    When I was in my teens [ 1950s] an building my first hotrod,there were two things I could aford to do,drill sexy holes in my parts and polish hell out of anything that I could get to shine. I built a lot of cars over the years with the same plan. I still have my first baby and have lots of fun driving her around.

    Wouldn't "more" equal less when it comes to holes? :rolleyes:

    Not that many holes, but under the box is riddled with holes though.
    Just installed this 41 LHD box with rhd internals on a historic pre war built New Zealand race car. Had a flattie originally but it was upgraded to a 331 in the late 50's

    I'm building a Sports Rod using a '25 T body. Trying to save weight anywhere I can. Engine mounts, radiator/grille shell mount, batwings, steering box mount and even added some to an old Superior steering wheel I'm using! I'm sure there will be more lightness added as I get further along.
    Cheers,
    Stewart.

    Here's some more drilled stuff, fueltank brackets and some belled holes on the inside of the trunk. The plan is the get these brackets chromed.
