    Hey Justin, A HEMI is not the be all to end all buddy, a 360 would be an awesome power plant, but the Chevy will do for now mate.
    So when are you planning the firewall to come out, now you have drawn it up and it looks so good that you can not, not do it. :D
     
  2. Ya im going to stick with the chevy. Im just going to cut the sections out and roll them as I can't do the firewall in one piece. Im not sure when im going to do it but it will be done, most like wait tell I don't need the motor in anymore.

    Looking really cool Justin, Are you planning to do like Mike did, the one thing Mopar should have done from the factory with those rear fenders you have fitted buddy ? I think they need the same wheel arch as the front fenders to match and look like the belong, they will even give the truck a lower look matching the fender wheel arches in my opinion. You are doing great work buddy, look forward to see you post everytime i jump on to have a look, and when you have not had a chance to post up new posts, it is always a blast to go through your thread again for some eyecandy my friend, you are doing really good. Awesome.

    Justin,
    The truck is looking really great! It's coming together very well. If you weren't on the other side of the world from me, I would bring my '55 over for your help. Keep up the good work...
    Steve-

  19. Yep, I will be make the rear arch the same as the front along with other mods to set this further apart from your average dodge...

    Thanks Steve!

    Thanks!

    Thank you, I cant wait either!

    Haha thanks! "sweet shizle" I like that...Lol

    thanks Jim!
     
  20. I just went through this entire thread, and all I have to say is, WOW. Man, you do some top-notch work! I think what I like about this the most is that you took a body style that most people have forgotten about and turned it into a work of art. I love the inner fenders and what you've got planned for the firewall.

    Just went over the entire build thread bro, looks amazing. Makes me want to go to harbor freight and get some tools. I just bought my 56 f100 and this is true inspiration. Keep up the good work.
