Hi,

Thanks for the replies!

The grille is the MCG item - I find if you buff them with a 6000 grit sanding stick they come out really nice. Haven't used a kit grille on a '32 for a long time.

Cheers,

Very nicely done and a great color combo. Is it RMCoM body?

Hi,

Thanks for the replies guys!

Michael - it is a RCMoM body, the interior from the 5 window kit fits in perfectly. I'm working through a series of '32s and RCOM has a couple more I will get (the sport coupe and the sedan delivery).

Cheers,

Jim

I hear you Jim. I have over a dozen Deuces on the bench right now. I have to pick one of RMCoM sedan deliveries too. My problem with all of them is that always want to make them either black or some sort of red. LOL.

Hi,

A dozen deuces Mike? That's quite a few!

With my collection I'm trying to make them all slightly different in some way (e.g. engines, build style, types of paintwork, etc.). On the engine front I've failed a bit as 3 now have the small block Ford in. Got some excuse though as one was a box stock build for a contest and the other a Speedwagon. Although there's 3 small block Fords they all have different induction so I guess that's something!

Cheers,

Very nice build. That's the first one I've seen built, other than my own.
