Lotsa great ideas here thanks for posting
Dash looks good. The way you drive you don't bother looking at the speedo anyway.
Isn't that the reason for shift lights ?
Couple coats of SPI epoxy primer and the chassis is looking almost ready for paint.
Enjoyed our 32 build. Very talented work. I build several Brookville Roadsters every year.
Super nice build. I really like the kickup for the rear axle but the whole thing is top notch.
Rails are looking pretty good in the Spies Hecker spray polyester. Couple small spots need a little more attention.
very nice work!
I've had this old firewall kicking around for a long time (almost 20 years). Other than being badly pitted, it wasn't too bad. I must have 40 hours between making space for valve cover and bell-housing clearance ,making a dimple for the distributor along with welding up a few holes and filling the pits and smoothing the whole thing out. Tomorrow I'll go over this one more time, filling a few more pits on the mounting feet before one or two more coats of primer. Going to look great in Ford Wimbledon White.
Your Deuce is looking great . Sent PM about the pics you sent me . Bob
Got the 34 and 36 wishbones in epoxy primer today along with the front axle and a few other small pieces to the puzzle.
The chassis was painted this past week. Thanks to Mike Noonan for doing some beautiful paint work. Came out great.
Looking good Baron
Finished up the firewall today and painted it Wimbledon white. One more piece to the puzzle finished.
Making progress now that the cold weather has arrived and the other cars are put away for the season.
Installed the 327 and 4 spd today, and ran the line from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder.
Bolted the exhaust system on today. 2 1/2" pipes with Porter steel pack mufflers should let the blower motor breath and should sound decent.
Looks great Baron!
Great build thread. Lots of unique ideas and will be an outstanding roadster. I'm a fan.
Really like that color on the frame
Thanks. The whole car will be painted the same. It's Aubergine . Looks purple inside the shop and more maroon outside in the sun. Took me two years to decide on a color....lol
Really a nice build thread and a lot of great ideas that are well executed - nice work all in all!
Good taste in color and it tastes good baked LOL
Finished the front brakes Saturday. Brakes and clutch have been bled and are done and ready to go. Next on to install the fuel pump, radiator and hoses and get the motor ready to run. Plan is to run it long enough to break the cam in,hopefully before Christmas.
Great build, going to be a beautiful roadster
Roadster is looking really good, that blown chevy will be a lot of fun in it. You always build the coolest stuff
What a great build, love that chassis ! Oh your gonna hear that engine
with those mufflers! lol
The drilled backing plates look great & I like the color choice. Very nice work; looking forward to seeing your progress.
