    Hi my name is Chris Wells. I'm 26 years old from Australia.I own a shop called Bus Motor Home & Vehicle Engineering on the sunshine coast QLD. We pretty much build anything that comes in the door from buses to cars. I've been on the H.A.M.B for a few years now and current building my first hot rod its a 1930 ford roadster its finally up to a rolling stage. I've been using my mates body to build it off and about to go to the states to get a body and motor on the 20th of august.
    It will have a tri powered 350 small block with a 4 speed muncie box
    Heres a few photos of the build so far.

    Have you submitted your PTB yet? You don't need a 6x2 intake with carbs do you? :D

    Y'know, it's always fun to read a thread like this, because you get to see what the English language looks like outside North America ;)

    Nice build.

    Hi Chris.

    The brake pedal pushrod looks like it has a bend in it , if it has it will need to be changed to a straight rod as a bent one could bend even more and lose your brakes if you hit the brakes hard.
