The rear bumper has been finished for over a month now but here are some pictures. The first picture has been photoshoped to get a feel of how it should look rust free.

Nice work Zach. How will the lower corners be filled? Capped off where they currently end or extended and rounded a bit?

Alright, I got the carburetor rebuilt and put back on, and the 55 runs better than I ever thought it would. I would like to thank Ricardo for all of his help and advice, Sasha for his advice and the copies of the repair manual, and everybody else that gave me advice. So now I'll be getting back to more of those rust issues. Soon I wll get some pics up to show the difference from before to after.

Excellent work Zach. Glad to hear the pig is up and running - I'm looking forward to seeing the carb pics.

Got the front clip off of the donner car and and then we seperated the inner fenders from the outter fenders and now they are just waiting for some repair work. Sorry about the lack of pictures, I will try to get some up shortly.
