here is some up to date pictures on my 54 windsor with 86 ltd driveline

i boxed off the front frame and welded on some rectangle tubing making the bumper bracket and frnder mounts i also made hinges to make the hood open backwards also used some round stock for the grill suport

i did learn when making the hinges, to make it work without the hood being flimsy you have to connect the right hinge to the left hinge, as soom as i did that the hood was very strong and able to be opened without scraching the fenders

Have you got it running? You have done a TON of work since the photos of it on the trailer. Do you have anymore body swaps planned?..........john

ya it runs ,, you floor it and and it spins the tires
ya i have put hundreds of hours in the car since i got it not a ton of money though i think it will be a cool cruser


DAM last night i mounted the radiator got all the mounts made and welded them up and my stupid self didnt measure 2 times and now the bar that connects the hood hinges tougher hits the a/c condensor mount ,, looks like next time i work on the car i will be cutting off everything i just did


does anyone know how thick the metal conecting the hood hinges has to be to keep the hood sturdy?
