    Got my floorboards stained and installed. Still have to make the covers for the master cylinder access and around the pedals and column. My buddy called me yesterday to tell me my seat was ready. Went picked it up. I used a bengels seat frame and he covered it in a black leather like vinyl. After the car is up and running ill drop it off for him to do the door panels and kick panels. Also got my tank, battery box, and fire extinguisher installed. Tomorrow ill finish running the fuel lines and make up the battery cables.

    Your car is turning out great. It is motivating me to get to work on mine. I am currently building a 31 coupe but still have a long way to go. I hope my car turns out half as good as yours is. I live not that far from you up in St. Francisville. I had the 46 ford in my avatar that was also parked in the coliseum of the Roundup. .

    Looking great Ryan! You’ll have to drive it over to see my car. I’m sure it’ll be done by the time our schedules let you get over here.

    Is there some secret I don't know on how to get your dash rail screws in without dicking up the paint on dash? Those were the most miserable things to get in.

    Yep, paint the dash rail and dash bolted in the car.

    Started wiring the car this weekend. Used all cloth covered wiring from Brillmans. They have a great selection and good prices. Also got the 32 column drop that i got from @louisb painted and rebuilt. it was broken at the column mount. I tig’d it back together with an iconel rod. I used a kit from thirdgen auto to rebuild it. Painted it with a single stage urethane. Got it mounted up, and installed my 39 banjo steering. My little one is ready for a rip around the block! Hopefully ill finish up the wiring this week.
