  • 1953 Wagon Progress #2

    Finally finished painting all of my sheetmetal parts for my '53 wagon. I will pull the engine and trans from the frame tomorrow and begin the process of painting the frame, rear end suspension parts, bat wing, etc. and then start to put it together for the last time. I will have been working on this project 5 years this coming March. I remember because my oldest granddaughter was born on the day I started to cut up my wagon to start this process. Here are some pics of the fenders and the chassis.

      You make me sick. That kind of terrific body work should be illegal. You're gonna make every other car look bad and no one is going to want to play with you.
      Looks awesome, tho

        I hope to have it completed by the endo of July, so bringing it to the zone meet could be possible barring any setbacks.
