Just a thought, but the kit wheels/tires are really nice if a bit dated. Have you looked them? I'm building the same kit, but I've hacked it up a bit.

It's clean, real clean so far. I think with the smaller wheel in the front will make all the difference in the world. I like the color combo and the way you ran the line to seperated the two. Can't wait to see it come together, keep it up.

Nice paint!

I think those wheels are perfect for this but agree they would be better if they were bigs "n" littles..

Looks nice. I think if you raise up the rear a tad it will make the wheels look better (IMO). Love the paint on this.

Those wheels are perfect for it, will make a whole world of difference with the big-n-little stance. Not at all dated, some things are too classic to mess with. Those wheels are pretty much an updated polished Radir or American mag wheel. Which is what's on a whole lot of Hot Rods now days.

I take it that you are (based on paint style and wheels) building current (billet) style versus period correct pre '64 style. If you'r e building current stick with those wheels. Some of the true billet wheels detract rather than enhance the lines of a whole lot of Hot Rods. A wheel should compliment the lines of the car not the car compliment the wheels.

Isn't this a '37 Ford even though your post says it's a '36? I'm just surprised no one has pointed that out. No big deal. I love the color combo.

..Yeah now I look stupid since you fixed it! :lol: I just couldn't let that go by having owned two 1:1 '37 Fords. I have seen the '37 fenders used on a '36 before but, something just didn't look right. It's going to make a great looking hot rod!

Love the color combo! I wonder what it would look like if you painted the wheel spokes to match the silver, or even maybe even a darker shade, while leaving the chrome lip...
