A few people would not agree with skirts but to me it's out of the park for beauty with those. I can certainly relate to the amount of hrs. invested in a project like that. Wonderful job.

My 34 3w looked just like that when I bought it 14 yrs ago, it still looks great but has a few stone chips on top and under neath,we use it,but not as often as the 33,
but it is very nice to drive and looks just like new,it has aged better than our modern car ,the headlining for that fell out just sitting in the shed.
You have done a great job,
Love the spats ,

YES - YES, a beautiful 1934 Ford. A credit to your workmanship. They are all beautiful, 33s & 34s . The skirts are nice but they don't really need them to look good. In Australia we call the "skirts", "spats". Not sure why but probably a take off of spats which covered shoes. Regards, Kevin.

That's a stunner.

I see that you've used a luggage rack at the rear. Could you or someone please post pics on how and where you attach it on the car? I have short bumper braces so would those interfere in assembling a luggage rack?

Thanks for not chopping it and making another hotrod out of it. Very nice.

Fiver, I will create a post with photos of the luggage rack install. Deuce - yes, I would never personally butcher one of these cars. Not too many left with metal this good. I understand everyone likes what they like, but stock is for me.
