    Firewall looks mint. Its a rule in New England that every panel has to be welded together from at least 2.

    I like those motor mounts. They're simple but still have a little detail.

    I'm buy no means an authority on what does and doesn't belong on some ones hot rod. But I personally couldn't resist putting some real or faux rivets in the round corners of the flat plate resting on the rail. I like'm that much to care.

    I was thinking the exact thing, I have a jar of old rivets, the hard part is finding 4 or 6 that match.

  7. Wow, amazing progress and work. I may have to go Wildwood just to see this car in person!

    Is that a Mallory coil on the cowl?

    Great work and save!

    I love this car so much!!! I will never be able to afford a 32 but I think that I can do some of the same tricks on my 30. Great job, keep it up and maybe just maybe I can make it up to the RoG this year to watch it run.

    I've been doing some boring stuff, nothing worthy of pics.

    Trying to make a good pair of latches, cutting the driveshaft and torque tube.
