    Got the fiberglass shaped down and excess cut off the edge. Laid in some Duraglass to fill the small low areas on top side. And roughed it in, so It's ready for a thin coat of regular filler.

    They always have, but somebody went brain dead when I bid on the set I have. They were on Fleabay and I tossed a $50 bid on them for the heck of it. They closed at $35! Not sure why so cheap, as the...

    Probably one of the best years of all for old Mopars! Suicide doors, and the tops look chopped when they came from the factory! Nice car!

    Once again I started to box up and bring my paint and body filler inside the basement for winter. Once again I got sidetracked on the '39 instead. But I did at least get paint in a box!

    That '55 is hauling ass! Always had a soft spot for the '55 Chevy, and think it's the best of the Tri Five Chevys.

    Great work Dave! That's a major step forward too!

    As for filling gaps, there's a couple ways I do it. I either put a thin metal backer behind it to keep it from blowing out, or I use thick copper...

    I considered red, but didn't want two red gassers, even if they were different reds, or shades of red.
    I think the competition orange has more of a no nonsense race car, or gasser theme to it. I...

    With the 5 speed T45 you should get pretty good mileage when cruising at highway speeds. But of course you need to be steady cruising, vs. hot footing it to get the mileage. The T45 is just about at...

    Were the original door latches bad Mike, or do you just prefer the bear claw type? Nice work on them, and the bumper!

    My Chevy is 4.5" pattern and likely the same as your setup. But I'm pretty happy with the Torq Thrusts, so I'll pass Mike! Thanks anyway!

    If I was making this repair to the frame I'd start by reinforcing the top of the rail first. The top is likely the most solid part of the frame, so I'd tack a piece of 1.5"-2" box tubing across the...
