    Never seen bent wishbones like that. Interesting.

    I like the color you used.

    That roof look really nice. Great choice for a donor roof.

    I also like the carb scoops subtly peeking from the hood - it’s a nice touch.

    It almost makes me wish I had a hood on my ‘31.

    Way cool! I was going to take pics of a pair of hood sides I bought at community garage sale that had many of us baffled as to what they came off of. No one at the sale knew anything. Thanks to H.A.M.B. now I know.very few cars of the era had a single hood latch handle.Mine are rusty, but I got them stupid cheap.

    It's hard to put a new spin on a 31' but i think you have done it, looks great. Is the grill shell going to get shortened ,meaning more ground clearance or is that just the camera angle?. Nice job!.

    Well done Joe! You brought the 31 to Kingpins show in Salisbury last year, right? Neat build.

    The driveway will shorten the grill for me!

    Only kiding!... Now all the fluids and components are in just today I made a 1" spacer block for the front spring that brought the knee shocks back to level.
    Good eye, boss!
