Default Update on '55 2DHT ProStreet in tropical Minnesota

Guys, it's been a while since I've given any updates. The sad fact is I'm moving SLOWLY on this project. IBM doesn't give me a ton of free time during the week, so I'm only able to get to my shop most Saturdays. But there is progress--and I'm excited about that!

I've been spending my winter in the trunk. Tons of fun. But I had to fabricate a new trunk floor (cut a beautiful new trunk floor into 5 pieces and then welded them together) to work with my S&W back half. Along the way I had to put new trunk side-walls in. And inner corners, outer corners, tailpan and brace. I can make nice gaps by adjusting the lid. Later.

Today I finished the wheel opening on the left side and am ready to take on the mini-tub! I'm happy with the results.

As for those welds that haven't been ground & dressed yet...it'll happen soon. Right now I'm concentrating on getting things fabricated or installed.

That's it for today...hope to get the passenger side wheel opening ready tomorrow or Saturday, and start fabrication of my tubs Saturday. I hope to be able to close the trunk in a couple weeks then move to the other end of the car, where I'll install new toeboards and firewall pockets.

Jay
