The last part of the build for Fred was to add the accessories, and being a stickler for detail, he insists that he still hasn't found everything he's looking for. Here is a list of some of the rare and vintage parts he has already added to the '54: a front cattle guard, spare tire mount, suitcase holder, 15-inch artillery wheels, swamp cooler, GM tissue dispenser, tobacco pipe and holder, vent shade for mirror, window rain shields, factory option radio, skirts, flashlight and holder, hat holder, sun visor, vanity mirror, fender wrap around trim, compass, traffic light viewer, flag holder and rear window blinds. No detail has been spared in this thorough build, and you can rest assured that one day this avid parts hunter will have everything else on his list!
Fred has been lucky enough to have a supporting wife and family to be there for him through his projects, and they also support his passion for the Lowriding lifestyle wholeheartedly. This can be seen in his past builds, and the new projects that he is working on. Keep up the good work, and keep on teaching! Viva El Profe!
