    Now you gotta know I'm a whole lot tougher to beat than Richard Rawlings and you ain't beat him yet! HAHA!!.... (yes, I'm a bastard I know :D)

    Can't wait to line up with the "Tank". That would be a good matchup!

    Any local folks have a bead roller they would like to practice with? I rather not buy one from Harbor Freight for such a small job, that and I have never used one. Just would like to put a few rolls in the lid of this tranny tunnel if possible.
    I'll supply the beer!

    So John,let's see some pics!
    Was the Eastwood bead roller something you would use to do the whole interior, or would you only use it for smaller jobs?

    Hey Dirty John, I just stumbled across your build thread. Looks like your project is coming along well. I understand staying with the 'glide. Stick cars are more fun to watch (and drive, I'm sure) but the PG is much less pricy for us poor boys. Hope you have enough time to get the '56 ready for the 2014 season. It would be cool to get together at the Meltdown.

    Luckily the doors are already skinned in bead rolled aluminum. Going to use this to just do the lid on the tranny and whatever else pops up. I haven't received it yet but I'll post pics once its here.

    Powerglide definitely makes sense in this case. If there were a stick shift class then I would do it, but unfortunately there just isn't.
    I won't be making it to Meltdown John, but I will come to Oklahoma just as soon as it's together. Let me know when your thinking about coming to Noble etc and we can park together.
    I think I'm going to race mostly locally for a while. I would love to watch Quain and company run each other though.
    Maybe down the road we can plan a trip to run together up North.

    I'm guessing cause they're squirrelly as shit,and a lot more of a handful to drive,making for some exciting moments for both drivers AND spectators.....
    But I'll let John speak for himself :)

    You're doing a fantastic job too Man...
    I really love the way you engineered that scoop assembly to work with the heavy engine setback,and had the presence of mind to think...."Hmmm....is my cherry picker gonna work with this thing in the road..?"
    Nice job Brother.Keep the updates comin! :D

    It works both ways Man!
    You've got lots of us rooting for you on this buildup,but you're also inspiring the shit outta myself and a bunch of other guys on here....It's really lit a fire under me to get that coupe finished and powered by M.F.V.
    Maximum Fucking Violence...!!!!:D

    LOL! Good deal. Well, I will keep slogging away and you do the same. Nothing better than old race cars...well...that's a lie but they are a close second!
