Some front end detail. I need some sleep and some sunlight to wrap it up. Still a greasy mess, too.
Is that some of those Torrington bearings in there? Did you machine the axle or the spindle?

Beautiful collection of restoration of treasured parts, everything authentic. Enviable, this story makes me wish my '27 tub was a Deuce!

Doing entire brake line system today
Stabbed the engine in today. Nothing is as simple as bolt it together but a quick mock up is always nice.

It’s off a model A
Got the Lyons caps restored
