Everything on this car is right. There's not a single spot on it that needs to be tweaked, changed or reworked. It's an all around perfect hot rod. Well done, my friend!
Thanks Motorhead ! Well, nothing is ever that perfect - I'm making a new carb scoop that better matches the body lines and has a little grille to match the front one, plus some other tweaks.... you know hot rods, they're never done.

I didn't see anything wrong with the other scoop - but the new one looks like it might flow a little better with the body lines.

Beautiful ride!

Got the air cleaner finished today and painted, also finished the stainless grille for it, I think it flows a bit better with the body lines, the other one tilted back too much.
Tomorrow it's off to the upholstery shop, that is one thing I don't do myself - can't sew and don't wanna learn....

Thanks fellas, when I get it back in a couple days, I'll get some outside shots for a better perspective, plus a look at the new completed interior.

The red stripe really sets it off. Is there going to be a hood/grill ornament?

I'm trying to resist the urge to add more doodads, it's easy to go too far and clutter it up.
