It's starting to look like something! Thanks for the (detailed ) updates.


Thanks. It's going to look pretty okay after the next and hopefully last coat of resin and a then some sanding and polishing.

But I need to get going on the modified air cleaner to make it all work.

I am in the process of selling one of my cars (93 Audi S4 sedan) and I am getting a bit distracted.

Okay. My 350 hp 1993 Audi S4 quattro sedan (probably capable of 160 mph because they could do 150 mph with the factory 227 hp)that I had for 2 months short of 20 years and put a lot of blood sweat and $$$ into sold. Bye.

Back to the 56 Dodge.

Been working on the carpet install which has meant working on the C and B pillar covers so I can hold the new windlace in place. Today while the new paint on the B-pillar covers was drying, I started to play with the air scoop.

Dug into the foam core and extracted about 85% of it. Then I trial fitted it again into the space between the rad support and the right grill bar. Fits better than I remembered. Plus a piece of 4" PVC fits perfectly into the remaining 1/2" of the 4" coupling that I left in the scoop. I need to cut that piece of 4" PVC shorter and paint it. I also need to totally remove the foam core (somehow), add a final coat of resin on the outside and finalize the 2 or 3 options that I have for an anti-squirrel grill in the front of the scoop.

Photos from today:

Now you need to paint the inside of it black to make it less visible from outside the car.

Absolutely. That was always part of "the Plan". Flat black yet. However, I can't do that until I get rid of all the white polystyrene beads. I've only used a 1" putty knife so far but will be getting out the big guns in the next few days. There is a possibility of Acetone being used.

We'll see.

I will post a photo when it is done, i.e. another coat of resin on the carbon fibre and maybe on the inside too.
