My friend Jeff at JJ's rods has come up with a boot to go over the steering column or brake pedal where it goes through the firewall.....pretty tidy way to seal the gaps

I never took a pic, but a buddy of mine that was an old-time hot rod guy from way back made a really nice looking bull-nose/grill shell ornament in a really unique way. I had NO idea what it was or where it came from till he told me, he had taken an antique art-deco silver spoon, cut the spoon part off and ground a slightly rounded point on that end, and used the handle , formed it to follow the contour of the grill shell, but with a slight kick-up at the end, and silver soldered a small V8 emblem from an Explorer to the pointed end, which was just above the grill insert. The end with the kick-up was at the back of the grill shell just ahead of the end of the piano hinge on the hood. I was totally convinced it was some uber-rare 1930's Ford piece I had never seen before until he told me what it was. It was really very slick.
