A bit more progress. Picked up a pair of 4 1/2 x 15 Empi Fuchs to use for the mock-up of the fuel lines when I take it to Eric's. I didn't want the REAL ones on there! Also new tires front and rear, 145r15's and 195/65/15's.  New bunge hole welded into the new stainless exhaust for the o/2 sensor.

I took the '55 over to a co-worker who's a certified welder...Finished up the front firewall and channels. There's a lot going on in this tight little area, channels coming in, front firewall, pan bolts, ect. He did an awesome job, I think!

Looks good.  One step closer to getting it on the road again.

Fire wall completed! Should be ordering the rat rod black soon. Really happy with the way it came out.
