    Yes I am. I think it's the only feasible option to be able to still do body mods and repair but keep it drivable. If I get it that far this year. If I go with the steel wheels, I thought about having them powder coated chrome? Or a metallic blue as I'm thinking white silver and blue flames this time around.

    I currently have my 871 on ebay so I can recoop more money to buy other parts. My goal is to get my 72 drivable. I should be able to buy some parts soon for the 40 if I keep on my selling spree.

    Here's another. It has 17's & 18's but I think the tires are too small, especially on rear. I'm also not crazy about these wheels but I'm just throwing stuff out there for ya.....1940 Ford Tudor Sedan Gets Custom Treatment [Video]

    I love the maroon sedan. I doubt mine is that extreme though. Definitely an awesome ride. The black one is awesome too. I wonder what sizes the wheels are? I'm kinda thinking the tires are a bit small, but it still looks good. The black cherry one is super nice too. Those wheels do look nice on it for sure. Thanks for the links and help!

    If you have a really low car - i.e. channeled over the frame, exhaust routing gets interesting.

    Jack, as for now, I doubt mine gets as low as the maroon one. Maybe like the black one, but not slammed. I'd like it to be , but I'm trying to keep the floor and trunk room it currently has. I'm sure the maroon one has lost some real estate. Well, the blower is gone. I think I'm going to buy a Hot Heads Dual Plane Intake with the funds from that. I also ordered an Eastwood tubing bender so I can start on my X member some day. Haha

    Okay guys, I can use some input. I'm thinking of having some louvers put in my hood. I've never had any on any vehicle before. With that said, are they a pain due to allowing water on the engine after a wash, or a pita due to drawing too much heat? I'm guessing not, but I figured I'd ask. I can't decide how many and how far to go either. I'm thinking do over the engine area which would be roughly 2/3 of the hood. What are your guys's thoughts? Thanks Ryan.

    Well, if you want an honest response......I hate 'em!! Whatever benefit of heat escape they may offer is offset by what a PITA it would be to clean around them, water drips on the engine plus the disruption of the smooth flow of the '40 hood! But other than all that, I suppose they're great! Hahahaha! Obviously, it's your car and I'll follow & applaud your build but I'm just not a fan of louvers. There, I said it.....

    Thanks for the response Randy. This is one of theose mods that will be hard to undo, so I'm trying to decide if it's really what I want to do for sure. My first thought was of the water on the engine first thing. I guess it won't be hard to undo as I just have to buy another hood if I decide I don't like them. It's just a thought as of now. The car still needs a lot of other things to get it where you can call it a car again. Haha
