    Doing this one for a friend of my son -alot of work already done-some I will have to redo. I was just gonna wire it and put in AC but he wants me to finish it-install front clip etc-will see. Kind of a tight timeline, At 76 I'm not as fast at this stuff!! MVC-032S.JPG MVC-030S.JPG

    THX all-will be on it! Tight timeline and I don't like being under the gun-he wants it done in two weeks-maybe, maybe not.. Some work I will have to redo as well.

    WOODIE LOOKS GREAT
     
  8. Another request for the paint information (mfg, code, color name, etc). I'm thinking of refinishing my '40 Woodie in a color like that. I've been able to document that the car was originally delivered in maroon and have been looking for a great color like the one that the OP posted. Thanks for any info!

    How much are you thinking about raising the front end. It looks great, but the last thing you want is for those tires to mess up those front fenders. BEAUTIFUL!!!

    I think the stance looks nice as-is. Not too low, not too high.
     
  14. WOW! Awesome Woodie in a great color. I can only hope to get my '40 to look half that nice!
