    There is going to be a lot of chrome on this little Ford. I wasn't able to get as many pics as I would have liked, but this should give a good idea. The radius rods, front axle, unsplit wishbone, and rear axle halves were like polishing an engine block, a really old, weathered, and rusty engine block, lol. Despite my whining, I think they came out well.

    i really want to see this car when it's done.

    Thanks for the pics Josh. The chrome looks great in person, and I look forward to working with Dave on getting things rolling as well as getting some more chrome to you!

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Is there more chrome to be done for Dave's 32?

    I cant say for sure, but I think thats the plan. We have most everything to get it rolling now and that will be the focus... there are other projects here and their that have surfaced and pushed this coupe on the back burner, but this latest batch of chrome got us fired up.

    Some of the parts are different from the ones we used in mock up I believe, all and all though, Dave has a very nice collection of original parts. Its been fun and quite an honer to have the opportunity to "play" with that stuff. I tried to leave as much original material and work on this thing to retain some character and soul, even though everything will be freshened up.... make sense!??? ha... anyway thanks!
    Glad you like, thanks for lookin!

    Too true Brent. May we rejoice in the memory of Mike and be in awe of the skills he displayed in his oh-so-too-short life. R.I.P.
