    Nice I was going to suggest some kind of green as you don't see too many that color and the red / white combo just did not look good in my opinion. I had a nice 1952, 2 door post car I really liked driving.

    I think the next step should be to get your stock column cut down tapered for a lower bearing so you can figure out mounting it and fill that huge hole in the firewall. All you really need is to figure out the new length and get it mounted, we will figure out the engine compartment side of the steering as you go. Ask if you can bring it to work on friday and get it shortened.

    Sorry, I don't have photo shop. I lowered the car with the 'Paint' program. Someone on here can do it, though.

    here's a very bad chop, but maybe it'll give you an idea of how it'd look.

    Just my 2 cents worth, but you just removed the coolest part of owning a 50's Buick. I love the ventiports.

    I highly dislike port holes and the grills. The hole covers remind me of the screens people use In Their bath tubs and sinks . There are way better things on a buick than the he's , like the qtr panels the shape of hood , door fender shapes and wheel well opening

    Cleaned up and welded up seams where the frame was originally boxed. I'm cutting out the crappy x-frame and boxing up and making new cross members ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1433134351.771131.jpg
