    Waiting on the frame I figured time for this firewall. Ford should get the award for ugliest firewall!

    That looks good, and maybe this is a stupid question, but what are you going to do for a heater and wipers now?

    Cool, I can't wait to see how that works out, I have one of those kits as well, but air only I think, still in boxes from years ago.

    Bold, very bold on the second part. Not that 57 wipers are worth a crap anyway.

    Did you have electric wipers before? Any chance you want to part with that motor ;)

    And Blocking.. And Blocking... And Blocking getting ready for paint. Then some more Blocking.

    The beauty of having the "King of Kustoms" as a Uncle is at the holidays I always say "You're going to paint one of my cars someday" His reply anytime just call..

    Well I finally did....

  21. this is going to be a cool wagon!
     
  22. Anybody who had restored/hotrodded a full size wagon knows it not easy! Big flat panels, rare trim pieces, big heavy frame, etc, Your build, makes doing a coupe or a roadster a breeze!
    Your wagon is coming along nicely and to get Gene to spray on one of his unique paint jobs will make it a winner for sure!
