Default **Malcolm Model A Roadster Build**

Part One is here:
http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s...hlight=malcolm


Finally had some time to get more work done and....
It's a roller! Pretty exciting day.


(cell phone photos)
























Rod (Hawgrod on here) did a VERY nice job on the rear axles.
He welded a ring on the axle flanges, machined them flat, and drilled the 5x5.5" pattern. Thanks alot, Rod!




Also, as I've mentioned before, I wouldn't be this far along and this wouldn't be turning out as nice without the help of some great friends.
Andy, Jason, Jeff, TJ, Rod --- Thanks again, I really appreciate it!



Now headed back out to route the exhaust.
Will post updates as I make progress.


Malcolm

Looks very tidy and well thought out. The fork is quite unobtrusive, too.
It is going to be a stunning car.

Thanks, guys! It is going to sit fairly low. I have it set up to where the top of the rear tire will be even with the top of the wheel-well reveal... if that makes sense.

That's not Omaha,... no snow....
Looks great Nick, man, I'll need to make plans to swing by and see it in person next trip through. Hoping I might have a line on a Model A, setting in 'one of the buildings' out
in my area. would be cool do get something like yours going. Until then, I'll enjoy watching
your progress.

The frame looks great!! I can't wait until mine is a roller too.. But I still gotta start on it.

Are you going to be doing updates for everything else in this thread or are you doing a separate thread for body, drivetrain, etc?
