    Paint came out sick. Sleeve bags should be fine if nothing touches them, no high heat or running fast valves. I've never been a fan of them but I'm told by rudders they ride great.

    I remember doing all the stainless on my car, it sucked.

    Your car is full on rad, tits and gnarly. Get it done and we can drive around and scare old ladys.

    -Abone.
     
  17. Thanks Abone
    I can not wait to be able to drive this car. I been waiting for 6 years now. I may hit you up when I start the electrical so you can come by and look it over
     
  18. I been drooling for years now lol
     
  19. Looks good. My metal work just got done on my 49, now getting the body work done and wishing I had enough money to chop it. Maybe in a few yrs I will.
     
  20. Got some more work done. Got chrome completed thanks R&D Finishing for the great job. Also thank you Ron @Classic Instruments for the dash. It turned out great too. Got a date with Art at Rod Designs @1948fleetline in January to get the interior squared up.

    Hi John!
    I would like to know your reference color paint? Or is it a custom-made paint?
