So Performance World has come and gone, we had time to chill out take a deep breath and relax, get everything back to normal. –NOW back to work! The Bootch is all together but far from done, loads of little things to get sorted from taillights, inside door handles, inside door skins, floor cover plates, engine acc, rework the sliding roof, wipers, straighten out the louvers, modify the fender brackets(I think I can get it lower in the front still), find some bigger headlights, finish welding/ grinding the frame, more engine turning, etc etc –then it’s off to paint prep! We want to be driving this car around this summer so we’ve got to work fast.
Now that we were able to stand back at the show and have a good look at it -I think there are too many louvers on the side, the original had the bird on the hood side which broke up the lines a bit, I’ll wait till the handles and latches are installed before I commit to new sides. I think it should have more of a chop, but it’s easier to see what’s going on this way –or I’ll bring the hood, cowl, grill and dash up 2” hmm….TBD
I do like the big 30’s Genre –heavy, big and pimp for the time, but putting a modern twist on the style, like you’d see in a movie –League of Extraordinary Gentlemen had that white 6wheeled car or maybe what you’d expect a super villain to drive in a Dick Tracy movie or the 1939 Batman comic
