    Damn, that's looking good Andrew. I like the front end treatment a lot:)
    Good idea on the hood pins, as it's quite true about shoebox hoods popping up:eek:
    I've seen your trick about using the pins inverted before, but it wasn't on a custom, it was on a fleet of whiskey tripper cars:eek: Didn't want the hoods flying up if they had to bust their way thru a barricabe or roadblock:mad:
    Whole family of several brothers, cousins, and hangers on that had stlls and stuff, along with cars that never saw the light of day:rolleyes:
  2. Looking great man!

  4. I like the wiring part, buy me a ticket and I'll finish up that job for you.
    I think the hood pins are your inner muscle car mullet trying to get their hands on your custom.
    Looking good.

    Damn, looks like you might "scratch that",will get down the driveway and further this year. Looking mighty good. Good call on the hood, as I too had a 50 hood fly up at 80+ mph trying to see how fast the car would go in 2nd overdrive. This was back in 1956 in a 55 Bird powered 50 sedan. Turns out the car was faster in 2nd OD than in 3rd, but cost dearly to find that out.

    Car looks really Great. I just set here and read the entire thread! I'm getting ready to start on my 50, as I just finished a 1967 Buick Electra 225 4 door hardtop for a family member. Now it's time to work on my stuff!

    I like seeing a rust bucket come together so well. It gives me hope for mine!
