I do have a chunk of a real 550 on my desk, it was burned, but no VIN attached. Also, I think the car has been fully restored and on the show circuit now.

Lots more measurements taken today off of 0054. Very motivating to see such a cool car!

This is a real one too in Melbourne Adam. In the fox Car Museum
Apparently it was severely damaged all the way to the firewall. They rebuilt it by taking measurements from Jerry Seinfeld's car then made a buck
Later on they lazer scanned Jerry's car too

The next big push will happen in a few months, waiting for some prep work and scanning so we can have an accurate buck to start the real shaping. Stay tuned!

We beat metal today like we were mad at it. Making some good progress on the car, two more days of beating, shaping, beating, and fitting.

Ok, so both rear fenders are now done, hoping to have the tail ready to display at the open house in a few weeks.

Another amazing recreation in the works, looks great so far. Must be hard to find the time to juggle this and the 904 project.

This must be the shop in CT that offers classes I have seen advertised, have heard great things about them.

Best of luck with both projects!
