Back surgery and new grandkids, aren't we a diverse crew. Congrats Tom and speedy recovery Munch!

Did an update to the '39 today, added an LSX decal.  Not sure if I like it or not...what do you think?

The rest of the car looks so classic.  Not sure if I like it either, but it's your car.  Beautiful car!

I agree with Tom.  The badge doesn't fit the rest of the car in my opinion.  You could maybe painted the black "background" of the badge to match the color of the car and it might blend a little better.  Here is a quick photo edit of what I am thinking.  Just a thought......

It looks good, but I agree with TFoch and Senior.......unless you are going for a more modern street rod look, like if the interior and under the hood is modern. But, hey! If you like it, that's all that matters :)

It's your car and if your happy with it go with it. It's a little to much of a modern look for me.
