    Josh came over tonight and helped me set the body on the frame. I have some modifying to do but it will work out I think. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1427337832.530065.jpg

    It's a Oliver tractor. I might hack it up and see how it looks not sure yet. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1427377454.759526.jpg

    Tractor shells can be tough to get to look right but that one certainly has potential. You could run some masking tape lines back to the cowl and get a good idea how it flows with the car and jives or does not jive with your vision. I wouldn't try to section it with all the lines it's got going on; I'd be inclined to hog out some material from the bottom and get it over the spring and axle a couple inches or so.

    I had the wide fives left over from my 28 so that's what I'm running. This car is all built from cast offs from other projects. Might even use that hood I got from you.shush don't tell.

    Steal a shelf out of your refrigerator and make a verticle bar insert for that grill shell- it looks pretty tasty just the way you've got it sitting there. Excellent work- you're cookin' now!---- Watch out N.J.!!!! , serious "Torrnados" in the forecast!!

    Had to rework the rear bones to gain more frame clearance for the suspension without raising the car.Josh Fredette and I made up some brackets and cut up an A drag link . I'll have to figure out some new shock mounts but other wise am pretty happy with the outcome . ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1428185882.604930.jpg
