1950 Chevy Five Window Progress Update 03/20/2017

We are finally back on the 50 Five Window project again and have made some good progress.

Over the weekend we had to finish up painting a few small items. We painted the front bumper filler, a hood support, hold hold down and the Vintage Air A/C under dash vents. The vent under the dash comes in a textured black plastic so we decided to sand it smooth and paint it the color of the body. It looks so much better now.

  • Installed the door latches finally got the doors to close properly.
  • Finished hanging the under dash portion of the vintage air, had to make all the brackets since there were none.
  • Drilled holes and installed the side mirrors

I still need to figure out how the windows and tracks go back in the doors, that is a project for another day 🙂
