    Mediumriser,
    Great start I love the stance and the attitude of the car. The windshield is perfect. A couple of thoughts, I have an all steel full fendered 29. When I drive it I cant tell if it is made from steel or plastic I just enjoy the ride. Two suggestions one put the gas tank in the trunk it improves the ride and handling. Two if you dont have one, buy Mike Bishop's and Verne Tardel's "How to build a traditional Ford Hot Rod.
    Enjoy the ride!

    Have the book. Great info and we used some of the old tricks in the book.
    Thanx for all the reply's. I am shooting to have it on the road for Wades cruise-in on April 15th, but we are closing on a house soon so we will see what happens. In the mean time I will just keep plugging away.

    Well she runs good. Got wiring done and fired her up today. Held good oil pressure and stayed cool with my Ebay china alum. radiator. All left to do is wire front turn signals, make one more wood panel for floor and stain, trans tunnel, and make exhaust. Then as I'm driving it I will piece together my interior. I'll get new shots tomorrow.

    Sold the car over a year ago to a guy on here in Georgia. Then I got a message on here from a guy in Ohio with some Questions. So it appears its back in Ohio again.
    Started this a couple weeks ago.
