    Garnish mouldings are looking good Barry.

    Just one of the many things involved in the creation of a true custom.

    “It seems like a no worry item but this window slide is important tp placement of garnish/vent window and a pain to get it right. 49 was last yr Ford had vent in garnish molding.”

    “Sunny Ackermann was in shop early today…sprayed on sealer…now final blocking and soon the latex goes on…. car is smooth as onion. Still have to do skirts…one needs a bit of twerk..Brian Brian Dale Warrington made the skirts from scratch at Paint and Body by Dale Warrington.”

     

    “Front of 46… nice in final sealer…great to reach this point after 3 yrs non stop labor…just great.”

    Final steps before paint.

     

    Barry has some issue with the front wheel wells, so those need to be address , requiring some new metal work… but she is almost there. Put it up on stands to make blocking easier.

    Updates from the past few weeks…

    From Barry

    Back to beginning…. Not at all happy with my DeCarr wheel wells… decided to remodel…so …sorry Sunny Ackermann…I had too!!!

     

    Finally got the right side redone…kind of total mistake working with car on lift…wheel hanging way down ..total misfire….

     

    Little soft work today…closing holes in bumper and ready to section bumper guards….soon.

     

    Starting to do bumper guard tail lights.. starting to section guard today.

     

    Of COURSE…the guards are different…why would I think that??? 60 yrs doing it …still get fooled!!

     

    Plowing forward.. Sectioned guards…Man these are really beat up…
