    The rain stopped at lest for a little time,so got the rod outside to polish,first step was the old alum slots,rears had been just gray from someone sandblasting them long ago,and fronts never had anything done from new,whenever that was?,so showing dull of time. I sanded with wet n dry 1200 [hardist part]. Used Mothers alum wheel polish with that ball thing. Looks OK to me,so showed them off to the wife

    The whole car is looking great, Bat! The neat thing is it looks like kinda like it came through a time warp or worm hole from 1959 yesterday, but better than it could have been in 1959. You're doing a great job with it, and the wheels look pretty good to me, too.

    Thanks,yup I have added just a few things better then I had,new two tone upholstery[added yellow] with a folding top that actully has fabic on it, better headers then what I had made before,a chrome alt from my son,4 alum slots from Eddy with new R-tires added,not sure if the new alum rad is a upgrade,but the brass one is long gone. I'm happy about how it came back together.

    It looks great, and Ditto to what Roger said! It does look like something from the past. I might try your wheel trick with my aluminium slot mags when get gets to the road worthy status. I spent alot of time polishing one of them with multiple different wheel polishes a few years back. I have the Mothers foam ball thing too!

    Great work sir! How's the wife like the new version? And something that might help your polishing is to start with 600 grit, sand the wheel, and work your way up to 1200, and then even 1500 or 2000. Then polish. It will make them shine like crazy!

    Yup,I should of done polishing that way for sure,but shop supplys were low ,some wet/dry 1200 ,the water hose only,so I guess I cheated by jacking up one end of car let them spin slowly an wetsanded them { big mess but got smooth,and 1/4in. drive drill motor for the ball with Mothers. Maybe do some more on them in a month.

    I've seen quite a few threads with missing photos today. Perhaps something is wrong with the site?

    Hi Bat. I just looked over on my threads and all my pics are missing, too! I spent a lot of time doing a complete step-by-step build on my roadster; if all that work is lost I'm out of here!
