HOME RUN Love your car man!!
One more person I forgot to mention and Thank in this big project is my good friend and fellow HAMBer 35Mastr.Whom I met through the HAMB when he came over to help along with a few other HAMBers move the huge crate of Fenders and running boards for the 34 after my auto accident leaving Billetproof in 2009.Originally George was going to help me fix a cracked Steering box bracket.And then I thought I would change the 4 bar and disc brakes to a more traditional front end and that would be that.George got on my ass about alot of issues that the car had which needed to be addressed.And so one thing led to another, I got the bright idea of running a flathead and so it began...The 34 spent more time at Georges house than anywhere since I bought it in August of 2009.Hell sometimes I forgot I had the 34...lol...
Awesome car man! Gonna be really nice when done.
Today November 23, 2011
It just keeps getting better. Keep the updates coming.
fab32 is right it just gets better love the insert
Top insert is just stunning. Great work for sure!
Marcus thinks your 5 window is , so fine , Marcus ....
These last details are really making it a stand out hotrod , definitely has to make the next album cover ....
Thats the plan..The car might need a restoration before we ever get the next CD finished..but thats another story...lol
And Rodders Journal!!!! Seriously.....
lol..I dont know about Rodders Journal...But that would be awesome for sure, I love that publication and they are just across the bay from me too...
Love it. Great looking insert.
Hey Marcus , the upholstery looks Great!!! PURE HOT ROD.
This all makes me very happy. It's turning out awesome man and you should be extremely proud.
How are the door panels attached? Auveco Clips? I tried them on my doors but I think my foam is too much or the clips are not long enough. I'm on the verge of using trim screws. What thickness on the interior foam?
Thanks Jeff! I'm extremely Happy over how this car has turned out.I cant believe its the same car.The Door panel are held on with clips,not sure of the thickness of foam, I would have to ask Jesus or Frank.The Interior has been a project in itself.Lots of fabricating to make it come out right.They are top notch upholsters for a very very very reasonable price.I wish everyone one ran their business like these guys do.
Lookin' good inside and out!!
