    When I first saw the pics in the post I was so jealous! I read as far as ls1 and was about to back out of the thread quietly but I flipped to the last page instead for some reason.Motor looks killer and congrats on the son!!!!
    348 or 409?

    Both inner and outer rockers replaced. Now that we are structurally strong again it's time to move on to doing the tin work in the trunk!

    Me to Matt. I can actually see the light flickering at the end of the tunnel. I'll be ready to come and see you soon for my stainless trim and window frame chopping. the paint is the easy part for me I do that all day everyday. I am looking forward to start putting some paint on this too.:eek:
     
  13. Good to see it coming together, I still have a long way to go on mine...but I'm getting there...look forward to seeing it in paint.

    Another kid means you have to build another car..........Hurry up and finish this one!
    If ya gotta run a Chevy engine, you picked the right one. Just remember to carry a few spare pushrods....They don't like cold weather starts!

    already hit my eyes open for my next build. Always gotta have a progect going. meaning toward a 39 Cadillac LaSalle coupe or a 36 Ford coupe. As far as cold weather starts guess I don't need to worry being that I live in Central California.
