The worst part: I had it being held by an alligator clip. I heard a "ping" and watched it fly across the room, heard it hit a cardboard box, and it seems as if the cardboard box ate it. I literally saw where it hit yet it still evades me.
Put a panty hose on the vacuum cleaner and see it you can pit up that way. I hate it when that happens.

Very exciting. I hope more folks jump in, in particular if you've never built a low rider.

Got the frame done and touched up, and I finished up some basic engine work. I managed to find the water pump. The tacky paint was tacky enough to stick to the wall. So while I was sifting through the shag carpet, I briefly gave up and gazed at nothing. Then a little shiny thing on the wall got my attention.
12 hours later.
So anyways the part was cleaned up and done in gold via the alclad path, and radiator done in chrome, and all installed and detail painted.
Will get better pics uploaded when I get home.

picked up a neat set of wire wheels at a recent show.
Worked on the front seat head rest and deepened the seat
separations to give it some more definition.
Also finished the Chevy heartbeat.
Next thing is a silver basecoat ..let it sit for 2 days.
Working on the interior while the body sits for a while.
