      This is where my deuce build will be garaged. I figured I'd get my lift space early. Here's the final scoop on the build. I'm starting from zero with a fresh kit. It's going to be a coupe but I'll be covering the coupe top and will make it look like a Carson top. I'm putting in the 59 Caddy engine with two 4 barrel carbs and no blower. The wheels will be removable so I can put on wires, mags or steelies with scratchbuilt hubcaps. If I can solve my gas tank dilemma, I'll channel the body, put in a rumble seat My Hot Ford (Deuce) Coupe and a fully upholstered interior. Pics to follow. More options to be added.

    Thanks guys. I just came back from the hobby shop with the paint for the body. I'm using Black Gold Kandy teal over fine particle Stratto Blue Metallic My Hot Ford (Deuce) Coupe . The interior will be white leather with contrasting color accents. The tough parts are going to be the electronics.

    Jeff, if you decide to go with saddle tanks, connect the two tanks with a cross-over valve (manual or electric), run a line from the cross-over to an electric fuel pump (frame mount for a clean install), to a fuel block (firewall) then to the carbs. Stick an inline fuel filter in transit or one on each carb. Don't forget that gravity feed tanks are illegal, the fuel supply lines need to come from the top of the tanks. You could use a mechanical fuel pump but with two four barrels and a big thirsty engine, electric would be my choice.l:

    Thanks Don. That's the info I've been looking for. I'll do some google searching and put the whole mess together. I've made a major design change in my deuce. It's going to be sectioned a la your tutorial to make it sleeker and then it'll have a heavily modified coupe top. I won't give it up yet until I have the photoshopped pic completed. It'll map out my sectioning and help me set the right proportions.

    Here's my photoshopped proposed deuce build. It's not quite final because you can't see the headlights and I'm going to put in rear fender pieces. The color will be close but will also be a metallic My Hot Ford (Deuce) Coupe color. Other details cannot be seen.

    Wheeeeeee....now that's different, I'd really like to see an early Ford coupe split back-window in that puppy.l: l: l: Here's a couple of thoughts for ya.

    You know if I can find an easy way to do a thing I will....
    Question...are you going to move the rear wheel well reveal up? If so I have a trick for that to cut down on the amount of "body work" involved with great results but you need to do it brfore you replace the lower belt-line and cut the lower section of the body off.

    Yeah Rick, you tell him. Yes Don, the wheel well will definitely be moved up siince that's where the Milner style rear fender is going to sit. I did it this way because when I did it without the section, it just looked too dang weird. It will definitely have the split back window. I may put the 40 dash in or I may even shoehorn in a 46 I've been aching to do a 46 for a long time now and I think this is the time to run it by. Looks like Dan may have another master to mess with.

    Here's the first picture of the successfully sectioned deuce. I took about 4 scale inches out of the body. I havent put the lower bead back on yet and I'm not sure if I even want to put it back. It looks nice and clean this way.
