Now I can't wait to see it back together!
Looks great. I agree with Phil; can't wait to see it back together!
Whadda hoot! Can't wait!
Great SHINY paint.
The car is almost done getting buffed. One more round of polishing to go. We’ll get it back Monday to start putting it back together.
Car looks considerably smaller now. Looks great, though!
The flow of that roofline reminds me of Coles 54 Chevy. Phot from Kustomrama
Soooooooo friggin sick. Love the color.
It does look great! Fucking awesome, actually ....
Psssssss...the sound of the body dropping 2 or 3"...I'm just envisioning every tactical move making it all come together...
Yes, high fives to @DRD57 and the Paint Team...stunning workmanship indeed...
Paint Jail...naaaaw more like a Paint Spa...the Ole Cars probably saying to itself looking in the mirror 'Oh Man am I HOT!!
The Art of Custom is truly great to witness...Thanks to all involved in bringing this to our front row seats...
The roof and window lines are similar in character. When you see Cole's car, you think "That car is CHOPPED." I don't think that my roof will elicit the same reaction, though.
It's perfect. Personally, I don't like a heavy chop on a shoebox. A Merc? Yeah. But yours is just right.... Suits the line perfectly.
Yeah, his is heavier but I think both chops/roof lines are PERFECT!
The wiggle room to get a pass...there is a fine line with out question...
Looks so good!
The car's at Sid Chavers' this week, getting its new headliner. Then back to Don's for glass, the remaining trim, and the interior re-installed. Not too much left to do!
This is the reason we come here.
Thanks and cool
I'm not sure, Bill. I've had my cars in the GNRS three times, and each time it's been such a hassle that I've said "never again". I'll wait 'til the car's finished to make the decision.
Sorry, I assumed that you were talking about indoors; I definitely was. If I don't, I'll probably do the drive-in.
Nice. Looking forward to seeing the finish on this one.
Wow that is beautiful.
I hope we'll be seeing the glass and trim in place next week. Impatient!
Atta boy, Tony and Don. This is quick and kool. How many shops do that.
@50Fraud found this photo on a random site with just a bunch of photos.
Wow, loving this build.
Is that piece of wood stock? Wondering if Ford was still using wood to attach headliner in the 1950s. Car looks fantastic.
No wood in the '51 Victoria. There are several round rod bows (boughs?)
