    My friend David has been helping me with the 52 so I stopped by and helped him start the sex change of his 51 Chevy fenders with some ford wheel lips [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Well I got the carpet in and it's not perfect but it was cheap and will work for a few years till we actually do the interior... Did a quick spray can job on the engine bay just to get rid of that ugly color for now ... Once I get caught up on my 59 and have it finished I plan on doing the metal repair on the bottom of the body and pull the whole car apart and do it right but we just want to keep it an ok looking driver for now ... We used spray can fabric paint for the rear set and I couldn't be happier [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG] working on the passenger side headlight ...trying to get the lead roughly close to the drivers side ...I don't care if they are perfect right now just close and then when I take the fenders off in a year or so I can work on them side by side and get then perfect and do the body work the rest of the way

    Haven’t done much to the 52 just been driving her... got a hitch made and the plan before the end of summer is to have the wheel wells cut out and get her ass laid out then I want to finish the roof with a lace panel job but I’m kind of upset noticing that the flake has lost almost all of the pink tone ... Idk if this is because I only use the fast drying clear and never finished the roof ... I never put over all clear on because I planed on wet sanding and continuing the paint by doing candy pink panels with lace but now I might have to go over all of it with more flake? Or maybe just some candy because she still has an amazing sparkle to her bit lost a lot of color
