The Jalopy Journal
Sweet car. I've been on the hunt for a 64 for years.
I would either ditch the scoop or shave the trim.
Come on Willie, you don't have to be a gold chainer to know what this is.
I don't concern myself with the feelings of rat rodders.
I hope you don't think I was bad mouthing the show. Looks like some great cars there.
I was commenting on the last 5 or 6 pics. It's hard to...
That Stude truck is embarrassed to have it's picture in between those shit heaps.
I always use a 4 1/2" 60 grit flap disk. And a dust mask and shop fan blowing across the work.
Sometimes a stiff putty knife will peel it off...

Saw this little honey at a recent show.
Put it on. I've never not done it. It may not be critical but it won't hurt anything.
It only took me 6 years to do this.
Picked up this project in trade for some carpentry work. All original drivetrain runs good. It was lowered...
