    Thank You Sir. All would go better if we had here normal spring weather. This year we have snow very much (10-20") and very cold. Last years end of March snow has gone and days are warm.....

    Today I piece rear axle and change ring and pinion. Need to built some kind of stand where I can lift rear axle vertical. If weather is going better, I want to paint (Final 2K acryl) axles, frame, small stuff before Eastern or during Eastern.

    4litre (gal) paint + harder + thinner... has been bought last week. total approx 220euro (260usd).

    That is an excellent roadster you are building. It is good that you are getting your son involved with it. I got my love of cars from my father at a young age. Good Luck with it.

    Thank You. Oskar -son is interesting about cars, mostly hot rods (because we have only hot rods).
    I hope that he is interested in another hobbies too (football, baseball, icehockey,....).
    Now number one are school, friends, legos,...

    When I was young my parents were working 7days week (farmers) and nobody else in my family or our neighbours were interested cars or motorcycles. They didn´t have time or interest, but my sister husband help me little ( he is 10years older) and teach me welding etc....
    I was 19years old when I bought my first American car, 1967 camaro and built it very nice during first winter season 31y ago. After that Street race 1955 chevy,....

    Im 52y now and Oskar 7y. If everything is going ok, I want to built fast street car. I started with mucsle cars and street race competitions. I have dream to built 1967 nova street race car. +800cid engine, Strong powerglide, 9" race rear axle, gear vendor...... Pump gas + gear vendor = can drive on the street,..... This is only dream to built that kind of mucsle car, if I have money and if Oskar is interested in built it with me. Car would we ready when he has driving license, so we do not have hurry. we are waiting for lottery money.....hahaa.

    Sundayjob; 1940 Rear axle rebuilding. Ring and pinion was original 4.44:1. New one is 3.25:1.
    I changed another differential bearing. Pinion bearing was good, so not need to change it.

    Just washed tubes and center section. 75years shit inside. Tomorrow I put it together with shimgaskets.

    rear axle is ready. I had promblems with pinion bearings. Motion gear ring and pinion set looks very good quality, but pinion neck was 6/100mm too tick. Need to be 38,10mm (1 1/2") but it was 38,16mm. ...

    Now works after lathejobs and bearing slides tightly before locking with nuts.

    I have never paint when its under +5dec celsius, are You?
    When painted , for example rear axle, we lifted axle inside garage.

    In tent I keep 8-12hours after paintjob +5dec celsius or more.
    After that can be as cold as in Alaska or Siperia. Now a days 2K paints has only 10-20% thinner.
    If You have very warm You use slow hardener, if You have weather like now here, You need to use faster hardener.

    Everybody knows that those water Basic colors must have very good painting room, all water must fade away before clear coat. I do not use those "water" paints. Hot rods not have clear coat.

    Fantastic job you’re doing. Regarding painting I have always been told not to paint below 65* farhenheit. You’re doing it above 5* Celsius/42* farhenheit? I’m going to have to look into that as it would sure speed things up around here!

    Epoxy primer can be paint very low temperature, even lower than +5dec Celcius.
    I use only Industrial Epoxy primers. Those are "hard stuff", smells like hell, and very good "contraction" (I do not know right english word , what I mean).

    When paint 2K , need to be more like 10dec Celcius. Before painting temperature was higher, but now a days those new paints (like new Glasurit, what I use) are spray lower temperature. New "line" Glasurit is made 3:1:0.5 ...

    Today tent was nearly too hot and I opened front of tent. Every time I use before painting liquid gas heater + 2 x 1500W light + Sun. Rear Axle I painted just outside of my garage. Very warm Place (sun) but maybe not enough warm.... but when using 40% matting base in 2K painting, does not matter. Anyway paint is not "shine".

    “TENACITY” that is the word that defines you and this build. I dub this the “Tena-City” Deuce.

    People are going to wonder where “Tena-City”, just say “Your standing near it”. Heck, people wonder where Temple City is.........I tell them South East of Pasadena;).

    I do not understand Cyclone Kevin text (my english is not good) but I hope its something important.

    Tena-city -deuce?

    What a shit are You talking about

    AULIS

    nb. This is my thread, where I have share pictures of my 1932 roadster Project.
    Im working with hot rods every day 4-8hours and enjoy what Im doing.
    If here some person are start to talk shit in my thread, I can leave this thread and not post any picture. I built cars my way and I understand if somebody else is do thing different way.
    I can leave parts, car to car painting Company if I want, Im never use last money for living, travelling, hot rods,...but if I want to built car old style, using old stuff, own job, as muc as possible old parts and own ideas.....that is my way to built.

    Tenacity is an English word that means you stick with it. If a person is tenacious they follow through with their project. I don't think he was disrespecting you. But you sure did fly off the handle, didn't you? You might want to ask the definition of what you don't understand before you get pissy about it.

    I think the real hot rodder's on the HAMB admire the way you manage to do such a good job with limited facilities. Your ingenuity is to be admired and your style of build is what the HAMB is all about. Please don't penalize us for a misunderstanding of the meaning of a word. No one was demeaning you in any way.

    Auliz, maybe this will help.Cyclone Kevin is a fan of your work and was naming your car as a compliment to your work ethic and skills. I appreciate your efforts to communicate with us in English, sometimes things get confusing in translation and cultural differences but you can be sure that most of the time the HAMB members are trying to keep comments positive and when they question why you do something a certain way they are just curious and not condemning your methods. When they offer up another source for parts they are only trying to offer up a suggestion of another source or method you may not know about since you live in Finland. Please keep posting about this build.

    Aulis, tenacity means sitkeys, päättäväisyys in Finnish. It’s a good word. Keep going!

    This cut out on the synchro teeth is to enable you to insert the input shaft into to case. The cluster gear is too big. You need to do this modification on Ford gears too when fitting to an early case without enough clearance at the bottom.

    About the only thing I don't like about your roadster is that its not in my garage.
