The beauty of moving the truck -- I got a FAR better shop -- and my daughter lives in Austin. Double trouble.

Ken -- it's absolutely amazing how this shop has just plowed forward with not only the job at hand - but their ideas.... They totally grasp the fact that I want to daily drive the truck - but that I am also willing to do "practical" hot rod touches when they make sense.

So far this experience has been equal to working with Roy Brizio on the '33. There is weekly real progress... great ideas... no excuses... and top quality workmanship.

It should be a hoot taking it on the Hall of Fame Tour 2018.... and I'm going to plan to do one or maybe two more of those if Ed will promise to not let Charley sign up. LOL

Can't wait to see the color on this thing Greg and watch how all of the fellers will regress and say how good and bad a$$ it looks after being a nonbeliever.

Grey with caramel and dark brown? Black with texture and stitched highlights!

Got to post a few more updates that Charley needs to approve before we can move forward......



OKAY --- let's get goin' !! LOL


Remember the rear fenders that were so bad Pinkee's couldn't use them - so they instead mounted Fiberglass versions???

Yeah..... Well they're on the truck now.....


https://lateral-g.net/forums/attachme...1&d=1510600583







We/They (CHRA) hid the coils -- and this is how they did the holes for the plug wires to come thru.... this is a closeup of the inner fender.... Gotta love little details - even if it's going to be a daily driver!




https://lateral-g.net/forums/attachme...1&d=1510600583







This is the headlight trim chosen --- NOT the headlight! That is just a placeholder..... going to use blacked out Harley lights. I chose the standard trim ring (simple ring) over the DELUXE trim which is far larger.....






https://lateral-g.net/forums/attachme...1&d=1510600856










Given the stance --- they thought they might have to "C" notch the chassis - but as it turns out - they just had to remount the upper shock.

Th 39 headlight rings are so much better than 40.

I have never not notched the rear of a 35-40 frame and nobody in the history of hot rodding has ever said "That extra inch and a half of rear suspension travel sure does suck."

Agree on the headlight rings.... I like 'em just simple. They're not the focus of what I want people to look at. LOL


They were going to notch the Roadster Shop chassis --- then did some work and found it didn't need it to get full travel and the ride height where it sits.

It's looking good Greg. I couldn't make a body panel straight with filler and paint they make it look perfect in bare steel. Very Nice work.
