come on popo you know pittsburgh folk dont dig philly ..
thanks for the photoshops i have a set of packard lights actually so that worked out just fine!
this was the main factor in me wanting to dump the poncho and having nowhere to put the convert, but thats settled and i cant see that car anymore so im set haha
i finally made the hood fit the hole haha
felt like ages ago when i cut that bastard apart
still gotta do the right corner
thanks to geemann51 for the grill piece.. fed ex decided to jam it between the house and the steps finally got it after a month looked and saw a box jammed in the little gap
notice any similarieties? 51 ford ribbed piece and 59 caddy chrome bar
fit pretty damn nice

for thommy knocker i think my standards went up haha
about 7 hours into that...4 more ribs to go haha... finally think i got the hang of the tig with out getting pits!!
thanks again for gettin my ass in gear again guys
This is good news... Great detail work on that piece Flop.
Thats gonna be a sick grill!!! Are you gonna make it a mirror and put the lumps on the bottom too?
Haha. Sadly, no. We'll have to settle for a virtual cattle prod instead.
Dude, you are soooo lucky that you got back on track! I got people there that were on call about coming to set you straight. Also, I am planning on a week long trip to see the families and I will come find you!
I absolutely love your car and everything that you have done. You are one of the most talented dudes here on the HAMB. When you get that car done you will be well respected by the entire car community not just us.
Keep it up!
BTW...what kind of beer do you want me to bring you?
awesome work man!
Freaking Sweet and now I know the pitts dont like the phillys. The closest I have ever been to PA is driving by on the way to NY Horseshoe falls.
I'm so glad your keeping it!!

well heres the new dilema the need sectioned because the v bar is on a taper so had to take some outa the middle to keep and even 2 inches from the tip or the rib to the edge of the bar
