Hi,

 

I start this project a few weeks........

 

20130309_221741_zpsf3d196bd.jpg

 

I did some modifications on the front........

 

20130320_193026_zpsd2dd0be9.jpg

 

I got a set of wheels........

 

20130315_114747_zps29ca7f64.jpg

20130315_114005_zps1c88ea51.jpg

 

But i did something diffident....... I strip the chrome and added a bullet stile cap to the front wheels...... also strip the chrome from the other parts. I will re chrome........

I primed the body ant painted in tuxedo satin black..........

This build is off to a great start and really inspires me to get on to my '49 merc I have been wanting to start. I am totally digging the car you want to after. I love the bullets you added to the hubcaps... Nice little touch.
