I'm very excited to see what you build for a Model A gasser Those rear tires need to be larger though
That is alittle bit of a grey area. I dont think you could built a safe and reliable car with out some donations/ inheritance. That body would have blown 90% of our budget. I am putting a value of $500 that we paid for the axles onto our build since they were originally bought for this car. The motor I am pulling out of my car to use for it I will put a quote-unquote Craigslist value on it. What it would cost to buy one of similar nature on the internet. I will not be putting it value on this body since it was an inheritance piece to me.

As for the rear tires yes they will be bigger

Gotcha. That seems fair. Yeah, a nice safe car for $4K won't be done without some donations or getting lucky on deals. I got lucky on a bunch of stuff when I built my 46, otherwise it could have been a lot more pricey.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Yeah I agree with you 100% on donations are needed to build a safe reliable car for that price. And I'm not knocking anyone's projects but I have seen a lot of crap that I would not write in let alone want on the road. That model T I'm working on right now is one of them and that car was inspected by our state's. And given a title and permission to drive on the road. Absolutely insane to me. The car is really taller I think there's two little spots of rust on it around the back wheel arches. My dad wanted to strip the primer off the trunk to try and reveal the red color under it, but I can tell you right now that my grandpa strip that truck down to bare metal before applying a generous layer of Bonneville around the the trunk handle and then primary games. And since we are not allowed to add paint to it in any way shape or form we will be leaving it. My dad made the comment the other day that unless it looks good and he really likes it after the challenge he will be paying it metallic Orange. I want to throw up in my mouth

When I went to Rat City Rukkus in Vegas, there was a lot of stuff there that I wouldn't drive across the street.

I don't think it looks bad with the grey on the trunk, it adds some interest to it. Are you able to scrub it with CLR and a scotch brite or wetsand it before you clear it? I'm not convinced it would look good in metallic orange but it's not my car. It's cool that it had 41-48 Chevy taillights installed already.

I agree, but it will be staying that way. My dad said I can not touch it with the skinny wheel
