Lightbulb headers

are the headers going to kick back and run along the frame rails and have mufflers?-- square tubing? COOL

some cops here say ya have to have mufflers and some just don't care, depending on the cop ya run into driving around Washington in the hot rod decides this "modification"

Here in Nebraska their pretty cool about it if your not driving like an idiot.
The sq tube will go into a round tube forward towards the cab then turn up into stacks!

This type of build is what makes RRR such a great site !
Not just out of the box, this makes me want to do try harder to be more innovative. You're helping to keep the 'ol fun meter pegged.
Can't wait to see what's next.

My thoughts as well. Wonderful build. I just hope you don't paint it.

Thank you zzrodder since I was lurking for awhile before I even started my build all of you guys here were my inspiration, I have silently watched as this builds poured onto the pages of this site knowing that someday mine would grace these pages and hopefully not get lost.

Ok Earthman and Skull there will no paint, I was considering powder coating the frame and suspension but as it has progressed the humidity here in Nebraska is terrible in the summer and everything is starting to match the body and we decided early on we wouldn't do anything with the body. So no paint!

I said earlier in the build trying to get this body put together was a challenge due to it not having any structure left in it, so I just tried to go with the curves and body lines as best as I could and I think it turned out good, until I went to put the roof on!!


Yeah it is nowhere close to fitting and I have no idea how this body could ever fit that roof. So now what I don't want a flat roof and I don't have an English wheel!


I had talked about maybe making a removable hardtop like Bonehead is doing on the gunslinger truck so here is my compromise.







Putting some strength into the skin and creating some curve in the roof
