Ok I think I have enough parts to start a build thread Last month or 2 I've been collecting parts to build my first rod. The aim is to make it as simple/quick/painless (unlikely) as possible. I've spent a bit of time researching what I want to build. The basic summary is: A chassis, '40 ford front axle and split bones, BW rear on 4 bar and trans leaf, front half of a tourer body, possibly y-block and 4 speed. I have the 4 bar/front spring/various brackets etc. on their way from speedway motors. I'm running deitz headlights and 32-36 tails. Bomber seats with padded bases, ammo case glove box and probably a luggage chest on the back to hold a fuel tank, battery, tool kit. Here is my some what collection of parts so far: Grill shell: Somewhat cleaned shell, few cracks to weld, not much: early days mock up Gutted the chassis last night and scored some hoops for cheap, just need to find some cheap rims to fit them in. Installed the racing seat: Hopfefully the body/axle/rear end parts arrive soon and the ball can roll faster -Owen- I scored a 2" chopped shield frame and posts from the very helpful Striper (pete) which I gave a quick flap wheel to tidy them up for now.
