I came very close to pulling the trigger on 6 new Stromberg carbs for my 6X2 intake, but ultimately decided to invest the money in a business venture instead.
But after doing my research, I did find a great local vendor that I wanted to share. Riley Automotive is based in Denver and sells some incredible traditional hot rod parts. Eric is a good guy and a wealth of information if you have questions.
And no, the attached photo is not Eric. Too bad. It could be good for business.

Here's the overall idea for the roadster's look.

Body color: Vintage VW Bahama blue, a solid light grayish turquoise color

Frame and firewall color: A creamy white solid color.

Engine color: Metallic aqua ( a sixties AMC color).
Upholstery: Pearl white with subtle accents of aqua.
Wheels: Vintage torq thrusts on the rear with white walls. Chrome reverses on the front white walls
