Hi All
Some pics of my '48 Chevy build.
Very nice.

Are you planning all original rebuild or something different?

Thanks Johan
All parts are original, but not going to be a full original build.
Suspension is original with some strengthening.
Jag suspension front & rear
454 gen 6 BBC
4CM chop
Interior will be a combination of old & new.
No chrome and emblems
Some special design changes on the load bin.
Cab was painted this past weekend.
If all goes according to plan, the doors, hood, rear fenders will go to paint this week.
Load bin should get paint next week.
