I feel the same.
If i ever build another hotrod its going to be a 32.
Big and roomy. Just throw in stuff without to much thinking.
It is what you make of it ...
That’s why I said fun. Challenging at times but it’s a blast.
I thought it was about time for a updated avatar.
Somehow that little picture seems distorted compared to the original
That needs punctuation between those two words. JW
yea, the avatar pic looks a little squashed

I’m going to mess with it to see how I might be able to change it
Just crop the top and bottom of the picture to make it square and you should be good to go. The car looks great!
Proof of life I’m using weatherpack connectors for my tail lights and license plate lights and hooked up some power for a little test.
IT ALIVE!!!!! Well almost.
Single weatherpack for the licence plate lights and double for the tail lights.
Woohooo! and it looks like all the smoke stayed inside the wires...awesome!
Those weatherpack connector systems are very nice. They make for a clean and worry free connection. I used several of them for my front end wiring on my 49 Ford truck. When I need to pull the front clip I just open the connectors and I'm all set.
Rear lighting done. Secured in place working as it should

Very clean job, nice!
It's getting closer and closer to being done. Excellent craftsman ship as usual Larry.
A little more progress today.
I decided that I wanted to support the gauge wire harness on the back of my dash.
So, I fabricated a little bracket that mounts to the back of the dash and is held in place by 4
10x32 countersunk machine screws.
That way I could loom and mount the harness using more Made for you T clamps.
After that I had my wife provide an extra set of hands and we installed it and kept all the paint intact.
Moving along closer to the road
Very nice, Larry . JW
Holy smokes! I'm glad to see you making progress
That is one super clean wiring job on that dash Blue One. It's a shame no one will be able to see it when looking at your car.
Luckily for all of us, Larry has documented every stage of the build, so all us HAMBers get to see it.
Looks like I missed a couple posts! Wiring is looking sharp. the back of the gauge panel is sharp looking and another good idea
Thanks guys, this is one reason why I have taken so long to get to this stage in the build.
I’ve done this sort of thing on every inch of this project even though you won’t see the majority of it.
But driving down the road I’ll know how I built it
