    Not truly a hiboy, since the body is channeled 2 1/2" over the Model A Frame...but I like it just fine IMG_0670.JPG IMG_0671.JPG

    I love the Balloon tires and the Firestone street tires upfront! Exact setup I ran on my car before changing to Big dirt track tires for T.R.O.G.WEST! I now have 18" in front and 17"x 7" rears!
    I love the way this car looks and will be putting mine back to these! The other set will go on my 34 5window coupe project!

    A quick question for all you A on A rails roadster owners - what the biggest recess in the firewall you have done/seen/heard of with a manual trans, and for it still to be use-able/comfortable to drive?

    Thanks in advance

    Guys with the A Bones, did you use the stock bottom seat riser or do you have the cushion on the ground? Trying to figure out how to get some more room in my '28. Things seem a little cramped in there.

    Thanks,

    I used the stock riser but moved it back about 3". Foam seat cushion. Sets good

    Thanks i appreciate it. It's is so funny how some people like the pipes and other hate it. I. Been thinking about doing some different headers I think it will make the car sound a lot more nasty.
