    Thanks guys. My wife was also instrumental in getting the Appleton and Fenton headers as well as the original 41 plates . She knows her stuff. She is a full supporter of the kustom addiction

    Sweet! It will look good with the flippers. How is it lowered? Sounds like you have a great wife!

    Nice! I've always loved the '41's. One of the nicest factory grilles Ford ever did. Is there a chop in it's future?

    Thanks.. the 41 fords are so beautiful and open to either minimal kustomizng or a lot and still retain its amazing lines. I want to chop it but I love the lines it has. The decision is so difficult

    Absolutely awesome. Congrats on a great mild custom.

    I'd either leave the roof alone or give it a Matranga hardtop chop. No middle ground! :D

    Thanks so much.. it's hard to know what to do . The matranga chop is perfect for this style ride and is one of the best looking if not the best chop on a kustom

    Thank you ! I know what you mean the factory lines are pure beauty. The flow is so nice . The Art Deco nature of these rides is perfection in my book
     
  24. Chopping the short door '41 is a lot like deciding whether or not to chop a '40.. That roof is so nice right from Henry!
    Righteous ride just as it is!

    if chop is right, keeping the fluid flowing lines of the body it can look very Cool - could not quickly find example 20170420_195933.jpg pic except from a Discovery Channel reality show called Misfit Garage(season 1 episode 19 - Crushed GTO and Chopped '41 Ford)

    Exactly ! The lines are damn near perfect. If a chop were to take place it would have to be like the Jesse Lopez ford. The chop is beautiful on that 41.
     
  27. Very nice.
    Did you keep the fifty?
