    Dash looks good. The way you drive you don't bother looking at the speedo anyway. :rolleyes:

    Enjoyed our 32 build. Very talented work. I build several Brookville Roadsters every year.

    Baron,
    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. Chassis in Spies Hecker sparable polyester.jpg

    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.

    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. 20191117_123255.jpg 20191117_122524.jpg

    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
     
  23. Really a nice build thread and a lot of great ideas that are well executed - nice work all in all!

    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. 20191123_115233.jpg Chassis 11 25 19 b.jpg
