How about some under the hood pics to show off those goodies you bought? Car is A++ AWESOME!
WTF!? Wait a second, what happened to that paint!
Looked pretty damn good above, but I see it flaked off in pretty big sheets, so maybe not prepped too well and redoing it better now? Crazy, it looked pretty damn sweet in the photos before.
what are you doing to it now???
Green over Grey
The paint was good before just rushed didnt even change the window gaskets so.... I was ready for some change and here it is......gonna change up some other small stuff also
I love your car. It was an inspiration for mine. The plan was to go all green. But then I saw yours. I did not want it to look like I copied yours, so I changed my mind. There was a pic hangin on my shop wall of your car as a matter of a fact. Anyway, looks cool. Can't wait to see pix of it in the sun.
Looking great!! Can't wait to see her assembled and in the sun. Nice job!
Thanks a lot fellas means a lot when y'all both got killer rides!!
She was sexy before, but I am really diggin the darker green. It doesn't have as much "pop", but adds a ton of class!
cant wait to see it in its new shade, Love the merc spears on the side, got those 4 my ride as well.
Man that colour is Sweeeeeeeeet!,are you goin to run any skirts in the future???
how much did length you add to the headlight tin?... that last shot really shows it off like a mofo
Around 2in just enough to bring them out to the peak of the hood. Thanks for checking it out. Also no plans for shirts I think the body line of the car is pretty fat and the chrome and whitewall break it up just enough.
Cadillac hubcaps on sorry for the artsy edit my iphone settings are messed up
soooo cool, loving the new paint just as much as the last paint job!
The new caps look bad ass bro.
who did the seat covers
I want ur old chrOme smoothies!!
Been running around with Trent Sherrill again
This car gets me everytime I see it. Its sick. But is it just me, or does the top sprear look a tad off? Looks like the tail end of it is jjust a bit off. Not that it takes away from your car, but everytime I log onto my computer, I see it. (Your car is my desktop background, thanks)
As always, sweet car.
Lotsa changes & it looks like plenty of miles in-between to figure out just what you wanted to do next, ...great way to go! That's the old fashioned way. My current project is a straight thru start to finish deal, and I remember when I look at yours that I'm missing out on some of the fun by doin' it that way! Your latest edition is Sweeet, Nice Ride!
Love the new color!
Rocky,put down the PBR! it's the one in the middle, the front is up too high where the rear of the spears are almost equal distance apart.The car is flat out awesome!I still want to see whats under the hood looks like since I helped with tracking parts.
that dark green just makes it, also I love 53 sombreros so this end result had me at hello.
Screenz you are the man, after talkin with you in Salina I've never been so pumped up to work on my 54. Thanks for all the help!
Mann that is one sweet ride!!
