I think I got the pics resized and boy do I hate windows 10! Here's some of the metal replacement. I'm use to structural welding. this thin sheet metal and having to spot and move around don't feel right!

I didn't get all the pics i wanted to add, it's a pain!
anyway, all the metal work fwd of the rear tires is done. I've got to replace a quarter panel and the trunk floor and there's a few places around the trunk lip I need to address.

Mean while, I realized this project ain't going to be done before crusin the coast so the wife and I bought a running car we can enjoy now and take to crusin the coast. This has slowed progress on the 58 but we have had a blast with this thing! We take it to some local car shows and cruise ins. I love driving around in it and riding in it.

1948 Dodge D24 2dr sedan. Still running the 6 volt positive ground. It has the fluid drive transmission.

It's been a while since I posted any progress but I'm making slow progress. All the metal replacement is done except the trunk weatherstrip channel. I had to replace about 80% of the metal behind the rear tires.

I am the worst about not stopping and taking photos, my son gets on me all the time for that. I didn't take photos of after I fixed the rear window channel or replacing the package tray. The previous owner had a AC unit under the package tray and cut holes for the duct in the Package tray. The AC unit is cool (Chrysler air temp)but I've elected not to use it. I'll do a under dash unit.

Then it was on to stripping the car. I don't ever want to do that again! I used to aggressive sanding disk and have some deep scratches in some places.

Lifted the body off the frame, POR-15 the bottom of the body and the frame. Clean the motor up a bit, set it on the frame, Lowered the body back down on the frame with new body mounts. Oh, also painted the firewall the final color.

A little more progress, got the steering and brakes done. Got the rearend built and installed. I used an e-body rear and the pinion angle is to steep. I ordered 6 degree shims to take care of that problem. There is not enough room above the tank for a retro fit efi pump. I'm going to use a low pressure pump to supply a surge tank with a efi pump in it.
What a pain it is to add pics.....I'll have to add pics when I'm able to resize them.

I'm going to use a fitech command center 2 so I needed a return to the tank. I used a fuel cell pickup setup and have the hose in the tank where it is submerged in fuel, unless I run really low on fuel. My intention is not to introduce air bubbles in the fuel.
