    I had my doubts too. It's not perfect, but I'm happy it's back in one piece. Doors are coming really soon. Might have a couple other things I wanna do to the firewall area.

    I swear I'm almost done with this part... I just need to stop looking for things to do. But I want it done. I don't want to keep coming back. 20170803_141744.jpg

    Tacked 20170803_144447.jpg all ground (I found a few other spots I wanted to work on lol) 20170803_192530.jpg Ok this side is done... again. For now :) 20170803_194025.jpg 20170803_194043.jpg
    I gotta do a couple more little things... But then I'm gonna put the wheels back on and put it on the ground. I'm too excited to see how it looks sitting on the ground after taking out 4 inches!

    Thank you. I know all of this gets hidden by fenders, inner fenders, hood... But why would I leave the original fender holes, when the fender won't mount there anymore after taking out 4 inches? And if I left em, I know I wouldn't be trying my hardest to learn and get better. At least now I'll now that under my fenders are no holes at all :)

    Some day those areas will get painted to the same level of finish as the outside of the car, and you will know it was time well spent. Bob

    Don't get carried away and fill those other 4 holes, remember they are for the hood hinges!!! Un less you decide to front hinge the hood. You could, you know you could. HaHa. Ralphie

    love what your doing . I've done a 56 Chrysler 2 dr hdtp mild custom I know it's a lota work or play. your attention to the small stuff is impressive but. there's alway's a but you have a long way to go to a running driving custom. that small stuff doesn't put you on the road and it will burn you out. most of the finished cars with detail to everything have been worked over by more than one person

  12. correct, but not everybody is the same. some guys get-r-done, some guys get the job finished, some guys burn out and never finish, there are even guys that don't care or plan to ever finish;)
    go Rytang go!

    The details are usually what gets me interested and going for more!
    It's very exciting to see what one can do next and to continue that challenge throughout, it's also a sense of pride.
    Keep going, all that matters is how you feel about yourself.

    You're right. Never thought about it. I pushed one around last night, shopping carts are taller.

  29. You stole the words straight out of my mouth before I had even scrolled down to read your comment. Absolutely brilliant, you are certainly on the right track for " down low and dirty "

    You made fillers for two low spots, now that part of your cowl had three larger low spots to fill to get a totally smooth cowl. Sorry, OCD strikes again
