  8. Looks good, 4 speed as well. It always throws me, when I see current pictures, from northern states, and there is no snow. We're waist deep right now.

    cheap/dirty--Look'n good.
    Question-- how does one forget he has a 25 louver hood?
    BTW is Nichols steak house still in business?

    I can usually remember all the parts that I collect for a project. This hood I don't remember ever getting. Nichols closed 3 years ago.

  14. Looks like coated fuel and brake lines you used, what is it? Kiwi Konnection frame?
    Looks real nice, I love a finished chassis that clean.

    I got my new wheels and tires today. I shot pictures of it with just wheels, then with just hub caps, then with caps and trim rings.

    just finished putting in a '66 327 chevy with 350hp cam. it runs so much better than the 305.

  19. 327 and a 4 speed. I run the same combo, right out of my high school days ('65-'68).
    Well done.

    I'm so happy for you, a little jealous too as my roadster project has been stalled for far too long. Seeing more of these come together I'm finding myself motivated to get back on mine.
    Thanks for the updates.

  25. Looks really good. I wasn’t sure what direction you were headed when you started but I can see where your going with it now.

    Neat car.

    That SBC and 4 speed combo is just right for this Hiboy...Paint is beautiful, I thought you were going to just a 'red'.

    Have you taken a heat gun to the 1/4 upholstery panel alongside the seat? It'll shrink it right up, after a fine mist spray of water.
    Even a hair dryer, not as much concentrated heat as a true heat gun.
    I like the deep dropped tube axle, too. Just looks 'right' on this roadster.
