    Great story evolving here. Attention to details are very evident. Thanks for sharing your personal journey. Sport Coupes are a great base for a Hotrod.

    Beautiful work. The Rivets look great! Where are the self adjusting parts for the brakes?

    That my friend is for you to figure out. It was necessary to fit the 32 gas tank.

    The faux finish on the lid and lower panel are a dead on match with the rest of the car, nicely done, that was part of the confusion. :confused: Bob

  13. Those p/u trunk kits were sold by Sears & Roebuck in the day. Made a coupe more useful out on the farm.
    Anxious to see what you're going to do with the top.

    A couple of update pictures . I decided to use Model A tie rod ends with Haze City bungs. They look great and I’m really happy with the look!

    Like the leather dust covers, are they something you made special? Redneck steering arm, not too much. :confused:Bob
