Rolls Royce phantom 2 hot rod.

I do a lot of thinking in bed and this has changed  quite a  bit..She  now has duallies at the rear,a somewhat bigger engine and has turned  into a hot rod - it was originally going to be a banger/dd car!

 

 

 

Ahh yes the engine,it is inhouse being a Merlin  unit of 27 litres or 1650ci......

Cool project, Nigel. I like where this is going.

Please leave it in that primer !! just a thought Nige , flip the exhausts back to front & have them with a short slash cut by the cowl . That would be deafening , obviously , but its a Rolls Rod . LOL

Top up ! Give's it a "Gangster" look.

The top down is ok too..... put Grandma in the back and tell her to "Hang on" !

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage.

   Soon to be on the bench...
