    yesteday while is was lookin at the body of the 49 i was wondering why the builder put this ugly conti kit on the trunk, so i decide to cut that thing to have a better feeling for the bodyline. eusa_wall.gif eusa_wall.gif eusa_wall.gif eusa_wall.gif
    now i know what a bondo-sled is....i heard storys about that people do those things with cars....but my hope all the time was that these people use any kind of ricerockets...but here it is now the real fuckin bondosled 013.gif 029.gif 013.gif 013.gif 013.gif 013.gif 013.gif

    Great work brother, you are taking an excellent approach to this project, and you are gettin it done right. Please kids, don't think this is the only bondo bandit to ever cruz the pavement. Just one that a hero is rescuing and redoin the right way. Like all the colors on the undercarriage and parts, very cool. Rock on man!! ~Sololobo~

    And here we have an example of a built-to-sell "custom car".
    Pathetic. You're doing a heck of a job making that car yours after being hosed when you bought it. I salute you.

    Great work man, way to save a car that some idiot hacked up. Looks killer.
     
  30. After all that good work, don't be surprised if it still rides like shit. I've never been in a car with hydros that didn't ride like shit.
