    Man that’s such a great color. I considered doing my 27 roadster’s repaint in a color pretty close to it, Grigio Telesto which is from Lamborghini but decided on going with a garnet

    Getting closer, some nice machine work Danny, are you doing the wire bezels on a CNC?
    The ends would look good black anodized also, I like the black braided wire covers too.

    Single finger hood latches were an early 32 production item. Most original Ford ones had a flat side facing the hood. There are now repros available, but they don't have a flat side.

    There were flat and round sided single pulls. The repos are round and have a non ‘32 base on them.

    UPDATE:
    A few small details, and interior, and you can call this thing DONE!
    I would like to personally thank my family and friends who have made this car even possible. Thank you to all who have made positive and negative comments during the build. I take every one as inspiration to do better. #brucesrodshop #the32mafia

    From all angles this car is perfect!
    Danny, after some time on the road could you post your thoughts on the Coker Firestones.

    Based on dad’s roadster. They work great after a few warm up miles. Only drawback is the tire life. Could be better.

    Is the upholstery going in or are you taking a well deserved break? Thanks for all the posts so far. The photos have been great...……...

    One of, if not THE BEST, most detailed builds on the HAMB. :)

    Your skills are amazing. If only y'all were closer to Arkansas. I'm betting you could even improve on perfection, given the chance!

    Where is your top insert from? Is it a kit? Love your 32.
