    i curved our hockey teams sticks in the '70s...
    maybe set up a way to steam those end pieces, and then a clamp set up where they can cool...

    That would be the correct way to create them. The ends pieces I purchased were not but were cut down to fit the contour. It caused them to look too thin.

    With most of the interesting stuff pretty much done I have not posted anything. I have been working on the motor. Fixing broken exhaust bolts and putting a few heli coils in place. I decided I don't want to drop over $400 for a shorty generator and went with a one wire alternator. I know not very period correct for a 50's hot rod. But I did use the saddle clamp with a longer strap.
    1.375 x 13.0 18ga. I cut the mounting ears making it look a little more round. The front pulley works with my early 30's fan. A little faux paint and there you have it. 20210917_131730.jpg
