RE: PT Cruiser p/up
 
 


Ever so slowly but surely, fingers crossed, hoping to complete for this summer  biggrin,  two more pieces to shape and a few holes to fill.

I still think those '38 Dodge rear fenders would work good, with a small touch of fab.
I like'em both, Satin Black and Red Primer, maybe a mix of both. Just like the front fender in that pic, kinda "Faux Patina".

Nothing against Flat Black, But there is alot of it out there. What do you think of flat red?

Maybe some faux patina?

I think you can as well .Great job. I think you should mass produce that cab back panel. Could be a good market there with the numbers that are out there. Ed

Im starting to believe that I might actually finish this thing.  Metal fab work is getting close to being done.  Even my wife is impressed, biggrin

I think I can, I think I can...IMAG0382.jpgIMAG0383.jpgIMAG0384.jpgIMAG0390.jpg

Making Progress, SLOWLY but surely...  Still having a blast figuring it all out.

Also, I found the perfect mascot for my little rig...   Anyone laughs at my creation,  BENDER say's  "BITE MY SHINY METAL ASS!!!"

 

Think I'll hammer him into the tailgate skin.

Car shows? probably not but cruise nights, yes. Never meant for this thing to be a show car. Hell, I might dirve it every day, price of diesel is killing me. Besides, I want it like me, real rough around the edges... Funny thing is that none of my girls would learn to drive stick when this thing was just a PT, now thy're fighting over who gets to drive it when its done.

Your right Jarvis, I wish I would have chopped the roof 2", but the cab is finished and I really want to finish this this winter. This project has already grown way past the original intent, and budget... Maybe in a couple of years I'll chop it. I've got a Camaro thats going to get done right after this one is finished. Probably should have done the Camaro first, It needs a lot less work.

I always wondered why they didn't make a PT sedan delivery, like the Chev HHR.
Your project is coming along quite well. Some fine metal working going on there.
Would it look a bit better if the roof came down a couple inches at the back?

He used a sheet metal brake to bend up some bracing on the inside of the cab. Everything else he hammered out (or in...) by hand. I only managed to spend a couple of days there with him, learned a TON. I have to wait to make dust in the shop, hopefully hit some auto flea markets soon and get that box started.

IMAG0599.jpgIMAG0593.jpgIMAG0600.jpgMore updates, this is where the progress will slow down as I'm playing with a couple of ideas for the back half. Right now I think I'm gong to mimic a 37 dodge box, fenders have curve that will match the front fenders and the rest of the box is nice and simple.

Seriously "LOUD" shoutout to Ron P. for the work on the cab. I couldn't be happier... Thanks Dude

i think one of the reason,s it works is because it actually has front fenders much like a late thirtys pu

Is the "Pop" cold? LOL, I'm not a panel maker, but I'm just around the corner. I think I may just have a few things laying around that could help you move forward.
I'll get in touch with you shortly. That's a kewl looking project, and a little ambitious also.

Wow, I'm a little suprised at the number of replies...  The kids wont drive a standard, so it's my new experimental toy.  The PT with the viper motor in it is what started the whole idea, then I saw the black one and my mind was set.  I tried to contact the poster of the pics in the PT forum that Beachcat posted but so far no reply.  If anyone is ever in the Baden area, stop in for a pop, I am really interested in ideas on how to attack this thing as I am just feeling my way through it, (alot of trial and error).

I've started a picture library if anyone would like to see more.  https://drive.google.com/?usp=chrome_app#folders/0B7RPsA49QYZyOTNSWjdhblZrQzg

I'm can't go to much farther as I am trying  find someone local to help me with my panels.  If anyone knows someone in the Kitchener area that would/could help me out with fabricating of the panels, shoot me a meassage.  At the end of the day I really would like to say that I did it myself but that is maybe a little ambitous for my first project.

I like the idea of the late 40's fenders, I feel that the lines of the PT lend themselves to that era.  That will wait till spring when I can hit the swap meets and wreckers. 

 

PS,  Love Ontario Rodders Forum

 The lines on it look a bit odd !! IMO it just looks like someone removed the top rear half and that's it. Using the small 1/4 window, and retaining the original rear wheel arch I think is what ruins it. The lines are not as nice as the black one.
