    I use So-Cal spreader bars both plain and shiny on all my chassis.

    Cheap idea, but a good 'conversation-piece'.

    I have some other SoCal Speed stuff that I really like so I will probably go there. The cam shaft idea I am kinda on the fence about. The V shaped ones ABSOLUTELY NOT.
     
  15. Make them

    I go to the steel shop and get some pipe. Then I do some hot rodding.
    shiiiiieeet......

    could there be an easier project with such a high reward/effort ratio? every time you look at your car when filling the tank, you'll think "I made that spreader bar" and feel all warm and tingly.

    nothing worthwhile is..
    car i put socal chrome spreader bars on recently are getting little brown rust spots already..production chrome is worth what you pay for it..
     
  22. I decided not to use one on my 32 roadster - keep it simple.
    But if I wanted one, I'd make it myself...

    I made mine. Used a piece of scrap streamlined tubing for the front. In the rear I used the stock spreader bar, but modified it to fit my bobbed frame rails. I also curved it slightly to match the profile of the rear of the car.

    I made one for my model A. A piece of pipe filled with solid stock. I like the idea of having something a bit more substancial in front of me.

    I was going to mention the Mcgee roadster, but decided to keep it quiet..!
    Other one is Nitti's right?

    The new veed ones are too pronounced, whilst the above photos show they were quite subtle to start with.

    You could always make it out of stainless and have it polished....

    Nobody reproduces one like an original. You could make on that looked original, but it would require some time. The ends on an original are cast pieces.
