Boy I hope you ain't pullin his chain! He's been looking for that sheetmetal forever!!!!
effin sweet ! those wishbones , axle , and backing plates look good, the hemi's not bad either , nice work !
Holy fuck!.....I don't believe it!
There's actually a BUILD thread on the first page amongst all the OT CRAP!
Right on Dreddy........some nice work going on there!
it`s gonna need a wookiee interior
Haha. I'm thinking White Tuck n Roll Nerf hide with Rancor Tooth trim...
Nope no chain pulling
i had to dig it out of the stack of shit in the shed.
Its a little pitted, but the area required is all there!!
I can't even tell you how cool that is!!! WOOHOO!!!!
Looking good Paul, glad to see you're back at it.
Nice to see there's some progress being made on that side of the shop... you gotta stake out your territory man - you're lucky cc didn't buy another rusty-ole Caddy and crowd your ass even more!
Seriously - your work looks great - can't wait to get out there and see it in person!
looks great man. I cant believe ive missed out on this build so far. I wont miss out anymore though.
Been following along and you are making hell of progress.
Paul, check out the new Rod&Custom, there is a tech on Bobby Walden, fixing the same problem area you have, below the quarter windows. Really cool tech.
I just got that in the mail today. Another awesome cover, and he does a great job! Thanks to Stovebolt I have the piece I need on the way, but I'll need some ninja skills to fit it in as flawlessly as they did. I'm learning though. Today I'm trying to figure out how to put subrails in...
Good work thus far. take lots of pictures of those subrails. I need to fab some up for my 31 as well. all the tips I can get would be much appreciated.
f%&k my old boots,what a great job!
holy crap man. I just realized that I had been to your old shop and oggled over your build. I so never put the two and two together. Came over on a Saturday night to get some '61 Caddy parts, and stayed until I could barely get past the vatoloco's at the bar next door. Is y'alls new shop on the other side of it?
Cool! How long ago was that? I'm the next building over now, Actually right next to "Club Imperial"....
Sweet car. I can't wait to see it done. You are doing an awesome job on it.
Maybe Sept-Oct timeframe. Club Imperial, ha, I couldnt remember the name.
Well folks, it's officially 2009. 2008 was great, Cammie and I got engaged and the families are going wedding crazy so I've been away from my shop the last month. Now I have a CLEAR schedule until this baby is done. Stovebolt was kind enough to send me a roof section for the drivers side, Thanks Buddy!
This is how it's sitting right now. I have to graft the wheelwell and roof piece in and then it's ready to subframe. Yeehaw.
CONTINUED ON PAGE 7
Time to get back to work Paulie!!!
Lookin good so far. I have one jeep to finish, and then I will be balls to the wall on my model A. I have about 3 months of back healing left and I should be able to do just about anything. I sure hope so, cus its only be 2 1/2 weeks and I am losing what little mind I have not being able to lift anything, twist, stoop, bend over etc etc. I start physical therapy monday and I hope I keep on this fast healing path I have been on. Keep us up to date on what progress you have made
dreddybear, I enjoy watching your buildup. by the way, is MR FORDs car (the one in his avatar) in the new issue of HOT ROD deluxe?
Awesome Paulie!!! Now get back on it and congrats man! That's great news!
Sweet! I'm heading out there tonight to try and get some work done...
Yes sir. Like Seven pages...
Plus it's got a little caption in the new Rod n Kulture...
Great project !.....I gotta see this through........
NICE work Man, as ever! Your ''A'' will on the road LONG before mine!!!
Looks GOOD 'n' straight though!
Wow man! I thought I had rust to fix... Seeing that makes me feel good. I look forward to seeing this at LSR. trying to get mine there too.
The Force be with you, it may!
