    It's been a while since I worked on the front seat. Finally getting somewhere.

    Is that the old JC Whitney trim on your hood?
    That is hard to find!

  5. Great looking custom. Hood ornament isn't bad either.

  6. I worked out your way for awhile, cool part of town.

    Nice car. From your previous posts you have some serious upholstery skills. Good work.

    Put a new grill on, painted the upper bar, and finished making the Oldsmobile side trim fit. Need to get a better side shot.

    Hi there, are you running 15 or 16" wheel covers? And what profile tire?

    I'm building a 54 mild custom and these have the perfect proportion

    Cheers, Brendan

    Been a while but I figured I’d post an update on this car. I’ve been driving it a ton and started getting a little bored with it so I started putting some more work into it recently. I installed a Gambino c notch in the rear and lowered it some more. Added some supremes and pin whites and started messing around with some flames. Also went through and rebuilt the head as it had a broken valve guide and a couple valves were looking a little iffy. I’m now in the process of painting the flames and it will be getting some lakes pipes as well.

    I thought you sold her.
    Glad you’re getting some smiles per gallon instead.
