    Logo for "Kroil, the Oil that Creeps"
    A friend gave me a can and I was so impressed with it, I decided to use it as a "theme" for the car.
    Thus, the "Kroil Creeper"

    Bought these at the Dragstrip for 25 bucks and figured I'd play around with them. Had to cut up the driver's side because of the steering box and shaft- didn't work ( way too tight).

    I ran a thread on here asking for pictures of "A"s with fenderwell headers and saw a picture where someone had run them right out through the spare tire wells on the front fenders.
    $180. bucks later, and some slicing and dicing and we got headers, Houston.

    Time to play with some paint (bored). Figured I'd try and match the orange on the Kroil can, so took some Kubota Orange and tinted it with red oxide primer. (?) DSCN3361.JPG

    Took a break from my stuff to make floorboards for "blindowl"s T-roadster that we were taking to The Race of Gentlemen. We drove down following Pete and his brother with Pete's '32 5 window. Had a blast- lots of pictures on here and U-Tube. Both cars did well. DSCN3340.JPG

    Mike, looking like you have come along ways since our last visit. When I get home I am going to try to get my 37 pick up done so I can take it to the HAMB drags in August. Keep on keeping on.

    Tried some more "custom" paint. I think everything being orange will be overload, so toned it back to doors and grill shell. Still on the fence.............maybe some orange hi-lites here and there? And of course some lettering and striping by my friend Ted Kiley. DSCN3378.JPG DSCN3382.JPG

    Ronnie "Wheeldog57" came over Sunday and helped button up the last of the drivetrain and hang the starter. Got some odds and ends to organize and I can start wiring ( VERY BASIC - ON/OFF ) and mount the fuel cell and battery. I got my windshield glass cut and put it in last week ; Thanks, Dave at "Ocean Glass" in Hampton, NH!
    Trying to hang the headlights so they're not too high up- made some tabs and put them on upside-down?? I don't know what the bar came off of, it's pretty beefy ( maybe a PU). The Dumbo ear fenders definitely need the support!! DSCN3401.JPG
