    I have been posting some Progress photos of various Custom Cars in the Random Custom Car photo post in the past.
    But lately there are are some really neat Custom Car projects in the works and shared on Facebook.
    So I figured its time to start a new thread about these great in progress projects photos that are being shared.

    Lets start with a 1940 Cadillac Coupe belonging to a friend of Tom Franzi’s that is getting chopped by Justin Gajefski in Ca. The owner is from Germany and Tom, who is currently visiting CA to oversee the work getting done on the Caddy.

    Tom also took some pictures of an very interesting 1949 Mercury 4-door Justin Gajefski is working on. Tom travels from Germany to California from time to time and Justin is teaching him metalwork. For example the Buick door tops on the Mercury are his work on the drivers side…

    All of them are Great Rik.

    Like I have said in the past. There seems to be more customs being built then ever before.

    Or maybe it’s just the internet…………:)

    Excellent idea. Love early forties GM C-body customs and that Cadillac looks awesome. The Mercury’s are not bad either.

    Few more photos of the progress on the 1940 Cadillac Coupe

    From Justin Gajefski…

    “Chopped Caddy! 1940 Series 62 Cadillac were doing at JG Design & Fab. Took 4″ out of the front pillars and laid the roof down until it had the flow we’re looking for. We pushed the rear side window opening 2″ back to keep the window proportioned.”

    Jefferson Bryant is working on a Custom Lincoln and has created a really great looking windshield for it.

    “Single piece flat glass like the original with duvall-esque curves. I have a couple of months in this piece, it is the focal point of the build. I feel like the original had no character, so I took the biggest issue and made it the focal point.”

    Nice to see a few really exciting builds underway. The Caddy looks great.   I’d love to know how heavy that brass screen frame on the Lincoln is.

    Ross Galitzky is the new owner of Chris Baker’s chopped 1940 Mercury Sedan that was chopped by VooDoo Larry and friends at a car show some time ago. Ross really loved the car and has done some more work on it… Hope this one will get some paint and nice wheel covers. I really love the shape of these chopped sedans.

    From ‎Justin Gajefski‎

    A few updates on our 40 Caddy. Wasn’t pleased w our 2 piece sail panel previously built so scrapped it and went back at her in 1 piece. It’s all in the template and knowing how to read that. Sail panels are now shaped and tacked in. Banged out the wing windows last week also.
