Default 35 3 Window Finally Done!

Well it only took 3 years but my 3 window is finally done .... just in time to tuck it away for a winter sleep - will break it out of the cocoon in the spring and plan to be at the 2014 Eastern Nationals in June .. it is very close to stock as you can see save for the slightly lower stance, a very big flathead Ford under the hood and Lincoln brakes to stop it ... wont be permitted on the show field for sure but perhaps they will let me in the parking lot!

You built my kind of car...love it.....forget show fields and just drive it.
