Torchie, I agree with you about Chad. I couldn't watch much of his "defending myself episode". Too much insecurity for such an accomplished builder. His builds are so "out there" he should realize a lot of people aren't going to like them.
He has a strong fan base and should be proud of that. Look at all the gifts he gets.
He puts himself out there every day on You Tube. That's admirable. But he needs to develop thicker skin.
You are progressing just fine. Floor building in a custom is a thankless task.

Agree on all counts, bob.
If all our cars and trucks looked alike it would be boring. To say the least.😳
Thanks for the encouragement.
Iím just bummed that I didnít get more done on it before the weather hits.
Once I get the floor in I will pull the body once again and do the final weld in from underneath.
And while the body is off Iíll work on the chassis.
Iíve got plenty to do.

A generous gift from Bruno came today.
This is the shift lever and parking brake from a 1955 Plymouth.
I'm may end up using these components instead of the Dodge.
My understanding is that this came from a 55 Plymouth Dash that Bruno got from our late friend, WB3. So it's a double legacy.
This shift lever has a totally different mounting plate as well as size. And this parking brake handle takes up way less room behind and under the dash then the Dodge does.
Thanks again, Bruno.

What a unique and refreshingly original project. This will look awesome painted and i don't say that very often. Love the proportionally large diameter tires too.

Thanks OI and bob.
earthman. Those were about the tallest tire I could get. I like the wheel wells to be full of tire. There is another reason I used those sized tires too. I will speak on it at another time.🙀😜
