ok here we go
we built this off the back of the house up the coast

we have just finished a pad for the 2 new 25000l water tanks ,fitted a fire system, painted the whole house , finished 120sqm of deck and tiled the laundry and fitted a new toilet. just the bath room to go and the house is finished.
ok after that mouth full , picked this pair up from qld for a mate


as you can see they need some work, 1938 chev coupe ute rear quarters and guards
picked the best one and piked it together enough to make a pattern off

the guards are going on a trailer ,they both need the last 12" replaced ,so I made 2 of them
started like this

then this

then check with the flexible pattern I made like this

after a bit of wheeling I ended up with the twins

as all ways if you guys have any questions just ask and I will try and answer
Cheers Gav
