    Good meeting you guys too!

    Me neither! This weekend really lit a fire under my ass. I'm actually excited for the body work coming up too! Weird.

    Haha. I hear ya. A lot of good inspiration there at the show. I can't wait to see your car back together.

    Even my wife called me at lunch and said, "We gotta work on that body and try to get that wrapped up before the Round Up. I'll help"

    WHAT? I guess she got some motivation also! haha

    Yeah! The engine "jewelry" is NICE.
     
  7. This car fucking rules! The perfect example of what a home built rod should be.

    Little Ubolt "Coats" as Lucky put it :)

    Need to paint the 3rd member black. Chalk that up on the "forgot to do" list. Oh and this axle is definitely temporary. Real deal chromed drop is gonna happen.

    I have little chrome and vinyl caps I'm making that snap onto the kingpin top and the kingpin bolt..

    Wow. So over the top! You've got style, Paul, for sure.

    And, as far as the axle is concerned.... turn it around, not many will notice that way.

    If it matters or helps any one make sure these two go together easy. If its hard then the torque converter isn't in all the way.

    Thank you guys:)


    Just for now, though I'm not running a full cooler. There's enough room to run a shitload of little coils (copper) and go back in. Screw the whole cooler in the radiator thing. I'm not running lines up there:)

    I love everything about this build, and that Firestone sign is cool as hell. I wish some kindly old geezer would bestow some cool hot rodding shit on my young, eager ass. Anyway, MORE PLEASE!
