Hit the "quote" button on the right side of the screen right under the post you are referring to so we will know. I scrolled up a bit and can't find what you are talking about.

Too Many Projects As of right now, it looks favorable, but I'm sure you're aware of how quickly weather changes when South Dakota or Iowa cook up storms to send to us...

SounderMN As long as the weather is nice, yes I'll be there.

Will you be at BTTF on Friday ? I'd like to see the car and talk about the paint with you. I'm looking for something very similar for my '38.

SounderMN The hood supports were custom built by my friend who welds aluminum. They work well and allow the hood to open from either side, or be removed. And there are small feet to allow the hood to sit on a bench without the paint touching. I'll post a couple pics of how I did it. Works better than the SB standard setup.

Rodnit Looks killer! I too like the paint. I've seen them go for as much as $40k, so maybe you're still alright.....
The range seemed around $18k-$40K..... Depending on the build....

Did you custom make the aluminum grille/hood supports. They look real good.....

brickyardboy Nice ride! Love the copper/orange paint!

SounderMN I guess I was one of the lucky ones. I received everything I paid for. A lot of the "extras" I didn't use, such as lighting and gauges. But I got it all, including the interior. The interior doesn't look totally professional, but I didn't have to pay the $5 to $10k for a pro interior either. I am mostly happy with how it came out. A real professional leather interior would look better... but I like the cloth. Also, there is only so much that you can spend on a SB, or you never get your investment back. And, I'm already past that point, mostly because of the paint job.

SounderMN And a few more exterior shots for you.
06-09-2016 12:04 PM
SounderMN And, I did not do the interior "by the book" either. I don't like the look of the radio under the dash, so I used that spot for some of the gauges. I think it looks a little less cluttered this way. i created the custom overhead console for the radio instead. Sorry the pics are sideways... I don't know how to fix that.
