Default 54 Chevy payback

So the payback for my buddy helping me with the bodywork and shooting the color on my van is this. His late dad owner this 54 Chevy 2 dr and cruised it around town for a few years before it got parked in the backyard. Kyle's dad passed several years ago and he inherited the car. So a few years back he pulled it in the garage and started taking it apart. Our trade was he did the work on my van and I do the metal work on the Chevy for him. It's rough, I'm doing floors, quarters, rockers, and a trunk pan. It's going to have a mild street 454 with a TH400, MII front suspension and a four link out back. so far I've cut all the bad out of the drivers side, built new inner panels, and fitted the new rocker and quarter. It's going to be a cool ride and my wife loves it since it's somebody else's money.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Yeah itíll be a cool ride. Not sure how often weíll get to work on it; he manages a local body shop and plays in a band on the weekends. Iíll try and keep him motivated; it needs to be on the road.
