    Finally got back to work on the chevy, after a knee operation and because of being off work, was able to spend time with Watson. But now I'm back.

    My god this is gonna be killer! My only problem with it is that I couldn't afford to fill that 46 gallon beast of a tank up!

    thats going to be a very interesting custom. Incorrect wheels are one of my biggest pet peeves, but those are SPOT ON! Love it!

    Max at BioKustoms is one of the best suspension guys in the country. It is in good hands.

    More work done.
    Skirts flushed in, Steering column, Hydro Boost brakes, moved the businees coupe package tray and bulkhead behind the front seat back to make room for rear seats.

    The trim will need to be redrilled to make them level.

    Dang Roger!

    That is incredible. I recognize some of the parts to be early chevy coupe like mine, but then it's something entirely different. I love it!

    I tried to do a multi-quote but couldn't figure it out. The skirts are fleetline, between sick friends, car shows and lazyness I haven't worked on it, I'm taking Watsons T-Bird to Austin next week, then a Show in La verne,ca., then Santa Maria ., Then I spend the summer back on it. I have a lot of friends who come over and help,I think they have enjoyed the vacation. Roger

    Can't believe i never saw this before today. That's amazing work and an amazing amount of work. I thought I was the shits when I sectioned the hood on my '46! :rolleyes: It still doesn't fit very good.
