    My 62 soon after I first got it.


    After Donnie did the first flake and candy job on the roof.





    Macro shot of the flake.


    Pic Harry took with our first plaque. 2007.



    Bags before the rear was re-done. Air over leaf. Had a rake.


    Laid out with the new 2 link/panhard. Low as fuck. It would teeter on the unibody frame.



    On 14x6 reversed.


    Lace panels that Donnie added.


    After I sold it to Gavin.

    Air over leaf. Home made brackets. The same setup that was on Craig's old Bird(the redish one with a gray top). His had about the same rake as mine. I think his brackets were different. But I know his was air over leaf too.

    That rake doesn't look bad at all really. I might go that route since I'm sure I can save a few bucks.

    Mine’s been completely neglected lately, but here it is-

    Wearing Cragars for now, the Fentons leak

    A pair of front fenders gave their lives for the radius on the rear


    Here’s an interesting brochure from a 3 in 1 custom kit-

    Hey Rob, how did you make those translucent headlight lens cover things?

    Just used some plexi I had lying around. I made cardboard templates, then cut them out of plexi with a cut-off disc, heated them with a heat gun enough to bend them up, then misted them with a real light coat of off-white paint. I was gonna etch them by sandblasting, but the paint worked well enough. It's not highly finished show quality work, but it gets the desired effect.

    I'd eventually like to make a pair that fits better like the model brochure, but these work for now.

    Damn, Robb! I've never seen the front of your Bird before. That front end treatment is way cool!

    I think this is Mario's Bird before he got ahold of it...

    Thanks, Bob. The front overrider and lower bumper were smashed, that inspired the pan. Thinking of changing it up- keeping the lower pan but making a small tube grill cross between the lights. We'll see.

    Mario's is one of my favorite Tbirds out there right now, hope he chimes in with some recent pics.

    There was lots of talk about the dark blue Bird with the Starliner roof before. It sounds good in theory, but it looks like crap with the mile-long passenger compartment.

    Odd that there are so many bullet birds with Wide Whites, too. I can dig them on Lincolns, but not so sure that they work on the Tbirds.

    That would be sick, Robb! Do you work on the car pretty regularly? Or is it more of a back burner thing?

    When you see the Bird with the Starliner top from certain angles, it looks great. But you're right, the proprtions are all wrong. I think that if they had shortened the roof and chopped it a tiny bit, it would've looked a lot better.

    X2 on the tire comment.
