1958 Ford T-Bird Convertible - Old and abonded
This model is special.
I built it years ago, paint stripping failed, that's how I aged it. I wanted "something" like a HotRod and gave it the whitewall-wheels with chrome rims and red hubcaps. Engine and interior was in nearly new shape.
But something was wrong, I didn't like it.
Then Brian (SHORELINE, WA) found the model in my shop in the first lockdown in 2020 and asked, if I could modify one or the other thing. And THAT was what was missing!
The communication was perfect - I implemented his wishes and now the T-Bird was perfect from my point of view!
I cast different wheels, weathered the interior, enginebay and lights, removed a headlight and worked on the windshield....a.s.o
The first pictures show "that's how he was" - the following ones how he is now.
At this point, thanks again to Brian! Now it is perfect and has found its place.
Like what you have done Dominik, however you should do another one as a rat look with the original wheel & tyre combo as it really popped !
Cool! Interesting to see how the wheels have changed over the years .............
Thanks mates . much appreciated
So cool. The rework on this is paying out.
