  13. What brake master cylinder did you use? Still using the stock pedal? Great work!!!
     
  14. Love the Channel job. Seldom done custom treatment, these days. Not for the faint of heart. Or those whom lack basic skills and good taste. Begged my friend, to section not chop, his Ford shoebox. No dice.Fitting a '62 Chevy bubbletop roof onto it.
