    I know everything has been said but still...you are an artist, craftsman and a hell of a builder! That is the most impressive kustomizing I have ever seen. You just went for it and made it happen. This is a fantastic creation. Nice work man.

    A car that striking should have shiny chrome, a R&P interior and glossy paint in my book... It's just so beautiful of line. Few cars ever built are proportioned and laid out so nicely. I'm in AWE!

    No Joke man, it is crazy how much you have accomplished in such a short time. You must not be married. It took me two weeks to replace the passenger side cowl patch on my 27 t coupe. I am jealous of your time, the price you paid for your car, and your progress. Keep it up man, you make us all want to get more done.....

    um yeah um ............never mind wow
     
  10. the only porblem with bare metal is every month you have to spray wd-40 on it to keep it from rusting.
     
  11. Wow, those rivets fooled me. I got really bummed, because I love this car so much, and I thought you took it a step too far. But that's way cool man, bravo!

    Really nice. Wish I had those skills.

    You going to spray that with a clear coat, just to protect the metal until next year ?

    I ran my exhaust out the olds grille bar but have plans as I find them for some old 50's corvette tail lights for the car.

     
  16. Wow, lookin' nice Brent! Been watching the whole process, and am floored everytime I see more pics! Was hoping to see it at WOW the other weekend, too bad they couldn't get you in. And damn, Ian threw down some nice lines! Can't wait to see it in person....

    I ran across an old magazine of mine with a '50 Olds using the '58-'60 Vette tail lights. I'll try to scan and post a picture tomorrow. Heading to work right now. These tail lights aren't cheap, even in rough condition.

    Here you go. The '58-'60 Vette tail lights perfectly follow the contour of the fender top. I'd like to see a photoshop of these lights on your car. I think they would go well with the chopped longer top of the sedan and the de-humped trunk lid.

    digging the car, photochopped those lights on it. It does look pretty snazzy.
    No offense to the builder and his taste of course.

    Sorry man, I'm new and should keep my mouth shut, but I like the original much better. I like the way the car flows, including the hood. The man is gifted. Keep in mind that I'm a no-body giving you an average persons perspective, but once in a while it's good to hear a fresh point of view. Your picture takes the character out of the car.

    Ever time I get on this thread there is more to look at with this car. Badd ass!, I have to grow a set of ball and try this, you make it look so easy. Killer job on the car and can't wait to see it in paint next year.

    Made a skirt for the car but didn't dig the look visor not a chance have a hard enough time seeing lol.

    So put a couple hundred miles on the car already and no major problems just a bad bolt on the upper control arm so i'm really pleased with the car and the ride.

    I'm at the Rodorama this weekend if anyone is bored and wants to come by and chat look for the guy with a cowboy had and the Riff Raff jacked or shirt on and say high.

    This is off the chart!

    So how did the clear over the metal hold up?

    Nice build and I learned a lot from your work. Not that I will ever attempt a build like that but fun to know how its done. Awesome built and all the kudos I can give for all this visual information.
