    Rounded up seems give an almost factory look to it and that really appeals to me.

    I think you're right, taking the belt line all the way around would make it look more finished. Beautiful work.

    Has anyone else noticed that Chris asks our opinion on things when he has more ability, skill and taste than all of us wrapped up together? I think he does it to make us feel involved, lol. We all know that whatever he does we'll all love it!

    We got the hood straps made and mounted on the car. Got the kit from Lime Works, and I have to say they are top quality!

    Also got the corners welded on, and mostly finished out. Just a little more work and its all done.

    I got the Sellers Equipped Windshield frame today. I have to say it is absolutely' a work of art. 100% perfect!!! Plus we got it in only 4 days from when he got the check. I'm in the process of getting it fitted to the body. But it totally changed the look of the car.

    Chris, Is the tank fitted to mount between the frame "Z" and the back of the body ? If so, I have a dead space in the same area. I was thinking about usin it for a mini trunk for a simple tool bag and repair kit. I still wanted my tank to be mounted on top of the "Z". Love the look you came up with.

    I got some plexiglass cut for the windshield for now till we get actual glass cut. And I also made mounts for the tail lights, got them mounted, and finished off the rear of the frame so it looks like a bobbed original.

  14. :)did I miss something, what are you using for steering. I'm doing a 1/4 eliptic front end too and I'm just trying to sort out the steering (cross steer RHD) just waiting to see what you are going to do:D

    Very cool build!! I think if the back axle bells were flipped so the rear leaf spring would be in the front of the axle and the rear frame rails shortened it would really showcase that rear end and take the gap away from the back of the frame. But what do I know. AWESOME A+

    Probably showing my lack of knowledge here but what are the brake lights off of? They look really good on there!

    We are going to do the Schroeder side steering. Thats the only side steering box that I do. We did a reversed corvair side steering on my dads pickup, and its just been really hard to get all of the flex out of how you can mount the box. But with the schroeder box once their mounted its solid.




    When this truck came to me they initially had it set up that way. But the guy at "last refuge" put the rear cross-member back way to far for that setup so the rear tires were almost completely behind the back of the cab. So we switched it back in front of the cross-member so the rear tires overlap the cab.



    They are reproduction 37' ford taillights. You can get them from a few guys, I believe Sacramento vintage ford carries them.

    Ive been working on designing the brackets that will hold the schroeder steering. Once they are designed I can get them waterjet cut.

    I got the steering box mocked up today. Everything is ligning up great. So now I can send the designs of the brackets out to get cut.

    Also got the steering wheel mocked up. Its one from Allen Johnson's shop. Absolutly a beautiful piece. He does a great job at making a machined piece look cast.

    All hands. Chris' spectacular project needs an art deco instrument cluster to restore. Think big and funky to fill the center of that dash. Any leads really appreciated!!
     
  24. Fellas, please explain to me how ALL the F'ugly steering wheels show up in those "show rodz"??? WTF?? AND I am sure those "check book builders" payed heavy duty $$ for some P.O.C billet flame steering wheel. Look at how beautiful this wheel is. TOTALLY nails the "vibe" of the era. Love this build, am a subscriber. Very inspired. Thanks for sharing. :cool::cool:

    I got all the pieces cut out, and all mounted in place. Steering box is in the car, and now its just holding the column. I took some 2" tubing, and got one bearing that fits over the steering shaft and fits inside the tube. Then got one that fits over the end of the steering box, and fits inside the tube. That way I can mount to the 2" tube and nothing will bind up.
