Awesome.

That do-hickey by the door-jamb knocks my socks off! I don't know what it is, but it looks like a sweet piece of customization going on.

Keep up the good work ... and keep showing us the pics!

Thanks guys the out rocker is actually the inner bottom part of the door hump that is the extension of the fender its was so plane i decided to smooth it up some aswell as the jambs and if its photos you want photos you shall get lol,
Its finally nice to see some progress on the car.
Some of the mods include welding the fenders to the car tilt front end "to work on it" and will open the hood pancake style like an early merc which is on the things to do list, wow um flipped the rear bumper tapered the ends and filled the holes smoothed the firewall shaved all the trim except the handles frenched the headlights etc hope you like.
Also smoothed up my brakes and made them one peice instead of the big notch in them that comes from the factory and also will be running a 56 2-10 steering wheel and ididit column

George: I love your car, and you are a very talented guy, but I'm not sure how all of this belongs in the interior section of the bulletin board?!?! Am I missing something? Unless you can move on to your interior, I will move you to General Rodding Tech. If that happens, I will keep the thread here so the guys can keep following your project.

George: Please don't be upset or anything like that. Everybody loves your dash work, (including me.) Just try to swing back a little more towards interior as opposed to rod tech. For example: what do you want to do with those bare seats, which are very interesting?? I know you will, so I'll leave your post right where it is, 'cuz all the guys (including me) want to see where you go from here. Thanks!

George: What a gracious man you are! I'm a new moderator, and I tend to find evil where there is none, and to take the job (probably too) seriously. I re-read my reply to you and realized I needed to tone down what I was trying to say, because you were just being enthusiastic. I hope you won't hold it against me, and I do love what you have done and are doing to your car.

What are the seats out of, they look like limitless possibilities, and what do you think you want to do with them??!! ( BTW, I can stay up longer than you c a n zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Sorry you couldn't live with the other design but I sure did like it. How are you planning on finishing behind the seats? Will you be running the drive-shaft tunnel up to the tubing behind the seats?
