        That is going to be one bantam weight bruiser. Do you have to open up the rear fender wells or does ride height take car of that issue?
        I'll radius them. More weight reduction

          Another thing about the VFN front end, it's not really designed to be a tilt, it's designed to have a hood pinned to the top of it. Definitely a modern design.

          But if I could find a nice old used tilt glass front end, I'd use it

            no.... a nice guy would pay for it... but I'm not a nice guy, I'd say sorry about that but actually I'm kind of getting a kick out of saying that ;)

              If you're not buying, then I guess I'm going to use the steel parts I already have. I started playing with header ideas. I figured out how to mock them up to see how they'd look (imagination required).

                Tilt front ends were made for semi's not cars IMO , also they never look correct
                Really? Turner's 55 with a tiltlooks sweet.. You would never know it was a tilt front.. Except for the side pins.. Slides forward then tilts.. But it does hav some weight in th slide/tilt mechanism

                  What is that? Tubeing?

                    I can imagine the collector pointing at the ground at an angle, a cap, and a 2.5" exhaust coming off the side of the collector, down the rockers, and dumping before the rear wheels. Why 2.5? Because it's gonna be loud enough with the panels resonating and no carpet / very little heat and sound deadening. Why down the sides? So when you uncap it, you can drop the 40 pounds of mufflers more easily.

                      yes, it's 2 1/8" header tubing... can't you see it? lol. Maybe welding rod.

                        It looks like regular Hooker BBC Chevy II fender well headers (2280) would work.

                          My exaust (other than headers) is stainless and lite as a feather. No reason to pull them off, just uncap it. If you watch "racingjunk.com" you can buy a set of coated headers for a Chev II. I've bought a few myself for chev II's.
                          Go ahead, pull my finger.

                            The Hookers are about $500 past the budget limit. Beagle has the right idea for the exhaust system, although I'm really hoping to get some tail pipes on it too. The mock up uses 1/4" solid aluminum rod to model the header tubes. There's a $145 header weld up kit at Speedway that I might get....I also have some old unused Hooker headers for the 61 belair that I could cut up and build to fit this car, they're chassis headers, with one tube that goes outside over the frame rail.

                              Jim, you don't happen to have a Nova parts car, do you?
                              It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.

                                Nope....unless you count the one I'm building, which appears to have been used as a parts car!
