    Okay guys. I swear I’m still working my ass off on her. It’s just been mostly electrical and plumbing which isn’t fun to show. Everything seems to be working electronically. I have to wait for my kustom gauges from classic instruments and my bumpers from the chrome shop. (My tail lights are in my bumper guards)
    All the side glass is in, just a couple things to adjust.

    And I put in my steering wheel that Kyle Martin painted for me.

    I’m waiting on stuff from the chrome shop so I just popped a hub cap on for fun.

  16. I am totally blown away. Super nice car! I used a 40 Buick wheel on my 34 but the stock size was too big for me. I made a few changes.. 34column5.JPG

    Hey Rocky,
    Thank you very much. That steering wheel looks awesome. I’m going to remember that when I build my next hot rod.

    I was able to pick a few things up from the chrome shop. So I put these two together. I’m very happy. They kicked my ass while we were making them but not it was totally worth it.
