1954 Bel Air 2 door Sedan layin body on 22s

Well just joined the site a few days ago and figured id start posting the progress of my 54 with all who care to follow along. I found it in the back of a old uhaul truck about 4 months ago and after about 8 hours and a whole lot of people who will never help again if i ask, we go it onto a trailer and dropped it into my garage. We are currently in the middle of getting the frame finished up to toss the body back on it. This isent gonna be one of those fast builds since i have a young son and a old lady i spend most of my free time with. So with all that said i suppose its time to post some pics. As soon as i figure out how to post them ill get them up haha
