    There is a point where you have to decide if that is pure hot rod or pure art in metal. That video should be fun to see.

    This is very nicely done. And I'm hoping some day to see more of your wonderful '36 project. Maybe you needed some time away from it.

    I worked in the telecom industry in the early 70's as a CO installer, and laced tens of thousands of feet of cable in horizontal ladder and vertical relay racks. Below is a photo of how to do a basic lacing job, and also a link to waxed lacing cord.

    Thanks for the great pictures. I like the way you installed the headlight brackets to the F-1 shock mounts. I was thinking of mounting my headlight bar to them and now this gives me other ideas.

    Hey 36,
    Nice build and great work. Your motor looks very 60ish...similar to what we first built for our 40 Willys Coupe in 1960. Those 6 carbs are a little difficult to adjust, but once done, they gave us lots of power and tremendous sound.

    So, take a video with a digital camera or if you don't have one I suppose a quality phone video will do. Once recorded and saved to your computer or laptop, it is ready to post. First, create a You Tube page for yourself. Real name, fake name, catchy name, all are appropriate. Then once loaded and ready, there is a movie tab that is for uploading a video to your You Tube page.
    upload_2018-8-4_9-10-55.png
    red square is the upload movie tab


    Click on that upload tab and find your saved video. The longer the video, the longer the upload takes. But if you don't like what you see when finished, you can always delete it and start over. This allows you to go back to your files to edit the film to make a finished copy. What you post is what everyone sees. Use your movie editor program to make a finished copy. It will look good to all of us.

    Jnaki
    Save in as high quality as possible on your computer. Once on your You Tube channel, copy the secure link and paste it on the HAMB post of your build. Sometimes, HAMB immediately shows the large film page, other times, it lists the link. When you hit "post reply", then the big You Tube screen pops up.

    If you get the You Tube channel on your smart TV or devices, you can watch it anywhere. PM me if you need any other help ideas.

    Man
    Just like the TV shows. Leaving for Bonneville in less the 24 hrs, still got work to do

    I really hope the timing isn’t off 180, like they always seem to be on TV. ;)[​IMG][​IMG]

    Color yet to be determined. I’m using stainless and chrome on the suspension components, which leads to more of a 60’s build. The engine is ground and painted smooth ( although to be changed when painted)

    If the 9 yr old wants to get more involved, he wants white. So, white body and frame. Chrome suspension and a light blue with lots of pearl for the drive train. That is a very likely combination.

    I failed guys. Pulling out of Reno this evening, headed to Wendover. Something made me look back at the rear end, suspension, etc. and I noticed s small crack atop the radius rod, in front of the bolt hole location

    Pulled into a parking lot. And, on the other side, exact same crack in the same spot

    I had a friend fly in from Seattle who was making the run to Bonneville with me. I can’t risk it

    I’ll post picks of the cracks. I’m very bummed

    Great build perfect welds & love wire looms. Obvious lots of experience. Surprised u used hairpins & tube axle but steering looks like good setup. I love & follow post “cowl steering—just stop” tons of great info on front suspension also like post on “unsprung weight issues- - -“. Watching for more.

    Great closeup of crack but not sure where: old Ford end of radius rod that bolts on rear? Top bolt or bottom? Hard to believe you beat on it that hard to cause crack. Is there a bind? Hard to believe that either. Defect in old metal.

    So, pictures are not posting here from the beach of South Lake Tahoe

    The crack is just in front of the mounting hole of the rear radius rod to the rear end

    My theory is that, the added weight of a passenger ( mind you I had some rear leafs out to soften the ride), lowered the car. And thus the extra load on the rear leafs, causing the rear end to torque up and twist, put added stress on the radius rod at that point.

    I did not triangulate the radius rod or incorporate an upper link, so they solely took the load.

    Not a problem to fix and resolve. I just maybe should have had more then 180 miles on a new build, before I journeyed 1800 miles or so

    This gentleman is was hot rodding and learning is about

    Hmmm, cruising the H.A.M.B. this evening, realized I haven’t put any current pics of the car

    Here ya go. Plans for paint will come this winter. Enjoying the heck out of this car.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]89a839708f14e67fdbca82ec8701d2c6.jpg[/IMG]17f7766526dd8cdab998d282096bb241.jpg[/IMG]

    What did you do to the body to get that finish?
