This is the first time the hood latches were actually tested. The hood is tight and all works fine. You can see the two hood dobbers in use. They are strong, so fun to latch too.

I'm in the same boat on that paint job, I think it'd look better with something simple and understated so as not to take away from the amazing metalwork!

Last areas of rust being patched. Looks like a simple patch panel but it's curved in two directions. Hood rain gutter split open to relieve some stress. Getting chassis started for final items like footrest and pans, and sandblasting.

Killer! Bring on that paint design. I can see it working. Everything changes with color added.
Man those pans are awesome.

As the final welding and details are being addressed on the chassis, it's time for a final placement of the foot rest and brackets.
