    Just thought I'd start a thread on the build of my 54 . Ive had the car since I was 16. Been working on it on and off over the years. I've had a lot of distractions and other projects get in the way but now I'm focused on getting her back in the road again. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  5. Nice car! I sold my last 54 but will do another at some time. We had a tongue in cheek group on here about 53/4s called Rockstars with Torquewrenches (long story). If you search the term Rockstar, lots of related threads will pop up.

  10. Great job on both the body and chassis. I like it, what motor and transmission are you going to use? Also what other modifications are you going to perform?

    Thanks a lot! I've got a warmed over 283 and a Muncie and that will be hooked to the 55 Chevy rear end that I put a posi in. My plan is to get it back together and drive it in primer for awhile. I will French the headlights and taillights nose and deck it, and add some more teeth to the grill. I'm thinking of painting it dark blue

  16. Oh you're very welcome . I love that you're painting it dark blue, reminds me of the LaJolla that Harry Bentley Bradley built in the late '50s.

    What are you using for primer, and gun, looks like it flowed on really well. Bob

    I used a DuPont primer. It's URO 1380s. I like it a lot it has a nice sheen to it and you can see the body work flaws easily. I have a SATA KLC RP With a 1.8 tip for shooting primer.

    Very cool ! You've got a lot of the work finished so far, once you complete it you'll have one "Monster Machine" ! Kool Kustom, my friend !!
    (NOTE: If you want to eliminate your back-up lights, Gene Winfield can supply you with a pair of "bubble lights" that will work perfectly.)
