    New tires arrived today!!! I went back and forth a bunch on which tires to get. Finally, decided on the Diamond Back auburns with 650r16 for the back, and 550r16 on the front. The wheels are getting powder coated and should have them back in a couple days. Can’t wait to see it sitting on the right wheels!

    Got the wheels back and the tires mounted. Really happy with the new look!

    Got a few pictures from my friend who is doing the body work. There was a lot of bondo and fair amount of brass, but it’s exciting to see progress!!! The color I’m going with is a Ford color called silvertone gray.

    Yeah, it was a real mess. There was brass and then bondo on both sides, not a lot of metal was left down there. It's well on it's way to being solid again!!!

    It's hard to be patient. Got some updated pictures and the T has its first coat of primer. It's moving slow, but it's moving. It has come a long ways!
