    Loving it and especially the cowl / tank top fab. I've got a 29 coupe and I'm thinking of a tilt grille shell / sides / hood all in one piece - like a gasser hood. It would be great for maintenance. Ever consider that? Gary

    I like it! I like the shape & proportion of the bed in comparison to the cab. I think the right choice of trim lines ( when you get that far) will really make it pop. What is the measurement from the firewall to the grille? I'm trying to get an idea of what the wheelbase is going to be? I'm guessing somewhere around 95 to 98" ? Do you have any concept drawings, or are you just winging it? Either way it looks great, & I'd like to see more. Thanks.

    Absolutely! But no cheater slicks for me this time way too slippery in the rain.
    I love the excelsior's butt they're a bit pricey.
    any ideas on wheels and tires is much appreciated.

    Very ambitious. I'll be watching. Being your business medium is aluminum, that probably keeps the price of material down to a certain extent?
