I hope to have this finished by then Wayne.

Shouldn't be terribly difficult.

 

It will be a little strange for me this year not having anything on the "factory stock" table.

The Olds will be on the "muscle car" table, and I will bring my '65 Plymouth Fury for the "street machine" category.

That will be about it this year.

Looking forward to seeing what you brink..I know it will be spectacular..

I appreciate all of that guys!

 

 

I decided that it was time to stop procrastinating and start polishing the body.

I completely hate the polishing process, but absolutely love the results!

 

I'm looking forward to beginning the foiling soon.

I looked at the body pics and blurted out “HOLY SH*T!!”  Twenty minutes later I can’t come up with any other words...

I’ll just sit here and applaud for a while....

Thanks so much guys!!

 

 

Working on more chassis stuff today.

I finished up the scratch built rear shocks and installed them along with the remainder of the rear suspension and the rear portion of the exhaust system.

 

I also finished detailing the firewall and "flat spotted" the tires.

I'm not certain whether I should take that as a compliment or not.

I don't believe that I talk like him, and I certainly hope I don't look like him! :lol:

I love seeing your builds Steve, always such nice work!  The flat spots in the tires is SO simple but makes such a difference!

Looks to be about 27-28 PSI in those tires...

 

 

 

(will look more natural when there is a whole car sitting on them :D) Nice work so far.

I believe I am at least getting close to the final stages.

Finishing foiling the body will likely be the last time consuming task remaining, although there are plenty of little things to do yet.

That sounds like work!

Especially for a tech illiterate such as myself! :P

Got a fairly good jump on foiling the body today.

 

keeping the fender well moldings perfectly round is a bit of a pisser!! :P
