    My '52 Special 45R series coupe is even the same color combo. I'm subscribed. Waiting to see what's next for ideas. mine's on the far back burner until I get some other projects on the road, but always keeping an eye out for parts and plans.

    I've been playing the waiting game with parts for this thing all week. Decided to save money and use eBay , and it's killing me that I'm still waiting on my gas tank since last Tuesday (making it over a week now)

    She looks even better now. Running, but not driving just yet. Hopefully she'll be driving in the next few weeks.

    Smart move cutting that gas door out. They strees the body panels when flexing.

    I got a little wave under mine now, after all that blocking.
