    With some motivation from "various" people, I decided it was time back in 2008 to look for a solid 61 convertible...

    Well, with one "Wanted" thread and 2 weeks, I hooked up with Phil (VEGASPHIL) and bought his 61 rag out of L.A.

    The car had a lot of things done to it already that I was looking for, minus a wrapped frame, setup, system and some other goodies







    From pick up to drop off I had the car delivered here in the Detroit area in less than a week...

    Right after making the deal, I knew I needed a frame and Tommy (SYXFOUR) was already having one wrapped, so I bought it...



    Originally, I was only planning on grinding it down a little bit and painting, patterning and leafing it, but that idea was quickly scrapped in favor or fully molding it.

    You forgot to mention the main kick in the ass to buying the ace. The guy who told you "DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THOSE COST"

    After molding, sanding, priming and repeating for what seemed like days it started lookin SMOOTH...







    Before I go any further I should probably make a few statements...

    1) I didn't build this car myself. It was my money and ideas that made it possible, BUT it was Jimmy (SHOWANDGO), Tommy (SYXFOUR) and the rest of the crew at SHOW & GO that made my dream car a reality. Without them, I would have NEVER taken on a project like this.

    2) Sorry for the shitty quality of my pictures.. Progress was made realllly quickly and I wasn't able to get down there every day to take good pics as much as I would have liked..

    With that said... It was time to pick colors for the frame...

    Listening to ideas from everyone, I decided to paint the frame to match the interior color which is kind of a light silverish copper color. The interior of the car is a stock pattern, but was made using boat vinyl, so it could stand up to the heat, wear and tear, etc.

    So as the interior color was matched to be used as the main color, I decided to do all the patterns on the frame the color of the car itself.

    Jimmy laid down the base color (color of the car) and it was time to start patterning...

    I look at these pics now and it's crazy how much work goes into doing these frames and you don't see that much after it's done...

    Looking damn good man. Can't wait to be done molding my frame and get to the paint stage!
    Pride is the sign of a foolish man.

    Firm believer in letting my cars do my talking!

    You can't rush quality, it doesn't happen overnight. Quality takes time and dedication, but the end results more than pay for it.

    This was probably one of my favorite parts of the build...

    Jimmy had never done any turned leafing and I really wanted it, so I bought him some leafing supplies and a DVD...

    I think he practiced for about 10 minutes before he did this...

    So back to the pics!

    Thanks a lot...

    It was definitely one of my favorite parts of the build. The ONLY pic I never really got to take was a real good one of my roller before we dropped the body back on.

    Oh well... Maybe the NEXT one...

    I'm about to start helping one of my dudes mold his frame for his 64... Cant wait!
