That thing is great! Real nice patina to. Moving fast on this project, it will be on the road in no time at this rate! You should go on and cut the rear floor and flat pan it while your doing all this, will gain over a inch of clearance out back and keep the battery from falling out of a peeled open pan lol. Did you figure out the offset of your wheels? Man once the beam and spindles go on it completely changes the look of the car and in my case made me insane because I couldn't drive it right that minute HAHAHA!!! I wouldn't even wash it, just clean the glass and interior and run it cheers

The snowflakes look good on there. Those wheels ought to work out well too. So you gonna stick with the 36hp motor for now? I wish I could have gone to BAP, first 1 in 6 years I missed...there is always good stuff for sale at the show.

They're slow to load on my computer, Tim. More than likely it's because of the file size.

They load pretty slow (and the last one is upside down), but they appear to be working ok on my computer.

I can see that 1. I tried to copy and paste what I am seeing, and when I previewed it, there were the pics. All I see is print on the original.
