I am leaning towards the higgins tank. I had a vision of a strait bar build for the teal tank, but who knows its page 1 and things always change it does have a sweet bell in side it

Re: Another Spaceliner

I love how you McGuyver'd everything together for the mock ups! A little piece of a hanger here, a rim strip there, maybe some bailing wire and bubble gum over here.. Classic!!

Re: Another Spaceliner

well I got all the blasting on the parts done and striped the frame a a little more then I found some pretty bad rust. this changes my whole vision and now I am at a bit of a design cross road
*A . I rechrome the frame
*B. I paint the frame
*C. throw in the towel and do a mid build frame change
On the bright side I did score some creme tires and found a rim set for free for the ride.

Re: Another Spaceliner

I almost forgot to share this little fender dent trick I found, Some time back I bought some wood rim shorts. I use them on a vice to bang out fender dents with a hammer
