Default Some Project Updates

Will be putting the body on the frame Sunday .... I have been working on the underside of the body, undercoating, filling seams. I then moved to the inside working on floor insulation, battery box mount, filling holes. Now I just have to clean up the garage for Sunday! Lol!

Yes, it sure does, I have to get some pics of the roadster posted. We haven;t posted much lately, my helper had open heart surgery and is just getting back to normal, and I'm just getting older.

A little late with these but better late than never. Been pretty busy ever since working on everything to get this baby running and driving. I am really excited about the look of the car - the two tone green has really grown on me, and I am looking forward to the final "look" but so far, it's much better than I ever imagined or planned .....

Fantastic build. If your program can't be a Flathead, a Nailhead is a great choice.
