    Thank you sir! She got dropped off today. Was fun driving that car up there. Drives real nice. Gets pretty damn hot after getting off of the highway however. Got to look into that. I will post pix after the show!
     
  2. Are you going to post pics from the show? Would like to see some of the locals.

    Home sick:(

    Cant let the cat out of the bag just
    yet... but chopping a 56 ford 2 door hard top is hard work! I have sunk the windshield on this one.

    I actually pick up some stuff from autozone. But make sure it is full bodied seam sealer. Use a glove to smooth it out and it ends up lookin factory!

    the '56 is like a conspiracy theory. looks legit on the surface, but is a total cluster of ugliness underneath. wow. as the owner i would not have been happy to find that.

    good thing it's in the hands of someone who can save it. i would have driven it off a cliff.

    makes me real happy and swells my ego a bit to hear all of this. I can assure you, this is not falling on deaf ears. I actually have some real cool stuff in the works for this next year, but I just cant let the cat out ofthe bag quite yet. You'll have to wait and see....

    and getting to the cowl for the sunken windshield chop on the 56 hard top. I really need to start a thread on this one. I have 100's of photos so far!

    I will have some more pix up later actually. Pretty boring stuff right now though. Just building the small parts and making sure everything lines up and functions along the way. That's the hard part when you have a car this far apart.
     
  29. Am I on the author list for another tech week article in the near future?
