    Whats the wheel and tire combo gonna be? Please beg Junior not to run the Cragar wires off his 34...then again they might be perfect with the denim theme.

    Great looking 5 window and I concur, excellent color choice. Is this an old Ford color? Kewanee green maybe?

    Charlie take some credit you did a great job on the chassis and setting this up. It made our jobs easy.

    As long as the chrome is finished by next week we should be on schedule to drop this off for upholstery the beginning of Febuary. That gives Mike about two more weeks than he usually gets.:D

    Its funny your joking about this, Mike just did some denim interior on a pair of seats. I'm not sure but I think Bill is a Wrangler kind of guy.

    Sidmarks...ask and you shal recieve :)

    I hate fitting stuff once the car is painted but with the deadline and we just got the hood last week....the only option we have.

    Not fitting too bad. Concidering I had to beat on the firewall lip with a rubber mallet to get the cowl lacing high enough.

    Gotta come up with something cool for the rear hood latches.

    And NO the grill shell is not staying black. i hate when the grill shell doesn't match the car.

    Spike.... I got a tripod for my phone.

    Skid....paint! Also got the steering shim machined to fit right. I have yet to work on one that didn't need machined.

    Not sure how many updates we'll do after the hood is painted.....gotta leave a little suprise for detroit.

    Yeah...Jr took care of it and had clearance for the pitman arm. I think they took a 1/4 inch off of one end and none on the other.

    Redz....yeah I remember those and will make a set of them for something. I actually stole your idea for this one. I started on another set of mounts and they were just too big and bulky. I remembered how simple and easy yours were and ran with it.
