    I thought I’d post some photos of the Brookville roadster that I’m working on for myself. It’s a mix of original Henry parts, hand fab’d parts, and a very small amount of purchased parts.
    The frame consists of some stamped rails, a So-Cal Model A rear crossmember, and a custom flat front crossmember. The x-member is a modified Ionia piece with a custom center crossmember and trans mount.

    I like it! Takes a brave man to build a roadster to drive in Michigan.

    Very nice! The attention to detail is obvious. Really like the tie rods on the end of the wishbones.

    Well this weekend involved working on the firewall, but I did manage to assemble the intake, carbs, linkage, and frog-mouth scoops

    That 39 steering box is very intriguing! I'm doing something similar...and also got a little flack from the "geometry police"...
    Looking forward to seeing it all hooked up.

    flthd31 - My friend John Swander (Swanwaco32) turned me onto running that box. I built a '34 Ford truck with the same setup and thought the steering was great. I had no noticeable bumpsteer, and the only downside was that the draglink isn't quite parallel to the tierod. I think the benefits of having an old cross steer box (vs a Vega) far outweighs the look of the draglink.

    On a side note too, I used a '33-34 pitman arm (with the ball as part of the forging). I had to file out the double splines at each 90 degree increment so I could index it properly on the later box. I'll get a picture of it this week if you want to see the setup.
