You're doing a very nice job, this is almost a "text book" build. One (hopefully constructive) comment: It's not a good idea to support the rear...

love that old FO...
Just back from Pendine. Had a caravan booked for the week, starting the Monday before the races. Had the first part of the week as a family...
I seem to be at odds with all the other posts here, but would it be worth bending the tie rod forward (or rearward) a little? Stop worrying about...
I was going to say leave it alone. Those old Ford V8s just beg to be thrashed to within an inch of their lives. Even in stock form they go really...
Hi Ed, I'll be there (as you know) 33 coupe no 47.
The 40/41 pickup cabs have 8 bolts holding them down, 4 on each side.
The 4 corners get the springs. The middle 2 on each side are bolted solid....
I only have 3 little things to say.
If there are two of you working on a car make sure you don't assume the other guy has tightened the wheel...
Naah. They're the officers.
Nice work going on there, Duncan.
I'm kinda with you, guys. Like you say, once bitten twice shy. I post on 3 forums. Here, the Barn and a local UK forum. When I used to do a build...
Sooo. I heard PB have relaxed their rules. As a test here is a pic of my 41 hosted on PB. If this works I have a bunch of pics to share and some...

^^ No, but when you open the hood you can see the road past the engine.
(Can't do that these days)
The brake backplates, wheel cylinder and brake shoe arrangement all look good to my eye.
I never noticed the old British reg plate on the cabrio. That's cool.
For those that don't know, Jimmy's cabrio has UK hot rod history way back...
Hey, Jimmy, glad you're posting again.
I live in a suburb of Solihull (near Birmingham) called Shirley. For years (it only closed relatively recently) there was a Chinese restaurant on...
The Rosemurgy triple tone Galaxie black and whites seem to have been taken at the same time as the colour shot judging by the big Lincoln parked...
As this has been bumped to the top, what was the outcome? Did it go ok? Hope so.
Mr Google told me it was AMC doing the teardown..
This is very interesting. Most, if not all motor manufacturers have a teardown area. They will buy competitors cars and strip them down to...
Someone's been a bit naughty with that one - let the lass keep her dignity.
Is this one more authentic?
I had this roadster pic on my computer at work as a desktop for a while years ago. The version I had had "Ike Hanks" written on it.
^^ You two! Get a garage!
Mmmm Look at that pile of 8.20s. Is it just me??
Guy in white shirt thinking - "Hey, I need one of those for my 49-50 51-52 53-54...
