Halfass Kustoms 1949 GMC Roadster Pickup Custom: Shaving Door Handles? Fixing Dents And Doing Other Door Work, Plus Welding Fenders!


Halfass Kustoms 1949 GMC Roadster Pickup Custom: Shaving Door Handles? Fixing Dents And Doing Other Door Work, Plus Welding Fenders!

In the last video, Brent finished up the tail lights and finalized the rear look of this thing. It turned out awesome, and now he’s moving back towards the front to get some work done on the doors. It has dents, needs the doors aligned with all the new rockers and running boards, and might need some shaved door handles too. Check it out and let us know what you think.

This project is one that Brent has had sitting around for some time and has just been waiting to get back onto it. It isn’t your average 1949 GMC, as it is mounted on a modified Caprice chassis and has had the top chopped off of it. The plan is for it to have a removable Carson style top, lots of custom metal work, and more. It’s going to be a full custom style ride but that means it needs A LOT of work. One thing I find funny is that while in most circumstances you want to start a project with the cleanest and straightest ride you can, but when you are building a custom that is going to get a lot of custom metal work anyway, then why not start with something rough? This truck certainly qualifies.

In previous videos, Brent pancaked the hood on this thing, modified the fenders, planned out the bumper, shortened the chassis, shaved stuff, built a one off custom bed and more. There is a lot going on with this project and a lot planned for this thing, although to say that might make you think there is a whole list of what is going to happen to it. But that isn’t exactly Brent’s speed. He works as he goes, tries stuff to see how it looks, and will cut and weld and remove and replace, until it has the look he wants. We love it and it is inspiring.
