    Been hard at getting this 28 roadster going for Mr Arnett, started as a stocker, that we wanted to keep as correct as something a high schooler of the 40's would of wanted or even a Race of Gentlemen would want now, using as much original parts as we could . I'll try to catch the build up to date

    Unsplit front 32 wishbones
    32 front dropped axle
    Flathead
    39 tranny and rearend

    Installing the f1 crossmember
