The Deuce is DONE!

Finally finished the last of the interior details and can call this project done. After 3 years and 10 months its finally ready for the road. The only work I didn't personally do was the machine work on the block and heads, and seat upholstery. My lovely wife volunteered her time and sewed the trunk and door panels as well as the shifter and e-brake boots. Was a lot of work and I couldn't have done it without her patience and sewing expertise. Also a special thanks to Deuce (our resident 1932 Ford expert) for his tutelage and advice.



Finishing touch's.....

Door panels



Seat Belts



Shifter and e-brake boots



Completed interior



Done and ready for the road.

Top ten reasons racing is better then sex:

1)You're expected to burn rubber, 2) It's OK to be a spectator, 3) There is a pit crew to help you out, 4) The faster you are the better you are, 5) It can last for several hours, 6) It's acceptable to tailgate, 7) You're supposed to finish first, 8) Earplugs are OK to drown out noise, 9) You don't have to kiss the race car, and 10) You get a trophy when your done.

Nice Job and I know you're proud of her, as you should be. Thanks for showing her to us. Enjoy your project and reap the rewards of all that hard work. Kudos to the Wiffy also. I'm no expert but I love everything about it.

Yes it does. Right now I'm getting it ready to move to Texas in the spring. Complete brake job (including modifying the tapered axle 8 3/4 rear to accept slip on brake drums), and draining the fuel system and replacing the pump.

Centerline... Why do you have them wire's going into the valve covers on that big block Chevy !!!!!!

Man it look's killer even without the big Chevy in it... I would have some baby moons on it.... But it look's great just like it is..... I bet your having a good time now... Now all you have to do is take a ride down south La to see me...

When you do come,,, Make sure you come in at night.... They don't allow any Hemi's on my street....LOL No I'm just joking... Your welcome anytime....

Wow...just wow. Not surprised at the level of quality or attention to detail given who did the work but still very impressed.

Great job Centerline, nice work.
