      My truck is pushed back in the que of projects for myself. I moved the beach racer up to spot #1. I couldn't find all the parts in my swap meet 36 Ford, so today I got a partial 37 Ford coupe from Ebay. It's got soke kind of crappy paint on it and looks like all the main body parts are int he kit. Maybe it will be here this week.

            It looks great Robert, I see you have a hard time painted the nice aluminum CB Design wheels too.
