    Default 1969 Wood Body Chevroolaet.

    Greetings and hellaloo.
    It's time for a build..From Wood.
    Back to my roots again, when I was introduced to the hobby by stumbling across a nice little 77 ford build By "Headquake"

    It's one that's been on the list for years to build..1969 chevy.
    I always admired "jeffro's" 1972 red and white truck once he constructed it.
    So between the two Great builders.. I'll try my hand again at constructing something close to both.
    They have both been a huge benefactor in my scratch building and Ive learned so many techniques from them.
    So a tribute to both of sorts.
    Plus..Moneys tight again and this can be done realistically cheaply for me.
    I have wood and glue...ahahaaaa.

    So grab some popcorn sit back and relax.
    And cross your fingers, and pray to the tiny truck gods for great paint, and correct body lines, and lots of fun.

    As you all know..I enjoy all comments and ideas on my threads.
    So bring em on.. Makes a build so much more for me.

    My inspiration..


    Going Long Bed and a stock look with this one.








    I'm at a good stopping point for driver side.
    It's the basics and need lots more.. But I'll tackle the passenger side now while I got a good feel for things.
    Lots of fine tuning..But that's half the fun watching the lines come around.

    Enjoy and thanks for looking.

    Well..... Needs way more rounding and sanding..
    But the other side is good and started.
    Easy stuff is about done for the sides. Might start pondering on how to make it a box now...
