The cost of lighting, however, should not be a consideration. You should have
ample illumination in your shop for safety. If you can't clearly see what you're
doing, you'll be the proverbial "accident waiting to happen." There are more than
enough opportunities to skin knuckles, bang elbows and thump your head while
building your street rod. Good lighting is also a necessity for improved work
efficiency. Errors are easy enough to make without inviting the gremlins to take

One of the difficulties of building suspension pieces for street rodders that isn't a
factor for Detroit engineers is the overall look. Most production cars on the road

frontend alignment are considered ugly and bulky for street rod use. The method

T-bucket manufacturers were the first companies to see that enthusiasts were
willing to buy a hot rod that had a fiberglass body and custom-made chassis, so
when certain rare cars—such as the '32 Ford roadster—became very difficult to
find, they reasoned that a fiberglass replica might be a marketable replacement.
Before then, fiberglass companies were making Model T–based bodies and
sheetmetal replacement parts (such as fiberglass fenders and grille shells). As it
turned out, ...

On the other hand, a street-and-strip special may call for welding them into the
tubes, near the header flange. Smog nozzle kits are available to make this step a
little easier. Part of the planning is to decide ... If there is room for it, the simplest
way to build a custom header is to use one of the prefab kits, such as the Cyclone

Chevy and 2, 2'/s and 2'A sizes for the big-block Chevy. Of course these two kits

parts in the engine and can't be chosen without considering how these other
parts affect the piston. First, let's discuss the piston's elements. Special Note: The
required bore-size of the rings may be the hardest to find. Custom pistons are
much easier to find or have made than custom rings. For example, a race ring set
