1 '70 Lowrider Gothic Princes on Thu Nov 26, 2015 2:16 pm

This will not be a kustom, not even mild, just a hand job, lol something to do, I have 3 of'em plus getting another 1-2, but this will have a super nice interior, and a kill'r paint job, open door's and trunk, kustom badges, as I get my laser ingraver/3D gradient cutter friday, will be cutting out kustom stuff, so if yer tired of paying a high price for photo etch, this will all be done using plastic, and yes I can ingrave/cut, on a tooth pick with it, I will show a few things, as I use'em on this build, Reflektionz build, and future builds.

So say hello to Dream'r







Frame is just about ready to anodize, and, well I thought the body was ready, for another coat of red, as primer, then misting a lil white to tone the red down, then  the true base coat, but, seems bumpers dont fit right, flush in the rear on the driver side, not so much on the pass side, and like WOW on the front, the chrome was removed using Dot 3 brake fluid, yes even the clear coat, right to the plastic, 24 hour dip.

Ok had to take a power nap, before this, a Lil clean up, then off to get the Billet skull grill work, then to in house chroming, thinking of losing those pumper lights, need the lic plat indent for the plate, which once pulled, it will unlock the hood, which will be spring loaded, you guys will see.

Yep using my laser cutter to cut out some celtic knots, so thought I would change the name to a more suitable name, as the graphx will be more along the lines of Gothic, so will the paint......

WOW! This is great. I love your definition of not doing custom. LOL, makes mine seem box stock.

Hey, would your cutter make the car logos, like if, I wanted to put the Chevy 327 logo on something, would it be able to do that?

Small update of Gothic Princes, checking interior fit, against door jamb, work to come, dunno which way the door's will open yet, will decide when I get the jamb work done... yes the first lip piece for the door is laser cut, doing the same for the trunk, and driver door.

Nice. Looks like you got yourself a great tool. Seems to do some of the things that were very hard to get right. Those doors are going to be cool.

Have you thought about wing doors?

LOL, yeah I have, it kinda would work, I would just have to add a post behind the A post, and another at the quarter window, or just frame in the door window, from the sill up, so yeah I have thought about it,

Actually was thinking Homicide doors, they would open like suicide doors then slide back over the rear fenders, will be using half skirts anyway, in kinda a bluesh chrome, ( I think) or purple, dunno yet, anyway....

Wow, the scissor door is a pretty cool idea, too.

The homicide door idea sounds really cool, though. Can't wait to see it.

So, can your new laser actually cut the doors out of the body?

not yet, lol

Just a mild mock up to see how the hood latch would look, I'll work and fill the front like there never was anything there, the empty spot under the core shroud will be used to place the double jointed hinge  for the hood

Thanks man, now I got something to ask you, just read the post, I would like to post the video here too.

OK, guy's, this might interest some of you, while I pull my pud on Gothic Princes, one of 2 things is gonna go down, (1) for those  who are into trick door's, I will be designing, laser cutting, and will be casting sissor door hinges in 1/25 scale, no longer will you have to buy the kit to get them, I have the kit ones, and will design from there, (2) you need to keep a close eyeball, or if ya got 2 eyeball's, out I will be doing a vid and pic's on how to hide your hinge's, but you gotta hang with me, and stay up on Gothic Princes, OK, OK, I said no kustom work, right I know, but its not kustom, just a lil relocation of a few part's, LOL, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Thank you Fletch, my intention is not to teach people to build, we all have a style, I want to just show the builder's of all level's a look threw the window, and that there is a world of ways to do kewl thing's, and that what I have to share wont cost 19.99, but that I'm willing to share, and what the builder does with the tip's, tricks, tutorial's, and the style I choose, like, and luv to build, is their's to do as they please.

Funny I have received emails and comments, from people who have said they have seen the video's and learned something new, believe me when I say this, it makes me very humble.

Thank you Fletch, thank you......

Hood latch relocation without a hitch, and hinge placement plate as usual perfect, now for clean up, blending, then a mock-up with the hood on, then off to interior, and a lil laser action.
