Default Finally some front fenders

Had some time today to get the front fenders on to see how they will fit up.

Fitting the inner fenders and trimming those out for the brake line while getting the inners to line up with the front fender after squaring fenders to the running boards and lining up with the cab supports has been the hardest part of this resurrection.

Thanks to the guys who have sent me some pictures so I could get these together. Scott

The 26 Fordor I picked up in November, no compression on cylinder one due to a stuck exhaust valve. The head is off as I await new valves after re-surfacing the valve seats. All new wiring with a little work and I hope to get this back on the road soon.

Original car from Pennsylvania, some more pictures when I got it. Gonna keep it the way is sits and getting it safe and mechanically sound. Scott

Nice, but I don't think it's a V8!

Looking great. See you have the hood on that's one mistake I made first go around was to put fenders and grill on tight before the hood. I guess it's part of getting to know your ford.

Nice looking T! '
