    More "bling"

    Pagan posted his "bling" right as my dad and I started putting together our own "Bling".

    We just got the chrome parts rechromed for the 1940 Chevy, and are now putting them on the car. Our goal is to have it all done by wednesday for the Cruz-in. If all goes to plan, my dad will drive the Chevy, I will drive the Model A to the Cruz-in. ANYWAY..heres some before shots:



    Paint And body work finished


    (We since took the bumpers off to be rechromed)

    Here's how it looks NOW:

    Adding the Hood Pinstripe Chrome


    Preparing to put the chrome grill in place


    Grill In place


    Trim added to grill, Front and rear bumpers attached.

    I'll post the whole car when it's done, right now space if fairly limited in the garage to take pictures. (BTW, I did the grill and Front bumper) My dad and I Both did the pinstripes and rear bumper)

    Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

    UPDATE: The running boards are completely redone and attached to the car since the last pics were taken. The 40 Chevy and 29 Ford have been garaged for the cold weather months but we still occasionally take out the 54.
