Wheel Covers Found

I purchased 4 really nice ’57 or ’58 ford wheel covers. They cleaned up real nice.  I haven’t decided if I want to use them, or the deluxe 1958 Wheel covers. They are a chrome hubcap, and are hard to find in such nice shape.

The Gold paint used in the middle might need repainting, which I’m not concerned about. When I repaint the gold anodized trim I bought with the Del Rio trim package, I’ll paint the gold sections of the hubcaps to match.


I finally picked up an Argon tank/cylinder for the new welder. I bought the tank outright, because renting didn’t make sense.  The type of welding I am doing meant I would be using an Argon 75% Oxygen 25%  mix.

It’s been awhile, so I thought I had better update everyone.

I received the Welder last month, and this weekend purchased a welding cart for it. I am all set up for welding, with the exception of an Argon Gas Tank/Bottle. I will be purchasing that soon.

I have been checking the under floor bracing and discovered that they are in very good condition. They are solid, and will be able to re reused.  This is a good thing, because the car has close to 10 of them, and they cos over $100 dollars each new!

I laid down the front floor pan and traced it out against the old floor pan. It looks like it will be just the right size to take car of all the rust.

I am getting anxious to get started, as getting the floors replaced, sealed, and primered is my goal to reach by the end of summer.
