    Great looking ride you're putting together,excellent color choice.The hood ornament you ask me about will fit but different than yours if you are going for original.I did post more pictures on the post,check it out and let me know.Where are you located?Sent you a message.

    Original is always original, but custom never die.This car is mild custom, i like that. Cars located in Finland.

    Totally agree with updating the steering and brakes. Heidts make some good stuff. I looked at them before deciding to get my M2 custom made to my ride weight, height & geometry. More expensive option but should give good results.
    Increase the power then you need to increase the safety.
    A custom is about being laid back and enjoying the ride nice and easy like. Your bird in the middle of the benchseat.

    Dont get me wrong i have old manual steering in my 52 and its a fun drive. But you need to be on point so much more and if you are driving all day or through bad weather it can be tiring.

    Love the color. Good looking project. Keep at it.

    Wicked.

    What will your air out, ride & extended height be?
    Bags front and back?
    Those are not bag over shock like shockwaves. What are you running for the rest of the suspension?

    Nice work bro. Keep posting.
