That's the kinda attention to detail that wins shows. People who know what they're looking at notice these kinds of things.

This thing is gonna look awesome! One of my friends from highschool drove a completey all original and unmolested '64 Fairlane 500 as his first car. He and his dad found it in a garage. According to him, it was speculated that it sat for about 28 years before they rediscovered it.

gonna be a real show stopper. those hood tabs look like they could use a little cleanup though... with all the rest of the perfection you have going on.

Scotty does the metalwork, and when we get back to the paint shop, Kyle is every bit as detail oriented. So between the 3 of us, there shouldnt be much on this one that we miss.

I too saw mice in the title and read the first page and jumped here. I hate them as well and seem to have an endless supply at the farm. I use a product called FreshCab
in the trucks and tractors to help keep them at bay. little more pleasing the sinus cavity than mouse piss and ya know...

Nice progress on the car..

Awesome build! Ditto on the Fresh Cab, been using it in the camper for years.
You can get it on Amazon, sign up for auto reshipping. Cheap insurance and smells so much better than alternatives.
