Default Now for mine !

Now that I got momma her truck somewhat road worthy, it's time to start on my Coupe. First pic is from when I picked it up last Aug. The others are as it sits now. Replaced the chrome wires with garbage rubber on them (both rights flat) with a fairly new set of stock steel wheels with almost new Michelins. I went the big little route, 235/75-15 in the rear & 205/75-14 up front.

Looks like you are almost done. I hope you have a project after this one already picked out.

Cool. Are you gonna run it without a hood? I like some cars done that way, like '40 Fords, etc. Your's would look great with no hood and some carbs peeking out of the top.
