  1. Looks really good. Do you plan to narrow the bumper and tuck it in at the front?

    Cool that you reversed the original rims!! Most people had just got the easy way and get aftermarket chrome reverse

    No pics of the brakebooster but it is similar to the ones speedway motors are selling for 1940s pick up trucks.

    Alot of straightening, welding, fitting and leading of the hood since it was really beat up, also made it one piece.

  29. Looks like Chevy could have made this car, it´s really right.
    Will you chrome the trim over the top of the grille or mould it? I think chrome would look good, but it´s all $$$ I know.
