    well got real busy in tha last few weeks and got the body finished up, pulled the frame out cleaned it and got the body on it. gotta thank my father, brother, big robbie and mondo for there help it was flat pouring down when we got the body on. everything came together perfect, now gonna wet sand it and paint it for the last time. still tossed on color love candy red but it looks so good black. im thinking black, here's a few updated pictures of the body frame match. also had to pull the ford out with the nomad and snap a picture it was such a nice sunny day

    well i wish i had pictures of the dash from the day! R&C in 1968 it had the stock dash with s/w gauges in it, then when russ re-did it in the late 60's he cut the dash out and it just followed around the winsheild and was covered in vinyl. there was just the stock column sticking out. when i got the car someone had cut some of it out and i didnt have any pictures so i did the best of both worlds i put a steel dash in it took the humps out, put the gauges back up in the dash, speedo above the column. then i took a 64 impala tilt and reformed the lower cover so it fits the dash bezel, it fits together slick. then i used a 64-66 factory gm wood wheel hub and a unknow wood wheel. here is some pictures and thanks for all the kind words.

    Nice car! I will always have a soft spot for nomads I had one for one of my first projects...
     
  18. That's really cool. I am an old friend of Russ's Have not talked to him in a long while. How is he? Is he still kickin'? That man has more talent in his little finger than ten men. And a great guy too. I miss Russ.

    Yes! An all time favorite!
     
  22. Nice work on a classic Chevy!:cool:
     
  23. Thanks for the response. I think I'll give Russ a call. What bedliner product did you use on the floor? Looks good. Brush or spray? I bought some that you brush on and I don't really like it. You got a badass car going together there. Too cool.
