Petemattersen's Shoebox gets a facelift.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by PeteMattersen, Nov 17, 2008.

  1. Well its not done of course, but i got my new fenders trimmed down and started grafting them onto the shoebox fenders this morning. Here's some pics of what i got so far. Not gonna weld them yet as i like to give it a day or two in case a better idea arises. Looks like i will be filling the front end with a 51 merc grill. Back to the shop!
