    Just ride it down a big hill when you're done. That should be good enough.

    I can decide if I should paint the wheels or not.

    Looks good. Like a lead sled. I bet it goes down hill as fast as a clunker.

    Thanks, it's going in the direction of a hot rod more than a 50's custom. I have an old girls JC Higgins with skirt guards that I think I will make look like a 50's custom. Giving it that led sled look with fender skirts.

    If we would get a day where it's at least 50 out I could get the flames painted on this thing but it's only in the 30's now. I'm going to spray silver & then transparent blue over that.
