hell yeah! Car looks awesome!!
I gotta get a 33-34 three window someday.
Very nice. Feel free to post pics on my Facebook page .See address below. Looks really nice.
Love the chop - it reminds me of the first So Cal coupe incarnation
Thats money! Awesome job! Love the engine choice.
now thats how you build a badass coupe....
Excellent work! You nailed the proportions!
hey joe! its been fun seeing the transformation. pretty happy not to be picking up and moving that damn body around anymore! haha. if you dont mind i am going to post a couple pictures of the seat and interior progress. i am rex, the guy he mentioned in the first section of the thread for those of you who don't know me.
Rex does awesome work if anyone in southern California needs upholstery work done.
That seat is nice! What about the gas tank - how is it set up?
Great 34 build! Nice work!
Looking forward to seeing it around town some time.
ss34coupe- the tank is a model T, and is located in the trunk. I'll post a picture soon
damn, how did i miss this? Damn nice hot rod. Can you post bigger pics for us old peeps?
This makes me really want to run chrome steelies on my coupe.... Did you weld them yourself after they were chromed?
Thanks, we want to see everything you have done in this great build!
Too late. I dig your coupe so much I used some of your pics on my webpage.Looks so good.I'm inspired.
Brady1929- I will try, I'm not sure how to do it.
Skatermann- I took the wheels to a shop in LA to have them welded back together. They had a machine to set the wheels up to weld them balanced. I cant remember their name, but if you want I can dig for their contact info.
Curbspeed- Thanks for posting those pics for me. I'm not on facebook anymore so I couldn't do it. By the way you guys have a great club, lots of nice coupes!
brady1929- I think if you click on the pictures it opens up larger ones. Let me know if I'm wrong, thanks
Sorry I missed your question. Wilcap make the adaptor plate, it bolts up nice.
Sooo freekin sweeet!!!
Man, you totally Nailed it!!....Coupe looks badass, But I can not figure out why it looks better in post number 6 than in post number 11 too me.....maybe because in post number 6 it is not finished and I see it finished out diffrently through my own eyes, Hell I dunno, either way it is badass goodjob.
My oh my! I love every aspect of this car. The chop, the stance, the wheels and tires, engine, the exhaust, every single one. Beautiful car. Well done.
Have you looked at Rocky's build? He has some cool ideas for garnish.molding that you might be able to utilize, and easier to find than what.you're looking for.

Absolutely stunning car, and the dedication to see it through over such a long period of time.................PRICELESS!!! Thanks for sharing the build with us. It makes for a long read but so much better than waiting out those long gaps that take place wondering if the whole thing has been forgotten or the builder has died
Rare to pull off being period correct, great stance and look, AND not look like everyone else's car! Awesome-
Thanks Keith! You guys have a great club and cars. You guys are inspiring.
