luckily he has a 32 ford as I believe that front fenders , + rear , and running boards are made STEEL reproduction.

Tuner guy is going to get a hell of a bill just for parts.

 Sixball  You don't seem like a guy that gets in trouble that much.   ;)

madmike3435..All that was damaged is reproduction to begin with, so you are right. Makes it a little easier, Although I know the Brookville front fenders need work to match. Ron

A buddy of mine replaced his front brake pads and got in a hurry. He didn't pump the brake to test them, went to back out of the garage instead of putting the car in reverse he put it in drive car went forward he stepped on the brakes had none and ran into his work bench and damaged his right front fender >:( yes he was angry with himself for getting in a hurry

In the end, your friend will have a nice car, and a good story to tell.

A friend of mine drove his hot Rodder 38 Ford truck across the country a couple of hundred miles to a hot rod event.
As He was slowly turning into the fairgrounds, his front axle snapped.
Not a lot of damage, but it caused world wide repercussions in the aftermarket hot rod world.
