Customs My 53 Chevy VOOODO

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Mr Diablo, Mar 26, 2012.

  1. Hi all...its been a while since I have posted on here...been busy with work and organising my Rockabilly Festival... Did a little make over on my 53 over Xmas, after going to Mooneyes in Japan last December I got a little excited...
    Re chrome the front bars, added exta teeth in the grile, gloss on top and saturn green body, with a little Japan Mooneyes Gang Green Flake..Oh not to forget the trim, with 55 Buick Century cloth and pearl white, kustom trim by very good old friend Pat from Sunshine Trim in Melbourne....

    Your '53 is one of my favorites and I love your improvements. The Chevy's back end
    is just way too kool!! Good luck with your show.

    Happy Trails, Mick

    Thats a good looking 53! I have that exact set of rear bumper ends on my 54 that I was going to pull and sell in the classifieds, you may make me rethink that.

    Very Nice
    , I already liked the '53 a bunch, even though it was beginning to look a bit tatty, but it's for sure Suweeeet now!! I've never been a monster fan of button tuft, but must say I really dig your new upholstery, beautiful work! Who came up with the pattern, you or Pat? I think it's the combo of both button tuft & T/R that Makes it! Always have liked scallops when they're long snakey subtle ones like that! You be Stylin' man!

    and yeah, what were you thinkin'? Why would you want to break up a pair like that? [ fix that droopy right door handle though, she's too purdy to have a curl outa place]
