That is one fine looking street rod.  Except for the modern color it looks like it could have rolled out of the early 60's, great job.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Very nicely done, Dennis! Thanks for posting your construction "list". It's easy to overlook things on a buiild that is so "stripped down" in appearance. You obviously made more work for yourself than would appear at first glance. It all works well together with such "simplicity". Impressive!

Very nice build. Good blend of old time with just a few modern clues.
