well...um....hahaha
the interior will be good once I get my carpet(should be on the way right now), but the engine isn't anything special. Just kinda cleaned up a little. I want to work on that as I go, but for now I just want to get everything else goin and then I'll detail the engine too.

ya we've had it for 10 years or so, but never got it done. My dad went back to school and had been really busy for awhile with jobs pretty far away. He got a job here in town this year so it should be on the road before too long. oh and if you were wondering what it was it's a 33 Ford tudor sedan

Oh I almost forgot. Ya the wheels are all thanks to Al Reed. He did a great job and the car wouldn't look anywhere near as good without em. He asked for some pics, so I need to get some for him too.

Did you have it painted or do it yourself?

If I woulda had someone else do it all it woulda cost a heck of alot of money that I really don't have. I did a ton of welding. I've got some before pics, and I'll get some after pics of teh particular spots this weekend. But that's also why I got so much orange peel....not enough reducer.... oh well I got alot of paint on there so it should come out good.

again, couldn't afford alot so no dipping or blasting the whole thing, although I did sand blast some smaller parts on the side. Had to take most of the old paint off with 80 grit. I painted all of the trunks and interior with hammerite black after making repairs. I've got a little more to go, like detailing the trunks and stuff, but it's gettin there.
