McFly, it's looking really good.  Keep it up !  Threads like this are making 5-w coupes grow on me.

Looks to be coming along nicely. ;)

Thanks guys.  I'm having Fabian @ Vintage Hammer do all the sheet metal work and build my roller.  When that is done, the 5W will come home for me to finish it.  Fabian does amazing work!!  The original chop was really bad and he has rescued this 5W.

Fabian Valdez is a great metalman, and a nice guy to boot!  He came to Austin with Tom Branch 3 years ago (or so), and I talked to him a while about the repairs he did to Tom's roadster.  Yeah, if he can't get it right, no one can !

It's been a while.  The wallet needed a break.  :o

Fabian is back at it and doing great work as usual.
