      these are some pics of my latest project i saw a 1:1 Big Deuce Low Boy Build car that was built by voo doo larry and thought i have to build this thing as a roadster dont mind the different colors i was just doing some test sprays to figure out the exact color i wanted the frame is crazy modified i cut the frame horns off and glued them together to make the perch and lowered the rear a whole bunch so it sets real low with out the frame sticking up half way through the fire wall and i made all of the new cross members and slotted engine mounts i used a piece of an old broken frame rail to mount the steering box the grill is scratch built Big Deuce Low Boy Build and so will be the door panels all to match with slots and rivets i was debating on mounting a radiator in the back but i cant find any pics on how it is done on a 32 frame i just cant figure out how to make it look good because i will have the frame showing in the trunk and if anybody has any pics that would be great so let me know what you guys think

    here are some new pics of the build i got the slotted i beam headlight brackets done with the e&j headlights and i also drilled the axle but i still wanted it even lower so i cut the first spring perch off and mounted the spring below the frame i just notched out the frame to fit and since the spring is moved from the top of the axle i mounted the spring to the wish bones so it is really low and i also have the louvered back panel it took me about 3 hours of cutting the pieces to get hem to look right they are hard to see how well they do actually blend with just primer Big Deuce Low Boy Build im painting the panel with alclad Big Deuce Low Boy Build polished aluminum and then ill do a slight wash around the louvers to really give them a good look
