    Hey man lookin good. I see your under the hood shots that the pieces funneling air back to and thru the firewall are gone. Mine are still under the hood, but not the last piece all the way to the firewall, and then I'm guessing there ought to be lovers and one can open and close to permit fresh air into the cab. Yours not having these, are you finding it to be of any negative consequense? I'd like to remove mine as has been done on yours but been wondering if it;s the right thing to do. Again, nice score

    Do you have any pictures of your front inner fender setup? I was looking at mine the other day and there's no way I can run the factory ones with my static drop.

    I know the feeling. Most of mine have been the same way. No room for them on a bagged/bodied vehicle

    I really need to spend some more time with my 50. I swear all i do is work. Took her out for a ride and saw that a fuel line was slightly leaking up front and tightened her up. I really need to deal with my Muncie issue. Or just switch to a better solution. and not to mention Better rearend/gears. And need to put my Steering Rebuild Kit in! I bought the kit in Feb of 2012 haha, 2 years? what is my problem.

    mine are bias G78's. You may want American Classic radials, Here is a link to the product page on the Coker website to give you an idea of what they look like and a bit more info.

    Same ones they used on the "Street Rodder Tour '51"

    Hey man, just read back through your whole thread again (yeah, yeah, I coulda spent that time in the garage making some progress on my damned car...). Your car's got me thinking about possibly bagging mine, but I don't want to notch the frame. I like the idea of having control of the ride height. I've got a few questions for you:

    I didn't see whether you notched the frame - looks like not?

    It looks like you had to notch the crossmember to clear the driveshaft?

    Did you ever get any pics of your front airbag setup? Any pics of the trunk/air setup?

    What kit did you use for your 4-link?

    Thanks!

    wow, i guess i haven't been here for awhile. looks completely different in the forum here.
    yeah i think i just posted some front pics up a few more posts above you here. ? and yes crossmember was notched and tunnel for the driveshaft to clear. the pan hard bar link setup was custom by my buddy Kevin at Just Plain Trick. i guess it depends just how low you want to go as far as how much alteration has to be done. im sure if you read through the thread you saw what a pain in the axx it was to get the headers to clear. was probably the hardest part of the whole build to me.

    I see the inner fender pics, but none of your front suspension.

    My car will have a 302, with Mustang shorty headers there's no real clearance issues.

    First off, i Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.
    Sold my Tahoe and my Lexus is on a Flat tire so i been rolling around in the '50 lately. I have to ask myself why i don't drive this thing more often. She is running really good. Just fixed a leaky Fuel Line and put a Heat Shield on my Starter. When i start her up and she is cold, she fires right up. But once she's warm she doesnt have the power or juice to like turn over most of the time. I thought it was a heat issue. Maybe i just need a high-performance starter? The Heat Shield was only like $20 :)

    couple pics the other day
