    thanks,

    I am going to still make the roof look like a special coupe when the time comes. I do have the moulding that goes around the back of the car to complete the top.

    I am running a 31 visor, and a 34 buick dash with a 40 ford column lock, and a fatman steering wheel, if anyone was wondering about them.

    I am also digging the T wheel and flathead. It is hard to tell in the picture but what exactly are you using for head bolts?

    Thanks.

  20. Very nice. It looks like you are a pretty good fabricator. Dash looks good in there. At first I thought it was a Chevy but now I see that little detail in the center and I like it. Keep it going!

    Nice work, and I like the dash - the inserts have a cool layout, but what're they made of?
     
  27. Nice build! Great progress!
    I'll follow this one.
     
  28. Great car. I really like that dash. Thanks for the pics.
