Roadster is about done other than some minor details. We are heading to Detroit on Thursday morning.
Beautiful car. You've done well, young men.
I do know that Vince would like it . You're on the home stretch now , looking good .
It's been raining like crazy lately, got a minute to look at it outside as a whole car.
That's just plain BITCHIN'!
This car is so clean... Can wait to see it tomorrow.
Looks like you're ahead of schedule! I wasn't sold on retaining those hood sides when you started the project, but now that its done I love them. They really make the car. Has Mr. Eastwood seen any pictures of the car recently? Job well done! It turned out killer!
El Hueso, I totally agree with you on the hood sides and if I was building the car from scratch I would have never built sides like them. I thought keeping them was important to retain part of the cars identity and history and I think the subdued color dumbs them down enough. I really dig the hood top and sides now and glad I kept them. Pete saw a couple pictures of the car on our company Facebook page and said "looks great". I am really proud of the car and appreciate the compliments and input!
Rightfully so, hard work and commitment works every time.
Looks ready for the road! Nice job!
Thank You Denny!
Thanks Lynn, as soon as this weather gets better I will be roadstering!
I'm diggin' the Shit Brindle brown Ford truck.
The roadster is ok too.
Holy Shit! Is this The actual Jim Harrison back on the Hamb?
I heard you posted update pics. Hadn't had time to stop by, so I had to log on and check it out!
I'm gone again now though.
And knowbody even cares...
Bitchin roadster... fantastic work.
The color is very different yet quite suttle. It will however make a great difference when it's among other cars.
Thanks, I was going to originally paint the car black but I thought the tunis grey would be elegant and make the car more identifiable. Don't get me wrong, I still love a black 28/29 roadster!
The reddish interior really pops when you see it outside.
Thanks, I hoped for the interior to be a little more dark maroon but I think the color pops pretty good.

Beautiful car. Can't wait to see it in person!
Love it but the lights are lying.
Yeah, lights make it almost look black.

If I hadn't known better, I'd have thought you changed paint color to black since your last post, I had to go back and look to see if I had dreampt seeing it in grey body color.
Again, great job.
