    Wonderful save brother, you are one of the brave souls that has the balls to go for it and make lemonade out of a lemon. This is one of my fave rides, I had a 38 standard tu-door that I loved. It was my first v/8 after my 33 Chevy six. Good going bro. ~sololobo~
     
  25. Looking real nice. The sedan windows & B pillars are setting up a bitchin' look.
