So Cal Plating inspired 1936 Ford

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by nostalgia59, Dec 11, 2011.

  1. The 38 standard is considered the ugly duckling of Fords in the 30s (Though I loved my coupe dearly!), would it be too costly to source a 38 grille and work from that to do your front end?

    Your work is really awesome. Have you thought about if you will keep the running boards or remove them and re-work the bottoms of the fenders?

    Your work is almost beyond belief. PLEASE get back on this car asap. I can't imagine another car taking precedence over this build. A lot of us will be waiting for your priorities to change! And good luck with your RPU.
