Tommy Kelly came by the shop last week to pick up some more parts for the Bel Air. Check it out…
CPP’s Jeff Norton and Kelly and Son’s Thomas Kelly go through the Currie Rear End Kit that has been customized for their Bel Air project.
Work continues on the Bel Air and things are starting to take shape. Jose worked hard on the rear inner fender wells to make them nice and clean.
New floor panels from CARS Inc. have been installed.
Next, the firewall from Hot Rod Dynamics is mounted and ready to be cut and welded. Looking good, guys!
- A new Hot Rod Dynamics firewall will be going in along with hood hinges from Eddie Motorsports.
- Kelly & Son’s lead body man Jose, made room for the proper amount of rubber with a mini tub in the rear.
- A new quarter panel from Cars, Inc. was mocked up. (You can see the pre-drilled holes ready for the iconic Bel Air trim to be added later.)
CPP is excited to be a part of this build project…be sure to check back for the latest updates.
One of the first things to do on a project like this is blast it down to the bare metal and remove the filler. This will uncover the good, the bad and the ugly. The good: the floorboards are in decent shape. The bad: there was a lot of body filler discovered on the exterior. The ugly: there will be additional work needed to make it perfect.
Mitch Kelly, of Kelly & Son, thanks the owner of Blasting Specialties & Powder Coating in Commerce, CA for doing a great job on the ’57 project car.
Bad in Blue will be at the Goodguys show in Scottsdale Arizona on March 8th to March 10th 2013. Hope to see you there.
