    Can't wait to see future progress! Looking fabulous so far!! :)
     
  2. Just checking in to see the progress and it looks awesome keep the updates coming.
     
  3. Another Deuce comes back from the dead! I just came across your thread today and read every post. Congratulations on having the skill, talent and fortitude to see this one through, you are one of the few that can pull it off. I'm ashamed to say I've sold or traded off a couple of 5W's that were better than what you started with.

    Here is a little teaser pic to hold you over. Axles are just slid under the car here. Kind of a quick mock up to get an idea of ride height and stance I want. I have been collecting parts, but haven't found much time to work on it. There is a really good local show coming up the first weekend of October. Pumkin Run in Owensville, OH. I am setting a small booth up there and bringing this car. So let's see what I can get finished up before then!

    I have been working on the car for the past week heavy. Was trying to get it to look like something for a local show. Pumpkin Run Nationals. I am set up in the swap meet area selling parts and promoting the business. Here is a shot of the car and my daughter's car show stroller I have been working on.

    Thanks everyone! I wanted to make a door skin and tried. Couldn't get it quite right. Still need some practice. I ordered one from Walden. I have used a couple of them and they are top notch quality. I will be in Hershey next week, but when I get back I hope to keep the updates rolling.

    Thanks! It was great meeting you and finally checking your coupe out in person. Love your car! Too bad most people don't realize the work that went into that chassis.
