    Nah sorry no pics of the front before... But I pretty much had to cut all the way to the front & back of the pocket & the upper bag cups were offset a LiL for more clearance..

    Been daily driving the dodge for a few weeks.. Done a few small things.. temporary interior panels etc.. Just pulled all the interior trim and dash out to get some HOK brandy wine candy w/ HOK silver mini flake & a LiL pin striping... should have it all back this weekend or early next week.. While the car is down im gonna patch up some LiL loose ends and put a new clutch slave cylinder on.. Ohhh also got a LiL new ink representing the 50..

    People were loving the car out at the Rods on the Bluff show this past fri night .. There was never less than 10 people around it at any point thru the night.. Even most of the old timers were diggin it.. I probably had to start it about 15 times for people haha

    Here's a LiL better pic of the dash can kinda see the flake pics from my phone do the flake no justice at all tho it looks like a bass boat for sure

    dam nazi government over there. as long as the car is registered it shouldnt matter if the suspension looks broke. There is a diff between eye sore and broke down. By the way, I love this build. The only thing I would have done different was run a turbo set up on the original flat head. Those motors are a beast. I had a 50 chieftain that had the flathead 8 and I regret not keeping it. Make sure you make it down to Texas in april for the Lone Star Round Up. It would be a definite convo piece of the show.

    Nick looks great and keeps getting better. Seems you may have too much freetime with all the trick trinkets on it. If you get bored with the plymouth and want to come down here to trinket up a stude let me know.
