    After doing the headlight I cleaned all the rust off of the car and took to the local indoor car show. I forgot to mention that I picked up a McCulloch Supercharger for the flathead. I also found some vintage wheel covers that cover the entire wheel. I am using a '42 Merc cap for the center. Anyone have any idea what company made these wheel covers? They were made specifically for '40 Ford wheels and have no snaps on the back. IMG_4908.JPG

    After the car show I cut the rear wheel wells out and built new sub rails in the rear. I then built all of the rear floor pieces and a battery box.

    Next I built a hidden compartment behind the seat. The battery and several other electrical components will be hidden here. IMG_5136.JPG IMG_5137.JPG IMG_5138.JPG

    After finishing the floor I modified the original seat pan to clear the trans tunnel. The my buddy Tim and I built all of the wood panels. Next I took it up to ND to the upholstery shop I used to work at. There we made all of the foam. I designed and made all of the patterns for the material and then my buddy Mike sewed it all up. I think it turned out good.

    They are Packard headlights that I welded the front of a Ford bucket to so that I could use the 36 Ford Lenses

    Thanks Asphalt Demon. I only got 2 of them in a box that a customer traded me toward a bill. I had no idea what they were but I like that they cover the entire wheel

After mocking up as much as I could I tore the whole car down to a bare frame. I took the frame and chassis components to the powder coater. Next I assembled the chassis back into a roller. I then put the engine, transmission and exhaust back in.
