    The 3rd component besides wheels and stance is the front grill.
    This is why all auto manufacturers make a big deal about their front grills and most get it wrong..
    Especially a huge Japanese manufacturer ...their grills look like a big commercial air conditioning system.

    Tires and stance are a great starting point when building any car. 20170505_165804.jpg

    I always liked slightly lower and level best or even a slight gasser rake.. Chrome steel wheels no white wall..

    It's interesting how subjective some of this is. For instance, many pals think I need to drop my truck more. But I think "how the hell will I haul anything? It's already dropped 4 inches." I've decided to bring the front down another inch. [​IMG]

  28. I love the way the front tires are tucked up inside those beautifully curved '29 fenders.

    You really nailed it. :cool:

    I’m right there with you 15x6 on the front and 15x8.5 Ansen Top Eliminators made a whole different look on this car DCDFBB28-50D9-44EC-AA40-5FB45481BB05.jpeg 85B65E2B-F680-4DA5-9580-783A400E6B4A.jpeg

    Since I've reached a stopping point on the body and paint work, and because the last picture had some clutter issues;
    here's an updated picture and another from the rear quarter... sure is down in front!

    Regrettably, the shop is still a disaster!:rolleyes:
    I'm anxious to get it outside for a proper profile picture.
    Hopefully it won't be too long.;)
