    I really like the stainless trim, and the contoured rear frame. But the front spring is still eating at me. All this goodness and style coming together, don't lose the flow with that booger hanging out front. :)

    Love the curved front of the frame. Just don't like the spring out front of the axle. It's okay on cars with frame horns, sometimes, but I think it detracts from your sleek modified. But that's just my opinion.

    Trying to keep it short as possible. I already have a car with a quarter eliptical front susp.(want to do something different) and I want to keep this as simple as possible with the parts I have. It should look O.K. once its all put together.
    Thank you for your insight. It's alway good when another set of eyes look at things

    Found a real simple seat for the car today. Its a neat little jump seat that will fold forward so I can get to things in the tail section like the gas tank and I will probably hide the battery back there. IMG_2543.JPG

    Got the front suspension tacked in this afternoon. I'm going to put the car in our local indoor car show as filler for the local club and its a bit of incentive to work on it. IMG_2548.JPG

    Gotta find me some wheels at the right perspective...Perhaps deep deep red, maroon, burgundy rims to match the flames​

    Heres another vision to ponder...Rusty if you have any pics of your T in the background on the same angle I could use those Tire rim combos.
