    Looking great. Let us know how you get on with the new stupid Warner gauges, or more to the point how long they last , well that was my luck after two replacement speedometers I gave up and put up with a third one and where it’s only the odometer now that failed, not the speedo as well.

    Man , I know, I’ve heard so much bad shit about these gages (especially the speedo) , and I’m actually a gps guy , but I have a 12 year old coupe that I have no clue to how many miles is on it. So I decided to run a speedometer on this build.

Chains, hooks, Cobra skin covers were a Fredericksburgs Tx swapmeet score nearly a year ago.

    I'd rather see a beat up original tailgate over a new aftermarket any day.

    Great work, Peck!!! Especially liked all the pics related to brackets and small things that hold the big stuff together!
    From the body first pictured to a nice solid unit with everything fitted properly, esp. the radiator, shell, and hood. (this area usually falls into a 'trap'. Too many Deuce shells ride too high on '28/'29s)
    Bravo. Love the windshield posts. Hey...You look good in there.
