You may have seen this primer'd 49 in the background on my workbench
I chopped this way back when I received a care package from the guys. There were two bodies. One was a  badly chopped attempt, obviously abandoned, and the other one was pretty pristine. I liked the look that was attempted, so I went after the nice one.


I figured it would be just a shell on workhorses for background material as I had nothing to go with it.
Bein]g in a waiting period on the current chopped 40, I started looking around, and found a frame that fit (kinda)


I'm working on more salvage stuff to get sort of an undercarriage on it also. This will still be a background piece for other fotos.

Going to bare metal look,  and this photo is showing 'welds' being daubed on with gorilla glue ( like Elmer's carpenter glue) with a tooth pick.

I like the idea, love the look of It already... going to be different and Inovative again.

Those welds look like my best ever attempts. If you want to simulate pigeon poop ..... I'm your man !!!!

Well, this is as done as it'll get. Intended merely as a background photo prop.

Cinder Blocks are a great choice.
