    Nice addition. Cowl vent , radiator cap, Attention to detail like this makes the difference between something I walk by at a show and one I spend time admiring and a few frames shooting.

    You may have said but I missed it if you did, do you have a color picked out?

    use light pressure on the hood hold-downs as too much will warp the hood sides at

    the top louvers to the rolls for the side hinge rods. happened to me!

    End of the long weekend and just finished putting steering box and spare tires mount holes in my frame. I would like to thank my friend Dave for letting me get the locations off of his original frame. I also got the top tabs located and ready to weld on frame work. I would recommend anyone buying a new glass body to have that done before you buy it. [​IMG][​IMG]
