    Tig welded the ends back in, probably could have done it all with a hammer

    Just about got the dash in the way i thought worked best, need to blend the outer edges to sort of give it a factory feel. I won't really know till i've got some paint on things for a contrast but i'm digging the way the lines of this dash are working out 47 dash image.jpg

    Chris,

    The roadster looks great! I love the dash in it. Very nice work. I'm slowly collecting parts to do an A roadster in the future. That's after I finish all my other cars and build another garage, but can't start planning too early. I hope to see this thing on the road this summer!

    thanks for the encouragement guys, i'm hoping to punch back in on the dash and maybe mess around with the radiator and shroud soon.

    good to see you on here Josh, i'd hope to have this done by summer but at the same time i'm really enjoying this project and don't want to rush things
     
  6. That is going to be a nice roadster! Leave It To Beaver:rolleyes:

    thanks guys,

    update, i just carved up some white oak body blocks today and messed around with the seat, tomorrow i'm finishing up the wood work and hopefully will be back into the dash to move some things around for the steering.

    Beav You do great work, can't wait to see your roadster out this year. Here are a couple more pics of the suspension I took as we built it. ( I will put all these on memory card for you too). Keep up the good work Man. IMG_20150117_173026.jpg [/ATTACH] IMG_20150117_172941.jpg IMG_20150118_072155.jpg

    Thanks Jesse,

    I knew exactly how I wanted this car to end up, but I know my limits in both time and fabrication perfection. Every great structure starts out with a solid foundation and one of the main reasons this project is coming out so nice is the fact it sits upon probably one of the best custom built chassis.

    Thanks again to the fine gentalmen at Old Soul Hot Rod Shop.

    Lookin good, I too know my limitations on chassis work. I'm giving another positive shout out for Old Soul Hot Rod Shop, Jesse and Jerry are doing excellent work up there in NY. Mine is under the knife there right now.

    Beav and Josh,
    Thanks for the kind words on our work, I appreciate that more than you know. Honored to be a part of such killer builds with such good people. Both cars will be amazing!
