    Very nice car. I like the color. what is the color called, and paint brand?. The color looks close to mine. by the way where did you find the outside mirror, I have been trying to find one similar, but not having much luck.

    Are you sure this is your first hot rod build? Damn nice car. Now go pile the miles on it!

  21. I was expecting a more cramped floor due to the engine set back into the firewall, but that looks pretty good from here. Excellent choice in motors!

    EBay, accessory outside Peep mirror. I found a few, scored a neat one for my F100.
    Seller: Chevy Pit Stop, Chatsworth, CA. $21.99? They have an assortment...

  23. You do realize a 3" chop on a Tudor and a 3" chop on a coupe will be different?

    That A is PERFECT! So simple and understated. Love the wheel tire combo.

    didn't use the stock gas tank. Used a Tanks Inc tank, one of the few modern things on the car

    I picked up the mirror at a swap meet. It's an old mirror not newer repo. The paint is original Henry colors. It's 2 tone Elkpointe green and Kewanee green.
