Composite leaf springs....

I am posting for my father-in-law.......Does anybody have composite leaf springs under their '42-'48 FORD and if so, what do you think about them? He is looking at putting some under his '46 Coupe. Thanks in advance!

Pro's and Con's please...

Pro's they have a longer life then steel. Con's they can get nicked by stones and damaged. I have seen guys wrap them in duct tape.
