Thats pretty nice!
Your attention to detail is ridiculous! Can't wait to see this one in person
Devil's in the details.......nice job!
This is going to be one of the greatest cars to come out in a while. Everything is being done properly and shows good taste, not over done.
Can't wait to see it in paint and finished up.
I don't recall seeing the spinners previously -- I presume those will make up your grille. Have you shown us that in mocked up form?
Beautiful stainless polishing!
edit: Whoops, never mind, I found it. Post #1078.
The car is being done by businesses that do outstanding work in my mind. But then again it is the type of work that makes a person happy to put on his car. Again I am low bucking this car and it is not for show judging it is a driver. Thanks again guys it is really coming together. At the end I will give a figure I have in the car and you will see it can be done without robbing the bank. Skip
Everything looks amazing ! This car has been a big influence on how I handled things under the hood on my car.
Now that ive got the shmoozing out of the way, is that a fucking square four chopper sitting there ?????
Sweet beejus, it sure is!!!!
I take the fifth!!!
Need to see more!
Boy Skip, the cat's out of the bag now.
Chopper? What chopper?
I have no clue....I think they have been smoking something?
Royalshifter: It's always interesting meeting the people behind the names - especially now that it's obvious that the RoyalShoebox is going to be an absolutely killer kustom. It was cool meeting you this weekend and thanks for the introductions to your buds and for sharing with me some upcoming details. I appreciate your encouragement with my own car and look forward to seeing Victoria's Secret revealed soon.
Dropped window frames at All American Glass in Fresno today.
Hurry the fuck up! I'm getting impatient.
I can't wait to come out and shoot that car!!!
What's the status of the paint?
Gotta love your project. Classic builds with a great history from an even better era.
Started assembly on the 51 Fordomatic column and man more Dremel tooling to get everything to fit....pain in the ass but will be sweet.
Very shiney Brer!!!!
The 51 Lincoln wheel fits the bell real nice.
Gorgeous! How many pieces of chrome did you tell me you had done? Nearly 100, wasn't it?
If this is a driver I'd sure love to see you build a Show Car!......amazing!
