1981 release of the 1956 Ford F-100 ( custom)
Posted by TimberWolf460 on Saturday, January 8, 2011 11:10 AM
Well a while back I got my hands on a badly built model of a 1956 Ford F-100. It needed a ton of work, and a lot of new parts, some of the box stock parts got broken in the tear down, and others just got ruined in the first build. most noticeable is the fact that the passenger door is no longer able to open, that is due to the hinges being completely filled with glue when it was first built. the stock bed shattered on the tear down phase, so I replaced it with a nice post and stake built from Balsa wood. The suspension was totally trashed when I got the truck, and I wasn't fond of the low height that it was supposed to sit at, so I brought the stance back to about factory. As for the rear end, well I felt that since I was modifying so much of the truck, no reason not to give it dually rear wheels. all of this got covered in primer gray, and rust, I wanted a little bit of the rat rod look, so that's what I gave it., oh and can anybody tell me how I can get my photos up on these threads, I'm new at this

A model is only a way of building a dream, without having to pay a fortune
