Good score with the '40 brake stuff! That was my latest score for my '30 coupe also. From an old guy no less. Looks like we have VERY similar builds going on. Mine is '48 Flathead powered on an A frame with '39 trans, and '40 rear. Now about the perches, and shackles. Are you planning on using the '40 axle in the pic above, or do you have a dropped axle you got with the car. I can't remember. I have P&J perches on my front end right now. I had them laying around. They do fit nice. Im using an old MorDrop '40 front axle. I had the local spring shop make me a custom main leaf to put the spring over the axle where it supposed to be. I also had some P&J shackles. I used them for now but will probably swap for original "A" shackles for the "look". You could find some nice old "A" shackles and cut the brake pieces off. They would look like the P&J ones with a lil grinding. And theyre Ford pieces to boot.
