Very nice resto Bent, Polished hardware is the way to go, no color or anodized, I think an old car should be left in the original state. Very nice find.


how do you stop the steel from rusting if its not painted with the weather we have here in nz it will rust with in a month

its no big deal to take the paint off

do you think it should be left raw steel ??

a lot of the pics ive seen looks like the front axle is painted and the rest raw

i dont realy like the blue now that its together

looking real good there. You never know unless you try. The blue looked OK to me, but now it is better.

i think it loooks better now from what ive seen in pics thats how they are ment to be

Mike,
Just thinking......Does Jeff have any Pacesetter decals around. Love to get hold of some originals. I can get them reproduced by my signwriter, but it's not the same!
