One side always looks better then the other side on my projects as well.
I always think about what Von Dutch said to a customer that complained that his pin strip job looked different on one side from the other. "You can only see one side at a time."
Looking good.

We haven't done anything major, or minor, to the body lately. Have had a lot of uos and downs in life this summer. This will be a lot slower of a build than the last 2. Hopefully this next month we can get beating on it some more. It's almost ready to graft onto the essex.

Again, nothing major to post but figured I needed to let everyone know we're still alive. Was going to move copper out of the garage this morning but by the time I woke up and got going it was way too hot. It's been poking around the mid to high 90s lately and with the fires surrounding Montana the wind feels like a blast furnace so there has been no welding to be had at home. I did however get in contact with a gent who has a ford 292 that ran well when pulled from a 59 f-series with a auto behind it so looks like I won't need to source a c4 for her car. Price is good also at $350 for the setup. May have to put a mild cam in her to make her burn rubber but we'll see what happens. If and when the weather cools down I'll pull copper out of the garage and slide the essex in for surgery. As the coupe quarters are mostly done, we'll be able to butt everything together and see how she needs to be cut.

When a guy thinks 32 f and 0 c is comfortable 95f and 36c is a killer, Budwiser doesn't make enough beer to keep me cool.

Default Slicing and dicing has begun.

So, finally was up early enough this morning, seeing as I got a bit of ot in last night, and didn't have anything else going on and because this afternoon's supposed to be a scorcher, decided it was time. Rolled the 33 out of the garage and parked it next door, used a couple of old skate boards as body movers, moved what was left of the A so I could park the 33 next to the garage, and parked the 33. Started cutting the Essex to accept the A quarters and shoved her together to see how they fit. Going to have to raise the coupe quarters up about an inch to get the belt lines and corners to match. So all in all, a good start to this crazy idea of mine. I think the Ol' Lady is gonna be a bit worried when she comes out to see but she was supportive when I brought home the 31 in all its pieces so she has faith that we can pull it off. So yeah, heres some progress, finally!

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
