    Thanx for the pix! Yeah I think that was woodcock dam. Not sure if they do shows over there anymore or not. I remember I took my buddy in the 53 up the road to his tow vehicle to get his phone and when I came back they said shut it off and leave it off haha!! Good times thanks for sharing

    Thanx mikey. I built the motor last summer. It’s a 498 with AFR oval port heads, Howard’s SR cam, 10.5 compression so it’ll run on 93 octane. Figured beats the hell outta paying $9 per gallon for 110!

    You nailed the stance and tire fit, now the motor sounds mean and nasty, and the tilt front end is great. I think this is by far my favorite early '50s Chevy gasser.

    Thanx again for the support guys! It is 70 degrees here in Akron today so figured it was a good day to take some vacation and work on the car. Got the epoxy all scuffed down and if everything goes as planned it’ll be in polyester tonight!

    Success! Now ready for some sanding. The Z chrome laid down pretty smooth so i'm gunna try blocking 180 straight thru. If that doesn't work out i'll cut it with 120 first..

    You are making good progress. The block sanding takes some serious time to get right. Makes the difference between an ok paint job and a real paint job.

    Steady gettin' it!
    The puke yellow poly primer is incentive to get it in paint. The '57 was stuck in that color for years.
