    I'm going to refer to the wagon as " Hard Knock" due to the paint upolstery combo; the School of Hard. Knocks colours are black and blue... LOL

    Now which steering wheel did you use?

    This car is incredible!
    I have a question though. I might have missed it, but what is the source of the side window glass behind the B pillar?
  5. Very nice ride! You should be proud!

    The term "masterpiece " comes to mind!
  10. We used AM Hot Rod Glass. It's really easy stuff to work with, trim, sand & even drill. After using it I can see why allot of builders are starting to use it on all there builds.
  11. Well.. It's no fridge truck but....

  13. Just seen the question on the steering wheel. It's a '57 Lincoln Premiere steering wheel & column.

    All I can say is.....Stunning. To me, it all flows with one exception- the hubcaps. From the outside and inside color and design, all the little design changes you wouldn't notice unless there was a stock 55 wagon next to this one. To me, a T-bird wire wheel would suit the car better. But you know what they say about opinions.......A beautiful execution of an already good design. Kudos to you and your team and the owners for the perseverance to see this one through.
