  1. Very cool, an actual roadster "build" rather than buy

  3. Great looking build!

    Keep it up!
     
  4. Cool build, you obviously get it. Nice to see! I can't read the patent number on your photo but you can read the description of what it was designed to do by entering you number into the USPTO site. http://www.uspto.gov/patents/process/search/

    I wish you guys with build would put all pictures on a website with no comments but your own so we could see a complete build or as one goes.

    In response to the previous post: That's funny, cause every time I post on my thread multiple times with no responses, I assume no one is listening or cares. Then again I'm known to talk to much.

    i thought that is why you have a album (which can have commentary) and a thread.

    I have assumed that too only to have some one ask me in person about something they saw on the thread. He said he doesn't post much, LOL:rolleyes:
     
  13. Hotrodding is supposed to be communal. You know, "pass me that wrench" or "will this part work with my build?" It'd be pretty boring to read one person drone on and on about their build by themselves.

    Besides, comments on build threads help with enthusiasm and motivation.

    Awesome build so far man! I'm 23 and just started building my 31 pickup. It's always cool to see younger guys like me getting into it too!

    For sure not a lot of us young guys are "carrying the torch"
     

  16. WAY TO GO! Glad to hear it.
     
  17. Ah, there's more than you think. You just have to know where to look.

    That's not stock
    Krueger made some very good performance parts for bangers back in the day when bangers were king
    that is a very nice piece of history

    this is great looking build will be following
     
  23. That Kreger unit is accessory, not stock for sure. Stock A mounts are just a simple horseshoe. You should clean that up, rebuild it as best you can and run it!

    Even though I'm doing the labor and greasy work myself, I damn near live for comments and feedback on my build these days. HAMB members are the only people I have to share this passion with.

    I'm gonna Try To Rebuild It. It Looks Like It Uses The Stock Model A Horseshoe Mount and Its Just Replaces The Stock Springs With Rubber? Not Quite Sure though

    I like your direction - cool hot rod.
     
  28. I'm not so sure about that. The tabs look different from the mounts I've seen. But you haven't shown it to us blown apart yet.

    Regardless, replacing the rubber with what it came with originally will probably be nearly impossible. However, I was watching Stacey David's Gearz a while back and he had this stuff that comes as a putty that you can mold into your parts to make a new bushing that you can't otherwise find a replacement for. It took me a while to find it again, it's called Versimold.
     
  29. I should add, that if it indeed does turn out to be an add on to the stock mount, Mac's appears to sell something similar and i think they have rebuild kits that may work also.
