    Thanks Guys for the much needed pick me up's it sure is a slow go doing this re-hab thing

    I did a crash and burn a few days ago and was very lucky not to break any thing. so now it is a slow deal as I learned my lession being way too macho and trying to get up to speed over nite

    Maybe I need some M & H.s on my walker to speed it up a tad

    Ya know, my old Anglia (avatar) was built in the mid 60's. Front end was never raised -------------------------- never will be.
     
  8. good point, so a raised nose is not a "Must Have".

    If that's what you want, that's cool, but don't recall anywhere it says it has to be that way.
     
  16. We shall see as I look at it more. I want mine to sit like Dons avatar vice a street rod look. Thinking 1.5 inch raise would do that.

    Every time I see your car don I just can't stand it that thing is so badass on another note I had a customer bring me this 37 to build it already has a good start and the real kool thing is my dad built this car for the owner 30 years ago now it's back in the same shop as it was then

    Hey Bender

    Will it be a streeter or racer and you do have a great start, I had a little less as it was raced at the lakes in F/G with a GMC 6 witch the owner kept

    When I bought my new grille I had a chance to buy 12 sets of new running board rubbers and since mine were gone too who needs them right, was that ever a big mistake as I could have sold them many times over

    Looking forward to seeing how the 37 turns out

    Joe they beat me up in other areas, so I wound up on my back for 2 months, now learning to walk again, back is great legs are junk but up 1/4 mile a day now walking

    Will take more than this to keep this crusty old down, way too much stuff to build

    Picked up a tow rig for when I get the stude running. Unfortunately I had some other home projects come up and slowed the gasser build. 1466526862136.jpg
