Make me an offer!
Awesome build, @Deuced Up! :cool:
I really like the way you've guided us through your *thought process* (including the dead-ends) before getting...
FWIW, I've seen "Harvey" cast into a Schiefer aluminum flywheel.
Suspect they made aluminum castings for many SoCal hot rod & racing parts...
Awesome build, @-Brent- :cool:
I agree- both bumpers were popular in the early-mid '60's,
but the 2.5" pipe bumper looks more racecar-ish while...
My *favorite* roadster is Phil Cool's orange 1978 AMBR-winning highboy.
It reminded us that there's more to life than vans and Buick V6's....
Nobody's mentioned @Jersey Suede 's pickup?:confused:
Have you tried Fordwood?
I think we HAMBers have more in common with restores than with modern hot rodders.
We're just restoring our cars to a different point in time...
It also has a '28-29 A cowl, hood & grille shell.

Mine are 8-32.
Some of the threads are kinda worn but none that won't clean up.:)
No need to "super-size" to 10-32... at least this time.
I do have a thread chaser & tap/die set, but thought I'd better ask the HAMB before risking damaging some expensive wheels.:eek:...
Anybody know the size/thread count of the machine screws that hold Fenton wheels' caps on?:confused:
I didn't understand Gray Baskerville's slang when describing Barry Lobeck's flamed '40 Ford coupe or Lil John's T sedan, but...
X3. Just replace the rotten wood.
Yes- it comes up in regularly in threads about aesthetics, "the look", stance, etc.
Check these search results:...
Love those hard lines. :cool:
How were you able to get identical straight lengths & bend matching radius curves?
Did you use a jig? Or just...
Aluminum fuel cell filler.
No brand name or markings but fits JAZ, RCI tanks & possibly others.
Bolt circle is approx. 5.25"....

X2 everything @56don said.
Here's my ol' 55 Chevy. Pay no attention to the ribbed chrome hoses. :rolleyes:

IMO, the chrome finish makes them a little more...
