Keep watching. You never know what will pop up.
I liked for a long time for that 49 Plymouth front bumper. I finally bit the bullet and bought one from eBay. Mainly because the seller guaranteed it was a front. More money then I wanted to spend but I needs it to move forward. The eek it arrives I find a set on FB market place for half the price. They are in their way here now.😳
So soon I will have to rear 49 Plymouth bumpers to try to peddle. 🤪

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Please use the '28 shell. Please?

I'm one of those guys who's tired of '32 shells on anything but a '32. Sorry, Skip!

A while back I sprung for a windshield upper hinge, and stuck it in the pile of parts. Found a "lot" of Model A parts on eBay. Won the bid. Got a nice set of side garnish moldings for the windshield. The collection also included what appears to be a NOS set of the same for a 30/31. There were a few other things in the box, like a nice park brake handle, and some junk.

Today, I played a bit with an idea for a sun visor that has been bouncing around in my head. I think I kind of like the idea. Or I will like it better after I finish it. The back edge will lay back and flow over the top and the ends will have a round transition like the stock visor does. Its all about the louvers. Or more accurately just holes/slots/whatever.

There is a very good chance I will, just because it is more voluptuous than the 32. And, the 32 will be easier to resell.

I vote for both the Model A grille shell and the sunviser.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
