he liked that a lot and it made me feel good. he could not touch any of the other so letting him sit in mine was special to him.

Lightbulb update

slow progress on the car, kinda put it on the back burner to try and get the 66 chevelle going this summer.

worked on the floor/carpet pads today. made them outta an after market door sill kit, a piece of 1/16th'' stainless steel and a old aluminum road sign. l used a mopar floor mat for the middle, kinda rough looking, BUT, for the theme of the car they'll work great. just gonna go the the carpet barn and get some grey or black seconds for the floor, this plate will help proctect it from wearing holes thru the carpet in the footwells

Cool progress

well its been a while since l worked on the sedan, been woking on jimmy's truck a lot lately.

went out and started the disassimble phase of the dodge sedan.

funny how ya put a car together and then take apart and then put back together at least once or twice.


getting ready to finish putting in the gas tank, head and tail lights, some body work, carpet etc-- hope to put in the motor and trans soon and get running.

post pics later.

Your car deserves finishing , it needs you , it wants you , it is feeling neglected

I may have "find" my title for a car I`m looking at, might be my only option.

I like your build, especially the fact that you are making it weather friendly. I would need at least heat and glass(I had a monte with no heat). I`m not done driving my car until the snow flies

Now, go finish her up

Arrow done a little more

got the gas tank in place, now just need to strap it in/down & run fuel lines.

l have plexiglass for the side windows and back window, a freind of mine knows a guy with a glass shop said he'd put safety glass windshield in for a good price.

got an older heater out of a 30's something car, core is in good shape, gonna put that in with a old vacuum cleaner hose ran under the dash up to the windshield for "redneck" defroster

been bouncin, between this and JR's truck, when l get to the point l am stalled on one, we work on the other.

progress is slow but, at least there both moving foreward

still shootin' to get both running by summer

Gregster, ''Your car deserves finishing , it needs you , it wants you , it is feeling neglected.''



Gregster, your'e right, it's time to get back on the dodge. went out and started doing a list of what l have to do and doing a recon of the parts l have for it.

next week l am gonna start getting the motor in and start the wiring.

if we push it, we may get it running by fall

being a pack-rat has some advantages, 25 years worth of stuff and l can actually use a lot of the ''stash'' on this build
