Getting started on my first low rider. 36 Ford coupe.
Posted by All_6s_and_7s on Thursday, February 22, 2018 2:48 PM

I've never built a low rider, so I decided to give a traditional style a try.

With a set of rims from a 64 impala kit I got started.

I started with a gold alclade base. kind of expensive base coat, but it was worth it in the end.

I'm trying to work out chassis details to get the 36 on the ground. I'm not quite sure I'm going to achieve that yet.

 

 

I like to work just as much as I don't.

I like the look of this one ! That candy red is sha-weet !

IMHO I would just glue the wheels to the top of the fenders and forget the chassis!! ( E-Z Life !) LOL

Or.... drop tube front & a heavily  Z'd frame .

I have a Custom 70's Chevy van (AMT ??) with working "hydraulics" - elec. motors & swing arms , it "3 wheels" or hops ! Indifferent

I might re do it as the Cheech & Chong White one...... & fill the cabin with foam bubbles  or "smoke..." cotton wool Smile, Wink & Grin

Working Hydraulics would be cool. I'm not sure I can just take the easy way on this one. It's just on in my DNA Stick out tongue
