The kit bench seat certainly won't work. Here's a bomber seat that I cast.

Those are cool Jim.
I'm actually thinking of building one, maybe two from scratch, and carrying over the flame theme in them.
But your seats do look vey cool If I do another oldie, I'll have to give you a shout.

Here are some mock up pics with the suspension actually under the truck for a more realistic example of the ride height.
Painted the wheels today also.

Thanks Pat.
They were kind of an after thought.
But alot of the ideas I've incorporated into this build have come along as it progressed.
Just kind of wingin' it since I really don't know much about building these old rods, so there hasn't been a whole lot of planning involved.
But......I do have a couple more tricks up my sleeve for this one. B)

For some reason I cant get the toolbar to come up for my post options. I don't know whether it's gonna let me post these pics or not. Guess we're about to find out.
All right Bill, the time has come buddy!
Got my Webers installed, and detail painted today. Also made the air trumpets and got them installed, and the moon tank installed to the radiator housing.

Here is the set of headers I made for it tonight.
This was a tricky set to make.
