    Amazing inspiring work as everyone agrees. However I've yet to see a model a coupe that looks better without a visor. Just my two cents. Thanks

    And suddenly my 200 dollar model A looks a bit like a 32 and will have a ton of people scratching their heads .

    Just noticed how the X member gussets make the firewall meeting look a lot nicer. Never noticed how the front legs attach on '32 chassis that used a 35-40 X, is the 41 longer? Bob

    Yes windshield will open just like any other early ford !

    No idea in the length Bob but I really like the look of it coming forward . I placed the x member where I wanted the pedals and where ever the rest fell into place is where it went !

    Nice chop. I'd love to see the 32 top front put on. Also would like to see the top filled in welding.
