1940 Ford

Recommended Posts

Got this puppy done today.  I used Tru-Color metallic dark titanium.  Interior buckets & console; frenched taillights and license plate.  Used a set of Steve Zimmerman wheels.

Great looking build. I like the paint, super smooth. I like that you kept the Flat Head engine.

Thank you David, Chris, Marty, and Christopher.  I came so close to putting in a SB Chevy.

What kind of a treatment did you give those heads? It almost looks like mirror tiles...or are my eyes playing tricks on me?

Thanks Lee, Greg, and Ray.

Didn't do anything to the head except drill for plug wires.

Great paintjob. 

Knowing the kit, I know how hard it was to fit those wheels. 

I see you have a hood fitting problem, and the fix is easy. The hinges are your problem. They have a step, that has to fit inside the firewall, so the rear of the hood goes down all the way.

Looking excellent. 

I have a build planned that will turn out similar to that. Will keep this one in mind for reference.
