    Hey Steve, can I use your BMW name thingy as that is so true. I only need to drive past a garage and I hear the cash registers ringing.
    I think your choice of bumpers will look exceptional too.

    I kind of wish I didn't read your last post because I googled Briz bumpers and looked at their site. They have pics on there of 39s and 40 Fords with them and I think I may have a change in heart about removing my bumpers. I called to get a price on them.

    Yeah, these are really a great deal. At $225 a piece I couldn't even find good used stock ones for that. Re chromed ones were $600 a piece!

    I was surprised when I spoke to the lady yesterday when she told me that price. Now I have to decide if I want bumpers or not. They will be so low that the only real protection in the front will be to curbs but the rear might slow down a newer low car. I really like the look of a 40 ford with no bumpers. But I like these ribbed bumpers too. It gives the car a real vintage look IMO.

    Finished up polishing and putting on the last of the stainless today. That is one hideous job I'm glad to have finished. If I ever build another car of this era, I'm welding up all the trim holes.

    Yeah, I hear you there but look at that beauty, she would look naked without her stainless trim. I do like a well dressed young lady and yours will look the part with her new ribbed bumpers.

    Good choice on the wheels, it is a good look for that car. And a nice job with all that trim.

    What he said.
    The trim 'breaks' it beautifully.
    I appreciate it's a big job; but I think the effort was worth it.

    Thanks! That Harbor Freight polishing wheel sure came in handy; never would have survived tryin to polish all that trim by hand.

    I think the trim sets it apart from just a plain white car. That looks awesome! Do you plan on trying to do any of the Power Tour this year?

    Very nice job.........car looks great. So glad you stuck with the "correct" size wheels and not follow everyone else with the huge ones. I like the trim pieces but do agree that they are a pain , but look at the finish product.

    I agree, I'm not a monster wheel fan, either. I'm too nostalgic, I guess. I'd love to do the Power Tour, really hoping to make it this year.

    Looks great. Well worth the time you spent doing it. I will at some point do the same!
    What polishing compound did you use?

    That car is turning out beautiful, my neighbor has a 47 in his shed right now , looking at yours makes me see that one with different eyes. Love the rims on it, I just showed my wife cuz those are the ones I was looking at for the 53, great minds must think alike.
