The most sheet metal this car has had on it since it got dropped off at my house. Sadly it’ll all have to come back off again. But hey a man can dream of having a complete car. Also, it has 4 tires on it. She’s a roller again. Next up get the drive train in it and get the ride hight dialed in. #squiresccnapacalif#squirescc
I put the finishing touches on my license plate set up on the #36buick I’m no expert nor that kool but I’m happy with it. The glass sides into position and my light idea worked. Time to move forward. #squiresccnapacalif
Well today’s little project. Trying to figure out the best way to mount the license plate. I think I’m on the right track. I’ll make my template for glass this week and double check everything before it gets welded in. #squiresccnapacalif#squirescc
Well good mail day. I got my @goodguysrodandcustom gazette. I keep hearing about the article but today is the first day I got to see it. Thank you 🙏 great write up and great shots done by @notstockphoto #pamela#squiresccnapacalif
When you’re friends with real metal guys and I’ve seen their perfect work, I doubt myself. But after finding this mess under lead I knew it needed to be fixed. @robbie.azevedo came over and told me what to do. Well I did it. Again I follow to many great fabricators, so they’ll probably laugh. But with my tools in my garage I’m happy. #squiresccnapacalif#squirescc
I finished up the rear suspension on the #36buick My good buddy Willie came over and rebuilt the Rearend and I got all of the suspension welded. Time to save for the front suspension 😬 #squiresccnapacalif
What a weekend. 2/3 of @squires_cc_napa_calif went down to #westcoastkustomscruisinnationals and we had a blast. Besides a little rain #pamela took home 3 awards. All of them were given by people I truest respect. Thank you to all and I am beyond blessed.
I swear I’m still building the 36. We’ve had some words lately but we’re working on it. Driver side windshield frame is pretty much wrapped up. The passenger side needs @robbie.azevedo expertise so that’s going to wait. I got the rear suspension out and waiting on the new leafs and hangers. Getting the new Rearend I’m putting in, rebuilt as well. I want this car to be a roller again. That’s all for now. #squiresccnapacalif#squirescc
Holy SH #+! I got my copy of @roddersjournal #81 last night. The spread that they did on my car is amazing. Thank you @roddersjournal great photos Steve and Geoff and a great story written by @curt_iseli I appreciate Curt writing such a great story and I enjoyed the time I got to hang out/talk with these fine gentlemen. Go grab your copy. Again thank you to EVERYONE that helped me get this car what it is today. Thank you @robbie.azevedo @jeremyjacksquirescc @worldfamouskylemartin @seangordondarnelle @johnsonskustomupholstery @steeringwheelkris @shermsplating @squires_cc_napa_calif @tompierce @paydaydavis and soooooo many more.
Happy Easter everyone. I got a few hours on the #36buick I chopped the windshield down 3.5” but while doing that I found out somebody did a little fixing on the right post. 1/2” thick of led kind of fix. So I guess I’ll be repairing that now. 🙄 #squiresccnapacalif
Well after 2 months of trying to make sure this body is de-wood and structurally stronger then what it ever was. I have a convertible again. First step of many to make this pile a Custom. #squirescc#squiresccnapacalif
Great weekend @goodguysrodandcustom #pamela made it to Top 5 and then won Custom of the Year. I had a blast talking to the other builders and hanging with family. Thank you Harry and Steven for the invite to even compete. And congratulations to all of the other builders. That was some tough quality builds. Thanks again to @robbie.azevedo for your help and @worldfamouskylemartin for the paint and @shermsplating for the chrome. And all the support my Dad and girlfriend @paydaydavis gives me. #goodguyscarshow
I told myself that my next project was going to at least run and drive. I didn’t listen. Here’s the start to this basket case. If anyone needs me I’ll be removing old wood and making it metal. First day in. #squiresccnapacalif#squirescc
Thank you to @kustomrama for picking my car for #kustomsbythesea @t.r.o.g._official It was a great show and we had a blast. Thanks again to everyone that helped me so much to build this car. Some raced a little too hard. #squiresccnapacalif
