Front drivers quarter and half pass side and apron are from that fjord blue 58 rag we cut up last year, spare tire shelf is from a guy in town building a 54 who had some donor shit left over.
All the metal going back in this is all era correct German stuff =D>

Sold the extra pair of hens teeth vert semaphores for $$$$ which covered to the dollar rebuild goodies from Matt for the OG semis, vert chassis stiffener rails from gerson and some rear crossmembers from mika in Finland \:D/

Yes, that's what every fair skinned red headed woman needs is a car with no roof :-"

She has given me the go ahead on a vert in the past, remember that '55? I'm actually the guy who's more particular about what we buy nowadays....I want cars I can finish and drive in this lifetime ](*,) , something particular is on my radar screen right now, and it's not a type 1 [-o< [-o< [-o<

Gotta admit that semaphore ribbed door verts are the shiz though....and this one's color is Amazeballs

True story! =D> Killer parts!

We pulled her back off the pan and cut the crusty stiffener rails off the heater channels lastnight. Also grafted the original body number into the replacement shelf, Jrod TIG'd it in =D>

I will never understand why someone would destroy a set of semaphores on a car.
