    I moved my seat backrest back six inches so I could have some additional leg room. It was easy enough, and made a huge difference. tub 006.JPG

    That's a neat idea.
    But I'm not a very tall (5'9") or heavy (150lbs) person by any means so stock location will probably be okey for me.

    Pushed it outside to have a little look, looking pretty promising IMO.
    Think I'm going to add atleast 2 more leaves to the front because I think when the spring settles after some driving it will become too low in the front.

    And a bonus picture of one of the new doors in the making, although I can't take any credit for the metal work.

    This will be all for a while, I put the car in storage at a different location because my new (to me) '53 Customline will be arriving any day now and I need the space in my garage to get that ready for this years driving season.

    Even if this project is stalled at the moment due to my Customline that doesn't stop me from buying parts for it.
    Latest aquisition is a set of Ford script hubcaps that I bought from @Hitchhiker, great guy to deal with.

    Not mint condition but perfect for this car.

    Paying for them is the problem

    You both are speaking the truth.
