choptopfomoco/50 FORD

Where should I start?
I have been into auto body repair and building old cars and tractors since I was seventeen year's old. Actually a some body customizing since 15 year old.
I own Ozark Auto Body & sales inc. here in Harrison, although I dont go around much, My Son and two Daughter's manage and run the business now.
since my retirement I have been trying to finish a hot rod project that I started 17 years ago. in the last year Im gaining.
In this pic. album all the pics are not in order, the ford started out white(when I bought it) after a ton of work it ended up in red oxide primer. now its grey primer. I hope it will be cherry red in a couple months.
I have another album of the car while in pieces and on the rotisserie . If you like looking at car build pics I will post the other album later. Picasa Web Albums - Don Bailey - 1950 Fordchop

Yah, that dash looks really great. Also go a peek at a couple of nice looking tractors in one of those pics.

Thanks for looking at my child hood dream. Thanks for the comments.
Here are some pics of the dirty work being done in my home shop. After retiring and a couple days work on the car, I soon figured out that my old legs were going to suffer a lot. So I built a rotisserie ,using two engine stands and some new steel.
The yellow A was one of mine, chopped ,chevy 8, corvette chromed rear end. Good show car but to cramped inside.
