    This is a great thread. Your drive and persistence should serve as inspiration for anyone building a car. I was reading along and got to the point where you found the trunk rust. Your reaction is classic, "This is going to be some work". I would have added a couple other choice words! Way to go. I subscribed!

    Awesome thread, hope you're still comming along. I have a 52 Chevy, not nearly as cool as yours will be though.

    What did you do with the 52 parts car you bought? Would you sell the grill teeth and maybe some of the other trim off of it?

    Oh boy I hope you have stock in Rolocs that's a grinding ahead of you!!! Hahaha!!! Looks awesome though. Love the way those lower quarters match the bumpers like that.

    The details in your pics are great! It gaves a really good idea of the time and work that go in to a full custom car. Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to the completed project.
