Thanks guys should have my engine back pretty soon from the engine builder!
And yes it has been a ton of metal work in this ole hot rod but has been pretty fun to work on so far the front clip is taking forever with all the tilting and smoothing done to it,
And the body panels and gaps where terrible on the orginal cars so making them just right and getting it all mocked up then i can bust the body back off the frame and start smoothing it up!
Heres a few photos of where im at now doing a little work to get the rockers the way i like them so still at it i'll keep you updated later George

Did a little metal work this evening!
Built a lil column cover to clean up the protruding column!
The V theme matches through out the car in subtle places!

Default Nice Ride

G-Body I love your car , you do nice work. I like the way you have the hood and nose to open two ways. Slick! The engine looks good all smoothed out.
