    Yah it does jim :D

    The gas tank is from a 56 ford , since my car is a brookwood my orginal floor set up was excatly like your , ( i still have my orgional gas tank thats in good shape than im going to be sell here soon if aneyone is intersted pm me ) but since i have kids i wanted the 3rd row seat , so i got the whole rear floor secting plus the 3rd seat out of a 60 kingswood , so thats why my rear floor is different , i have no place to put a spair now , but in the kingswood the spair was inside the right quarter , i did the floor swap about 10 or 15 pages ago of yo0u wanted to go back and see :D

    You did a great job filling in that breather hole and matching the fins. It looks factory.

    Thanks Matthew I wish I could have left it alone and ran the breather up top i actually like it better that way but sacrifices had to be made some where:) and since the hood is sooooo close it had to be done . It's crazy as big as this car is it seems like I have no room for aneything .:eek:

    Awesome build Cody!!! Very impressive attention to detail!!!

    I just pulled my 1959 Bel Air off the frame and am starting the rotisserie fun. What type and color bedliner are you planning to spray on your floor?

    Thank you , at first I was going to try the tintable stuff and tint it dark green but then I just said forget it and decided to go with black , I'm using the raptor bed liner kit from upol , The stuff works great and I've been using it for years on customers cars also its not that expensive .

    So i spent the last two days working on the wagon , yesterday i spent 3/4 of the day sandblasting and the rest of the day blowing out the car trying to get all of the sand ,out of all the cracks and crevsis, so today i spent the say preping the bottom side , priming and then bedlining , i endedn up using the raptor beadliner from u pol for the underside the stuff works great and it reasonbile priced.
