  6. Hope you keep your garage gnomes well fed and warm. Looks like they'll be grinding on all those welds for awhile. wow!

    haha,,,yup,,,,i really did,,,considered quads (58 lincoln), but in the end i liked these best,,,BUT i have plans for them,,,,they wont be completely stock looking of course..

    lol...most people can't..

    yeah, , ,the GRINDING, , ,definitely NOT looking foward to that,,and i thought the welding was tedious,,,,:eek:

    definitely getting closer, but still quite a bit.

    i save everything matt, , ,seriously, i have a big pile of scrap, , , i especially save stuff with compound curves..

    Man that car is just outstanding. It has a Metz feel to it big time.

    I'm just worried that you're going to have it finished and painted and realize there was something you did on one side that you didn't do on the other. :D :D

    Keep up the good work!
