I just did a quick and dirty mock up with the new fenders and it looks great. Now I am thinking a different color on the fenders like gloss black. Painting the fenders red oxide, tank and the frame sides maybe too much…red oxide?? Gotta think about that.
I am using a model B head light bar sans the V8 insignia for a cleaner look. I am digging the stock height head light bar. I think we have seen dropped bars on street rods since the eighties to the point we think that is the way it should be. Well, not so fast. This is the way Henry did it and that is good enough for me. This is also bringing the “old” back to the car if that makes sense.
I can’t be Milner for ever.
Just to see the these front fenders and head light bar mocked up like this is VERY motivating. The car has a nice stance and rake now and I can only imagine how it is going to look with everything installed.
I did have a bit of an epiphany thought…I decided to order a full fender kit from Brookville. I can do a lot but I am not a body man. The original fenders are very nice but the certainly needs some massaging.
Can’t wait to get this fitted…stay tuned.
