    Congrats @benniesrad, Hotrod looks fantastic...certainly a proud moment for you...I'm sure theres more to come but thanks for sharing this well executed build and journey.

    I just did the math and we are paying about $4.73 a US gallon here...to your $3.83

    I second Stogy’s comments and I raise your gas prices to a whopping $6.50 equivalent out here for premium!! Not very nice on the pocketbook. Keep the pics coming B

    Bennie, looks great. I hated to see all that craftmanship of your metal work covered over with that sound proof material. You are one great artist on this build. Love the paint choice , looks bad ass. I'm getting closer on finishing my build also. 20190526_131220 - Copy.jpg 20190526_131705.jpg

    I wouldn't trust that gas jockey, looks shifty to me. Sweet car though!

    Wow. Just read the entire thread. This has been an excellent build, great work on the bead roller for those extra nice touches.

    Very nice job!
    I'm going the same way...30 coupe on a 32 pinched frame. What did you do on your frame for the body mounts ?
