    I started on this car awhile ago but have been doing other
    peoples cars off & on.
    I finally feel like Im seeing the light at the end of the rust hole.

    I have replaced the bottom six inches around the entire car,
    the entire floor from the toe boards to the back seat.
    I patched both sides under the quarter windows and finally
    getting to do a little kustomzing the fun stuff. Just thought Id share.

    Car looks great. I like the way the rear end flows. Any plans to chop a few inches out of the top?

    cool design, but very poor execution on that below the trunk area. that's gonna take quite a bit of mud to finish off .

    The '49 Buick tail lights really look cool on chevy's. Here some from another thread on a Fleetline.
