Hello all, it's been a few months since I have had a chance to update my site. Today I had some free time to organize a lot of the photos of my tudor sedan restoration. Recently I have been working on the sheel metal like the fenders and running aprons. The guy who is painting my car and fenders, Mark, was kind enough to help me along with the process such a blasting and body working them one at a time.

My best friend Justin Brown has a 1968 Chevy C-10 Stepside that he uses as his everyday year round car. he is 19 years old like myself. This past year he got a 96 Monte Carlo to drive so he could restore his truck. I made a page to get his excellent progress and hard work known.

Just figured I would post that the chassis is done with a few small pieces needing paint in the spring(too cold to paint at the moment). The Body needs a few little finishing touches till its ready for paint. My goal is to have it pretty much done by the spring time. the first 75 degree days in spring the finall painting and body work will be done then it will get its color coats. once that is all taken care of 2 weeks of non-stop assembly work and I hope to be driving it.

The chassis is almost completely done just need to finish the rear drums and e-brake carriers. The e-brake carriers were bent and in need of bushings. I ordered some parts from brattons. they should be in by the middle of next week. Once they come in i can finish up the rear drums and it will be time to take it for a test drive around the yard!!
