Sure do appreciate each bit of input from you guys. This ain't about what IDJ prefers, its about popular opinion. I think this makes the car look shorter. Time to go lay hands on this baby.

Have we arrived at an amicable side trim arrangement? That is... do you like it?

Thought we had a wholesale arrangement, I only give a penny for your thoughts. But they add up. This is resto work, it pays half, remember?

Much obliged fer yer look-see, ole podnuhs.

You should stop the trim short of the bumper about 6" into a point, no?

Thanks, guys. Pugs, yes I like that but the molding can't be straight, it has to curve down a little at the back. Cat owner wants to keep the hook anyway. Boss wants a black one and a mint green one to ogle. It will not be red. Today you guys get a pic break but I put 3 on the blog. I welded the 59's ribbed axle hump shelf in, trimmed trunk pans (cut center section out, +), welded the tail light area braces to the tail member with flange strips, weld prepped the hump's rear extension and screwed that in, welded plugs on edges of the hump front ext'n, and put the hot rolled bulkhead in place but am having second thoughts of how to brace the area.

Warmed up this afternoon, was gonna take the GP out but left the lights on Friday. Got about a half hour of 10 amps on it before dark. Tomorrow it will be sunny and 75 and I'll try again. Glad Monday is a done day.

I got my trailer into the garage and on the lift to get ready for the suspension and brakes/hubs installation. It is currently a tandem axle with the mobile home/heavy utility trailer style hubs, and both axles are welded to the frame. I bought a set of six lug hubs with 2 x 12 brakes and will be converting to single axle. The existing brakes are also mobile home style with no parts available that I could find, and have seized in place anyway. Both axles have been narrowed/welded in the middle, but the front one cracked at the weld. I will be reinforcing the other axle before it goes back into service. Probably would have been easier to just buy another axle...
