    56 Chevy big window, 79 Camaro clip, rear-end.
    I bought this 56 with a camaro clip. Sadly the clip wasn't done right, so the guy cut the firewall all up to compensate. This affected the leg-room inside the cab. It's a real tragedy.

    So I stopped driving it when the electrical system burned up (no fuses). Just started pulling stuff out (front clip, interior, etc). I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with a fatman frame and make a smooth firewall. I'll have to cut and rebuild the firewall though, as it was severly modified.

    I completely cleaned off the dash. It will have the heat and air controls where the left ash tray hole is, and the rest of the dash will be smooth. All the switches will be above the windshield. I am using little bitty toggle switches to run relays. My design has about 6 relays in it, so I can control large current with just a bitty switch.

    Going to be a metalflake dash with perl and half-circles (fish scales) done with an airbrush.

    Right now it is turquoise, but it was a barn paint job, and it is in severe distress. I want to do something wild, but not sure what yet.
