great choice on the colors Tyrone! that will be killer like the rest of this build!

That color scheme will be off the hook. I may be able to help you out with drawing up the decals but I'll need to find better reference. Let me see what I can do. Some one on here surely has an ALPS printer. Anyone?

Alright they say all good things come to an end.. and unfortunately my time off from work has come to an end.. it's back to work tomorrow..smh... well on the 55 I got the the transmission and the shifter detailed and put in the car.. I also made some brackets, and added dzus fasteners to them below the headers to for the front end, I also added some to the trunk area and to the cowl area for the front end.. I got the battery and cables installed, and I added the anchor for the rear chutes.... the front end is also a one piece now.. thanks for looking and comments welcome...

Thanks fellas for the kind words... I really appreciate it.... If I have inspired someone in any way to build these type of builds.... or to be inspired by what I do means a whole lot.... I love these pro mod... door slammer type builds... I think there is alot of great talented builders on here that I have learned from by watching their techniques also....
A small update... I got the harness done and installed the seat in the car.. I made a drive shaft tunnel from aluminum soda can.. I got the steering wheel and cord installed, and I added bracing to the wheelie bars... more to come... hopefully I'll get some paint on here this weekend...

That is looking so good! You have totally inspired me to attempt a couple of these builds! Your photobucket site has been a fantastic inspiration!!!
I, like you, LOVE door slammers, the faster the better. My builds may not be 100% accurate but I sure am having fun learning and building something out of the ordinary!
Can't wait to see the '55 painted!

My family and I buy storage units at auctions and we sell the stuff. Because of your detail I go through everything in them so find stuff to add detail to my builds. Like the other day I found a industrial writing pack that has wires wrapped oin multi colored insulation. I thought of your build and it reminded me of your wiring.
