    You're very welcome, Jim. Just glad that I could be of real help and save you some time. You've nailed the stance, and the "drop" on the tires. Looking forward to seeing those rear frame rails bobbed & tweaked, too!

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Looks fantastic Jim, the stance, tires and wheels, radius rod, everything is just perfect! Getting all the various pieces to compliment each other on build is sometimes the hardest part of a build, you REALLY nailed it! Very well done!

    What a great start! After following WRP's fiberglass build I have a new appreciation for them.

    Thank you everyone for the compliments. All the delays were making me wonder if I had started the wrong project. Now I'm re-excited.

    I picked up an aluminum intake and the pulleys I needed for it at the Turkey Run a couple of weeks ago. I already have a bunch of other stuff I bought for it. Friday I may go to my local salvage yard and look for some seats. Having the actual seats I'm going to use will help me position the steering column where it's comfortable. I have the electric power steering unit out of a Chevy Equinox, but it looks too big and ugly to use. Time will tell.

    I went "junkyard stompin'" on Friday and must have looked at the bucket seats in 500 different cars. I finally selected a set from a 2004 Nissan Maxima. They are black leather in perfect condition. I originally wanted seats like those in a Chevy Volt - adjustable 8 ways manually. These are power seats; the driver seat is adjustable 8 ways, the passenger 4 way.

    Three of the four "feet" on these seats are relatively flat. The fourth one extends downward about 2 inches. To make these fit the flat floor of the '32 I needed to modify that fourth foot. First I set the seats (one at a time) on my table with that odd foot hanging over the edge. Then I used a yardstick and a paint marker to scribe where the foot needed to be cut off. A quick excising with my angle grinder cut-off wheel and a little touch-up with my Roloc grinder and I'm ready to weld on a 1/2 inch washer. Now the seats sit flat and I can put them in the car for trial fit. (I will remove the headrests later).

    Nice seats,I also found out that it's good not to rule out the foreign cars for donor parts. It's funny that you mention a Chevy Volt, Is there a lot of them by you? I've never seen one.
