    For a thrashed together ride you did good. Not sure I would have done white rims with white walls. Maybe blue or ? .

    Made a few changes to the car. The windshield was a must. Not sure if the Lincoln caps will stay. If they do I think the wheels need to be blue

    Paint the wheels red---that was the style many,many moons ago we used to paint just the lip of the rims red on everything---with a brush ha ha:D

    So,you gonna run that in the mud?:eek: might not be a good idea with the white paint???

    Impressive thrash Clark. Do you fabricate the beam or use an available profile for those trailing arms?

    For such a quick build the roadster has held up very well over this past year. I give Clark an A+ on this one ! 47353_10201663434320159_1202104545_n.jpg 10363756_10202700842134706_7056514214160412878_n.jpg 10367131_10202700843614743_39498021543102651_n.jpg
