Default Jordan's 29 Ford Roadster build thread

I have been building this roadster over the last couple years but I have not shared much. Some of you may recognize a few of the pictures from my tech week thread "How to channel an A the Jordan way". I figured I would put all my pictures up and start an offical build thread.

Here's the action from the last 2 years.

Very cool fab work. I appreciate it. I think chopped orchard posts would look great for your roadster windshield or a Hallock style frame. Do you have a direction yet?

Those were my thoughts exactly. I'm really not sure, but at this particular moment I'm leaning towards chopped posts.


Your converse are not shop shoes. Buy boots.

Yes, very clean work and great detail in the fabrication. There are a lot of ideas to pick up on in this build. I'm subscribing.

Great job- wish I could do work like that. The only thing I notice is the lack of support for the headlights- they are going to vibrate badly and that blows bulbs very quickly. You might want to atleast tie the two sides together. Looks great!

Its solid rod so they are pretty sturdy, although I'm sure the weight of the headlights will turn the rods into a tuning fork. I will have to use your idea!

My lame bent tie rod is going down in flames. As soon as I get back into town custom steering arms will be on the way... Bump steer be thy enemy.
