Elvis 66 Sunroof Squary for Renay

Post by Bugger » Fri Sep 05, 2008 8:27 pm

Ok thought I will start a thread on this up comming Forced into Project Not that I mind at all :D :wink:

I got an Idea of the colour Im going but any pics or sugertions out there I want to refit all the chrome bits to make a type of a Resto cal look cos the Pics that I saw these Variants do look nice with all the relevant bits of chrome replaced and Bumpers they look especially very BARE with out bumpers

Will try and take some more nice pics when I go get the goodies

What wheels are you going for? Will you be doing a disc brake conversion?
I also don't like type 3's with no bumpers -they look strange.
If it was mine, I'd go with a nice Porsche colour, lower it 1 spline in front and leave the rear stock, and a set of nice rims -maybe from an audi or something like that...

A nice metallic blue with chrome wheels and bumpers etc. Grey or white interior with some more chrome goodies inside.
The only substitute for cubic inches are more cubic inches.

I already organised a Discbrake front suspension from Eben with the Green Square who`s box I`f just done and will leave the back most probably std drums not discs

Will have to get a color chart and look that metalic blue is nice Bernard I am a one for Blue as you know
It is between a metalic or a wild solid color

I think will lower front and back I dont like the rake look much nicer low and level front and back

Eben with the Datsun- engined,replica bbs-wheeled Square? Do you have his contact details? Is that an original type 3 disc brake suspension or a conversion?
I didn't mean the rake look, it's just that all variants that i see are all sagging heavily at the back, and it's almost as if they are lowered. But check how yours is and take it from there!

Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
The cars keep going faster all the time
Bums still cry, "Hey buddy, have you got a dime?"
And the beat goes on, the beat goes on...

And here is my idea of a WICKED Type3, when finished of course

Beat that ! :shock: Now, before anyone starts to flame about not keeping it original. Bear in mind, neither you of I know the condition that this car is/was in to start with. And it is people like these, that has vision, that become(or could) the Boyd Coddington's or Chip Fooses of this world :hangloose:

PS. Even if it is a Square nose, that is the way I would like it. This guy could not have chosen a better one. I dont think the lines of the round nose one would have cut it.... :hangloose:

Yes agree- Baron that is a nice one I just prefer the chrome bumpers instead of painted

Zero that is one radical chop :shock: would love to see it when finished, is it finished or not
Check in Zero`s third pic the Squary sitting in the garage now that is basically exactly how I want to make mine similar blue and all the chrome pieces back on
