Pin It

Bodywork Wire FrameWith the engine running, I’ve turned my attention back to the bodywork. I’ve started the wire frame for the bodywork buck.

In the past I mocked up several designs firstly in Photoshop, CAD and wood.

Making your own car is not easy and there are several stages that need to be gone through before the final shape can be finalised. The chassis is somewhat simpler in that it’s shape and layout is somewhat dictated by the components it has to house. With the body there is more freedom for expression and what might work practically, does not work visually.

The wooden buck for this 1937 Ford Hot Rod is starting to look a little too much like a dashing 1930’s gentleman’s ride than something you’d bolt 20 inch alloy wheels to.
