    Hello! Not sure if anyone could, but been wondering how 55 Lincoln taillights would look on a 55 Ford for a Mild Kustom look! If it’s possible, thank you!

  3. It would look something like this....

    Don't really have a way of uploading other picks of her right now , but because of the way I built the grill surround on my 51 { another upper 51 flipped upside down and hand built curve corners} I have never been happy with the way the factory bumper lines up with it. A side from peaking the original wit parts from another 51 that I have. I was thinking maybe 56 Chevy or 54 Ford . Even if I have to cut and shape to get exactly what I want. Can anyone use this pic of my avatar and give me an idea. Thanks Larry

    Thanks Moose. I got a Chevy in the parts stash, Have to pull it out and see what tweaking needs to be done for width and profile. I like it. something a
    bit different and kind of mimics the rear bumper shape. Larry

    How about a Bailon style tube bumper? I matched it a up with a tube grille, but you could use anything. Here's
    Bailon's Sonny Morris Merc to compare.

    let's revisit this one and make it my own.

    2 (1).jpg

    first, let's take buzz out of the picture. i have 40 ford style 16" wheels, 4" wide in the front and 5-1/2" wide out back. maybe make them copper in color and shod them with 7.50-16 in the rear and 6.00-16's up front firestone bias ply deluxe champions. blackwall please.
    my T body still has the original patina'd dark green paint. make the roof all black. i'm not sure about the white band at the cowl/firewall. was thinking on making a vertical finned aluminum firewall for the mostly visible top half. the deuce grill can stay.
    so can the chrome side exhaust. maybe do a better representation of a cast Yblock rams horn exhaust manifold. the valve covers i have are polished vertical finned. that should do it for starters. i picked buzz's car for the amount of chop and it's stance.
    one last thing, i'm free to your guy's interpretation if you have better ideas. just don't go cutting the roof off this one madfish:)

    Thinking of getting much taller tires for the rear and a little taller in front. And I don't have a current profile pic of my car as it is in my avatar if you can make it red so I get a better idea of the taller tires. Appreciated.

    copper wheels aren't working for me. maybe another color but don't ask me what. i have a degree of color blindness that negates me me from making correct decisions. i'll probably end up rattle canning them a satin black and not run any caps.
    so maybe a version with satin black wheels with chrome lug nuts.
    i know, i'm taking this farther away from the show rod and leaning heavier on the hot rod.

    moose and the rest of you guys rock, i, for one really appreciate all you do on this thread.

    Putting a different grille on the front of my roadster meant making a new hood and side panels. Since I can’t match the old purple color I’m thinking of making it all 0621265E-DAE2-425C-B47C-5658C308DDB1.jpeg 34F78D38-9344-4B79-A53A-DD1E39B9B3DB.jpeg black this time. I’m also wondering how the car would look with painted grille bars, either black like the rest of the car, or yellow like the wheels, or another color. Thank you in advance for any efforts to adjust my colors. HFH.

  27. Thanks Moose. If you don't mind could you reverse the red & black. Sorry and don't mean to be a pain but want to check out all options before paint. Thanks again for all you do !!
