    Thanks for all the kind words guys! Really apritiate it. so I bought a pneumatic air block and some light weight filler and I gotta say those were one of my favorite investments yet. Me and my dad got the whole top, 3 out 4 doors, the hood and both front fenders ready for sandable primer in one long day. Wish I woulda had this stuff two or three mounths ago :rolleyes:

    49, let me know what you need to get for the front fenders. I need to check and see if they'll work on my 50 Fleetline. Mark

    Got lots done over break. Replaced rear floor pans, finish decking the trunk and did the body work for it, replaced the door catch panel that was ripped out on my door and did some more body work.

    The body work seems to never end. There's always one more thing to fix. But, the body work will get done. I shaved my trunk too, installed an electric popper and also a cable from a hood, I didn't think it was a good idea to rely on just the electric popper.

    Touché I agree with that always have a backup there's nothing worse than trying to reach through the back seat framework to the trunk lol..... :$

    You got that right its taken probably 2 times longer than I expected on the body work. This is the third time I've been "almost done" lol. And yeah I plan on running a cable too just to be safe.
     
  23. Your almost there (again) LOL

    Nice work, hope you get to the prom in it.
    I just worked over the steering box in mine.
    Since your have a doner car and the motor is out,
    you might think about it.
    Sorry not trying to add to the list.

    Took it out one last time with the old motor. Then strait into the garage and got to work. We got the old motor pulled that day and will start putting the new 235 once I get home from my wrestling districts
