    killer work...

    this is just my opinion, but how about 6 rows of louvers in the belly pan?...3 on each side?

    Hey Larry
    I wasn't sure what I was going to do in the center area that's why I only did 2 rows..so yes a third row would fill in out nicely now that the center is done.

    Worked on the finned backing plate covers over the weekend..pretty much ready to go now that I figured out the cut outs for the wheel cylinders/brake hoses. I will cast up a filler block for the unused square hole (same casting fit either side) and get these things on the website!

    Things are heating up!! I can certainly tell that the building season has kicked off. Im in the process of making up a new line of dash panels... so stay tuned. I have been hammering on the 53 F600 Grand Slam and have the chassis all mocked up and motor repostioned now to move on the the suspension.

    Crafty, Sure do love that low slung F-600 ! Also like the air cleaners you made for your friend. Need to see if you could make something for my '29 "A" Modified. Like the tear drop look with wire mesh sides. My carbs are two one BBL Holley's off of early Econo vans.

    Will check your web site on the new backing plates. Keep on coming up with these wonderful parts !
