Great shoebox man!! The wheels are the perfect choice, and great work on the grill.

Thanks guys! Working on the interior and chassis tonight. Small setback which I knew I would hit, but one of these days I'll learn. If you look at the top of the back seat, you'll see I put down an undercoat of black. Should have done this originally behind all the other peridot color, but tried the peridot first. Still learning 25 years later. This undercoat makes the peridot more gold, than green like the rest.

Good job on hand painting those whitewalls. I'm going to have to do the same for my '32.

Thanks Roland and Dan.

Here's a couple more shots of where she stands at the moment. I like the semi-gloss shine of it now, not sure if I want to make her glossy or not.

Latest update. Had to strip it and respray due to BMF pulling up the paint. Need to get a good few coats of Future on to prevent that next time. This time its a little more rough than I wanted, but hopefully the Future will smooth it out. Also need to find some Alclad for the chrome.

Great assembly, like much of this ford, I have two waiting for the time to go to bench.

I really enjoyed the time when you left the car, very well.

The wheels are very beautiful, congratulations for done.

Just think the capo of the engine does not enceixou right, it seems that left space in front.

Hugs.
