    I like it!
    Just for your info a hemi will fit (between the frame rails) anywhere a SBC fits. Hemi's are rather narrow below the heads. I raced Hemi's, BBC, Rodex, SBC and various Ford's.

    Looks good. How is the front grill and chrome? That’s my favorite part of this model.

    I cant find a better center chrome strip. I have better head light rings and a pair of 39 Lincoln Zephyr bumpers for it.

    Great choice...My Desoto Hemi is pointed toward my roadster or tub. I have an Olds for my '47 Ford taildragger...Love those flare skirts! Rare...as are '39 Zephyr bumpers. Kudos to you for pursuing all the 'right stuff'!
    Also, congrats on the loss of previous install of air bags.
    To 'lay frame' is...well, LAME. (sounds like a contraction of the words, doesn't it?) :rolleyes:
