So how long is the punch list, other than the windshield wipers?
Ouch, hot Wassail through the nose! LMAO anyway!
How about before & after shots?
Looks even better in person.
Just read all 136 pages of this build. Amazing. Nice work
Thanks Tim for the photo...you got my good side?
More pics! More pics!
Sent from my DROID device using the TJJ mobile app
Door sill plates are in.
Like the keyfob?
Absolutely beautiful in every aspect! It's been great following along on the build. Thanks for taking the time to share all your progress!
I dream of Jeannie. Uh...I mean Vicky.
Well done sir!!!
Sexy keyfob. Sexy dash.
I love this keyfob and finally found a home for it. You can turn the bottom of the bomb and she will belly dance.
Beautiful ! So perfect , I'd be afraid to even look at 'er , might leave a smudge !
AMAZING! well done. This is top on my list to see at GNRS.
I'm in love with Victoria.
I've been without internet for awhile, I came down to the library to see the latest... Wow Skip, interior's killer! It's so different from the usual '50's style Tuck-n-roll job, but it looks perfect! It looks exactly like what would have been one of Bill Gaylord's higher-end jobs in the mid '50's, awsome!
Tedley you're on the right track with your shoebox... Mr. Skipper is just a Ruler and what do minions do with Rulers? We look up to them!
Can we get a video of this keyfob in action?
Thanks Pinstriper40 for the kind words....I have been told I do these build threads for attention, but I think that comes from envy and jeleousy? I do try to show folks you don't have to be a big money builder to do this. By the way to all the critics, according to the thread count I would say its the Victoria getting all the attention?
How about some original off the car wiper shortening?
By the way just an old shop rag I found (JJ spam)....Here I drilled out the rivits.
Was fortunate enough to find the stainless tiny jewelers screws at an estate sale.
Sorry just an old Weesner T-shirt I found (weesner Spam) and the done product and I polished them also.
Came out pretty nice for the original arms.
We know you're just a regular guy like the rest of us... but it's hard to accept regularity when you put out a product like this! Congrats on a damn fine car... It really does give the rest of us something to aspire to.
Haha!!! Awesome!!!! I can't wait to see this damn thing in person.
Thanks for the SHPAM!
lol attention, ya right. I love following a build with lots of pics, details, info, ideas. I'm sure others do to especialy if one is building the same year of car, like me. I pic up little tidbits and maybe even add some for others if it helps. That is what these forums are all about in my opinion. So let the introverts ponder. I dig a good build with lots of details.
Looking at builds from start to finish is quite the transformation and they are all different. Entertaining as hell.
Thanks for the entertainment by the way. enjoying this
Thanks tedley keep after what you are building because it is very inspiring.
I only dreamed of having a car some day worthy of this plaque...dream come true I guess and me being born and raised in LA makes it special for me.
Hell yea - lookin' great !
