    I didn't like the clamp supplied with the steering stabelizer so I made my own.

    Finally! I'm happy with stance, and panel fit. The fenders look good from
    a distance, but need a bunch of fine tuning. I'll show that in later posts.

    Wow, nailed it perfectly for stance and ride height. Love the way the wheel / tyres fit and fill the guards / fenders . Absolutely looking like a very desirable car and love the hemi in it. A friend of mine who is going through a messy divorce has stored his original Moon rocker covers, twin 4 barrel manifold with twin Carters which are for his hemi powered '32 Roadster plus a NOS set of fender skirts for his '37 Ford Coupe in my garage at the moment. The shame of it is my T has a SBC so I can't make use of them. He is pulling the triple carb manifold off the flatty in the '37 also before everything is valued to get the valvues down.
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.

    Thanks for the encouragement guys! Those 'Moon' valve covers sound
    awesome, I've got a repo set of chrome covers I'm going to use.

    Made a hammer form for the trans cover.

    Heres the tools I used to beat the snot out of it. The cheap muffler gun has a
    quick release collar,and a 'planishing head' available on e-bay. It helps make a tight
    definition around the edges.

    After initial planishing it's close, still needs a little work.

    I always new I was going to cut the piece off here, but the hammer form had to
    shaped to get the proper form in this area.

    Tacked some braces on so I could work on the bench.

    Had to use 3 pieces to fill that area in, but happy with it.
