    I love them, alot of craftsmanship I can tell. Sometimes its hard to be different, but I think its worth it. They look perfect for the style of your hot rod. Great job!

    No thank you. As HOTRODDON SAID. Exercise in futility.

    I like bumpers. Without them, my neighbors would do hundreds, to thousands of dollars of damage to my car, daily.

    I like them, they have a lot of class especially the front one. The art deco style would suit a slightly newer car better (34 - 38).

    Call 'em nerf bars, you'll get a lot more love. I kinda agree with Don, in that I think they are a little busy, simpler could be better, but then I dont know what kind of MV regs you are dealing with either.

    I like the rear better than the front, FWIW.

  18. Isn't that cute - resorting to name calling.

    He asked for opinions and people are giving them. No one said you had to agree with them.

    I agree. And it is hard to be different. ;) But different is good!

    Heck it is your car, you really only have to please yourself. What do you think of them?
     
  27. Dig them. I like the back better too because you carried the three bars all the way across. Certainly distinguishes your ride from others. Roll with 'em and let the bugs gets a close up look out front. Nice tudor.

    Kind of have that "done by the wrought iron fence guy thing going with them as they do look a but busy and especially on an otherwise really clean car.

    As long as they serve their purpose and maybe defend the car from a Prius they are good though. I think I would have quit with the large tube or had a matching large tube about an inch above that one and left the small frufru off.
