Which means the headlight bar would need some adjustments now that there are no front fenders. A bent donor was found.

A spreader bar would be needed. A Model AA dump truck gave up its bent front axle. Cut to width and some fabricated end brackets were made to mimic the I beam construction. Some lightning holes and a recess for a brass tag.

The frame needed a little something. Splash aprons, but not Model A ones to big. So it was decided to make some fake 32 frame rails.

Now for something to sit on. A pair of MGB GT seats should work. Not quite small enough. lowered 1 3/4" and shortened 3 1/2" and a 2" lower profile.
