Haha. Just keep doing what you're doing. Obviously no one here needs to tell you which direction to take your vision. Pretty obvious you know what's up and it's working out.

Also one more vote for not filled in totally. Could look ok on more of a street rod looking vrod but yours is more traditional hotrod looking and in my opinion looks great being a bit more industrial and less polished.

Can't continue with hood latch until hood weatherstrip seal channel is rebuilt on passenger side. What a load of nasty cold weather work. Getting up to 20 degrees in the shop.
