Re: 1936 PU original colors, purple and yellow?

V8COOPMAN,

Re: '32 woodie - holes in cowl

The big holes where your arrows were for an aftermarket antenna, as stated above. Sheldon is correct as to the purpose of the two small holes just behind the lip at the front of the cowl.

Re: Drake 40 dlx headlamp rims (bezels)

It seems like the prototype part of the development process gets left out. Without a trial run and prove out that the part fits and functions as intended, it's a shot in the dark and a leap of faith...

You beat me to it.

Not likely a Ford fender as they used three attachment points where the fender meets the running board. That casting with the hole in it attached to fender is also uncharacteristic of a Ford fender.
