Ok, so I realize this car is not getting done very quickly, but I did take one step forward with the three hours I had to dedicate to it this weekend. I need to radius the rear wheel wells to get the Torque Thrust/Cheater slick combo I want to use to fit. If I was a better fabricator, I'd cut and roll the fender lip or weld in conduit, or something like that, but since I suck - I took another route. I went to my local Pick A Part yard with my Sawzall in hand, and cut the wheel lips out of the front fenders of a 70s-80s Volvo 240. I always thought the curve looked about perfect, and the lip will blend in real well with the factory fender reveals on a '55-'56 Fairlane, although this would work great on a '55 Chev too. I don't think this is an original idea, but is sure as hell is going to work well. Here are some pictures of the mock-up; next comes cutting the fenders to match, then trimming and spot welding in the patch panels. Total cost - $28. Just thought I'd share this idea with my fellow Gasser Hambers out there.
