Your thread is inspiring. Just heading out to do some work of my own now.
i cant move closer till this car is done! haha, i wish i was closer, i really appreciate the help, maybe it wouldnt take a whole month to complete half a panel and mock up another. i often feel like i should be the one handing you the tools and whatnot.
The car is coming along very well man and the progress is amazing....Keep it up!!
thanks guys, i gotta get some real pics. i will be so stoked to just have the catwalk area and c pillars done.
i always find good ways to turn an 8 hour job into a 20 hour job.
dont know how i missed this one! great work,, and all you have posted really does help us out who are still learning...thanks for sharing! john
hah! thank you, but i am still learning myself! glad something useful has come from this experiment.
Love this build.
Did you make the lower axle trailing arm / shock brackets ?
awesome!!!! Fantastic work
Off-topic: R U using a BB/Smartphone to take pics? Might try cleaning the lens. My pics where looking like that until I did - what a difference!
Man you must have all the cool tools.........and know how to use them. Nice work.
Damn man! You're rockin on this one, great work!
thank you, and yes, i made everything with the exception of the adjustable bar ends/bushing for the rear suspension from scratch
the smaller pics were taken using my jalopyphone, verizon voyager? im a cheap bastard and i refuse to pay for a smartphone. thank you though i will try cleaning the lens. i bought a nikon coolpix L24, and havent quite figured out how to use it yet. pictures can make or break a build thread and i have done all i can to destroy the integrity of this one.
Thank you, i have a few tools, been saving and searching for deals, but most of the stuff i make is done with hand tools and basic head-scratching. i just got my first set of torches for christmas this year if you can believe that!
okay enough of my dumbass. thanks for the positive comments everyone, i am working towards having new pics up and hopefully they wont be totally redundant and uninteresting. that in itself should be quite an accomplishment for a build-thread on a custom 53-54 chevy these days.
its too late to find a better way out of this.
Im interested to see how this comes out. Great work, man.
Incredible build so far!
This is just nuts, love your work. Subtle chop looks spot on, how much did you take out? 2"?
thanks! yeah it was 2" at the b-pillar.
I am so impressed with the work some of you guys do!
...I'm still blown away! And thanks for posting all the updates - very inspirational!
Turning out awesome!!! Were you in Detroit this past weekend?
thanks, i really appreciate it, progress has been real slow lately, but im starting to get back into it and regain the feeling in my fingertips.
and jeffreyjames, no i didnt make it to detroit. last time i was there was 07.
x2 incredible craftsmanship!
Ahh just wanted to make sure I didn't forget to introduce myself since I was hanging with the WNY crew all weekend. Perhaps next year.
So you are mounting the gas tank to the frame? You're not going to also attach it to the body, are you? Because that will put a lot of stress on those parts as the frame and body try to move separately from each other. That's why gas tanks are mounted to the trunk floor, not the frame, on most cars (including '53 Chevrolets).
Wow subscribed!! Proportions are awesome on the 54 keep working major fab work is almost done...
Man what an awesome build!
