    Here's a little of what I'm working on now. Finished the rear air ride suspension, now I'm adding a splash of 57 Chevy onto the front. ] 20190725_215724.jpeg 20190730_121501.jpeg 20190730_125949.jpeg 20190730_141111.jpeg 20190912_124430.jpeg 20190915_155853.jpeg

    That's sick. Outstanding use of the 57 fender to keep the rib throughout the top

    Holy crap that's awesome!

    I'm imagining some future car show attendee will be wondering what you grafted that Desoto grille into.;):D

    OMG...you have cut up the holy grail of General Motors, the 1957 Chevy. The equal to the 1932 Ford....Good job, excellent fit, form, and function.

  20. Just when I thought you couldn't make this car look any better, you go and make it look better! Changing those headlights made a world of difference on the front end. Really digging your "Desotolet". Keep at it man.

    This is just pure genius! I love that you canted them just a bit. How far off of vertical are they?

  26. As much as I love, everything you've done to your "Desorta'" as GG called it ... the post that cracks me up ... the most, is where you said, your dad told you, you have ruined that car. :)

    Neither he, nor anyone else ... had a clue, of what was coming. This is an epic ride to an incredible creation ... shaking up ... here. Thanks for sharing it.

    If they had a Grand National Roadster Show for Customs this would be hard to beat. Bob
