... Was thinking of making some rust holes too, but dont think I will in case I decide to restore it sometime in the future..... ANyways, getting moved on, and it`s looking great so far..... Only one problem: I have no idea what to do about the landau roof, since I dont really know what happens to it over age Wink Any good ideas?

It looks really awesome! I saw a thing about weathered roofs somewhere.... It said something to the effect of taking some masking tape, making it look torn and weathered.... I'll see if I can't find out something about it for you.

Think this side is pretty much done, except for the chrome and weathering the chrome.... And the landau roof of course.... ANd a mock up, like the wheels dang good for that look, just weather those a bit too Wink

Check out the hearse build I have going in the "Street machines" forum. It's titled "Corvette purists and kit collectors look away, it's now a HEARSE!" I think you'll get a kick out of it!

Have been working on projects today.
Recently bought 3 JoHan ambulances but only one had good decals.
Scanned the good one. Used that as a pattern & redrew.
One decal film holds 15 copies.

Also working on casting "missing" parts for building Heavenly Hearse as stock. While some Heavenly Hearses (apparently) have hearse interiors the one I got had an ambulance interior. I also have a Gold Cup hearse with the missing parts. It would have been cheaper just to build the Gold Cup. Looks as if it will take 3-4 pounds to RTV rubber (at nearly $30/lb) to make the molds. I'm considering offering a kit on including the hearse tub, casket and church cart. This is not an advertisement. I have none for sell yet and if I do will sell elsewhere.

I must like multi tasking. Currently working on two 59's, two 66's (ambulance and hearse each), two Ferraris and a Rolls-Royce.

dont have so much more progress on them but i can post some WIP pics of the Hearcedes...


this is what i started with...a old Mercedes from....i think it was JOHAN.


i cut the back portion of the body off and replaced it with parts from a scrap body i had laying around. the extension of the rear fenders are from a Corvette.


since the engine now will be in the back i scratch built a coffin of styrene sheet that will be in the front...

right now this one is resting for more inspiration and parts...for now i think it is way more fun to build Kustoms...but some day....Shy
