Update on the 56 Chevy

I haven't posted too much on it, because my uncle has been working on having a new built, but lately he has really been working his butt off on the car.

When I was up there last I spent a day and sanded on it the old paint in order to rough it up so that new primer and paint would stick to it. He had been doing a great job on patching up any holes in the body and rebuilding a few trouble spots on it. I covered most of the area on the car while I was there.

After I left he went to work on getting the body work finished on it. After that he started with the primer.

Now he has started on putting the yellow on it. The front half of the car will be yellow and the top and rear of it will be white with maybe a little pearl in it. the split will be along the trim lines. You can sort of tell where those are at on the primed car because of the holes for the trim clips.

The dash is also going to be yellow as well as the trim pieces inside the car. I don't know for sure what the interior is going to be yet though.

He is doing a great job and I can't wait to see it in person when I go up there for New Years.

    It’s great to see some shots of the paint going on the car!

    I can’t wait to get behind the wheel and do some burnouts…
    you’ll be riding in the middle of the back seat, right?
