    In the booth last night kind of an inside joke the tow monkey was guarding my car. Long story....

    Two coats of high build primer applied one sore shoulder doing it myself priceless! This has been a great fun build and know the finish line is near.

  4. I am thinking I might let my father in law drive it to the nationals so I can take both my truck and the 37 we will see what happens. Thank you for the comment I appreciate it. Have a Great Day Hobo Jim

    Hey Jim, The car is lookin great. I don't post much but I have been following along since the start. I stop by your truck at the Nationals to meet you but you must be walking around. Maybe this year.

  12. I have been making steady progress on the body it’s looking good and getting closer to being ready for color. However it will not be ready for the nationals. I believe that you should take your best to the nationals so I will be proud to drive my 56 Dodge truck! Hope to see everyone there! Hobo Jim

I got paid from a side job at the sheet metal shop so I will be shooting color very soon stay tuned for some real updates! I also have been fabricating some floor mats in my style that I really like, I just haven’t taken any pics but I will have them done soon. Hobo Jim

    I also finished the floor mats I really like the look they are made out of aluminum with two inch dimple dies and a black leather heal pad.

    Looks like everything is coming together. Someone is going to have to clue me in on the wide white flex seal trick. Wonder if you can make 2 inch wide white walls

    Try prepping with break parts cleaner then put a fine wire wheel on a drill to scuff the tire just enough to scuff it that’s all I’ve done and have over 1500 miles on them this year so far.

  27. The cream is done! Came out Great I will be painting the green tomorrow. After all the work it is really nice to see the final color going on the car. This is the first car that I’ve painted it is really satisfying doing all the work on this car myself. Here are some pics of the cream.

    After three hours of taping it finally has color!

    I am not sure if I’m keeping the red wheels I have to see them with the green although I love red wheels they may not work on this car, tomorrow will tell. I am really looking forward to seeing the green and I can’t wait to spray it!
