    You know you've got class when your hot rod is being built in the same shop as a Ferrari. :cool:

    Scott: What style headlights and mounting brackets are you running? I always liked the bigger looking lights and want to use them on my 5w Coupe.

    Thanks,Joe

    Ford Commercial lights and Rudy made the stands....I like them tight to the grill so you can't miss those heads.......

    They were cut smoothed and shaped around the heads....The hood was made to be one piece with a pin release spring loaded post and nut. I am looking for some vintage shocks if anyone knows of any. I am trying to find some old "Velvet Ride" or anything that is better then just stock ones....

    beautiful, ....beautiful!!!

    i have a question. what are the plans for the radiator since the flatned front crossmember is now in the way of the water outlets??

    will the radiator be sectioned ?

    We are having the water inlet and outlet moved to allow for the lowered blower belt, thats why the cross member was done....

    For some reason those Enderle arms makes sense to me....I mean it's not like YOU are going to grab the speedway catalog for anything on this car. Ardun, S.Co.T, Kinmonts??? You had me at hello.

    I'm always amazed that 2 97's is enough for blown Ardun. You'd think 3 would be what's needed for this thing but so many swear by the same setup you're running.

    I'm itching so bad to get on my '33 but I'm just not ready yet. I have most of the parts but I know it's gonna be the small stuff that kicks my ass again on that car.
