  2. Really fun and cool project - love the simplicity of the way it turned out. Nothing like having them to drive! Out here in Ohio at the moment - they're all 'asleep for the winter'. The cold is one thing (that doesn't both be that much), it is the fact they put a TON of salt on the roads - that just isn't good for old original tin.

    Nice job!

    I think it's cool you're using that early flatty. Love them A Roadsters!

    How did you fasten it down and did you put any anti rattle under and around the edges?
    That intake is an amazing piece of art!

    It's screwed down around the edges , and no the mounting space is so small that i didn't bother with any anti rattle. It's set in place nicely and doesn't have much room for movement as it is . Thank you , I hunted for this intake for some time . I love it , it's a polished tattersfield

    I've had a wood floor in mine over 30 years and have never regretted it.

    You have any pics
    Would love to see more ideas
    Especially of the interior
    Looking at going with a set of bucket seats, turning the rumble into a trunk
    Kind of do want to leave the fenders on but not about the bumpers

    Great work man! Very inspiring! I am being relocated from Illinois to Tucson in May for work. One of the things I'm looking forward to most is the extended windshield time allowed by the weather.
    Loved following the build! You rock!

    Yeah , used a 40 ford brake cable , a vintique repop park brake handle and ratchet that is listed as a 28-36 ( one of few repop items I bought , and one of the only parts that don't work worth a crap! ) built a mount off the 34 trans for the handle , ran the cable down the tube , all very simple and basic . I'm happy with the outcome , just not too pleased with the repop handle ! But it works , so that's what's important

    Thanks , I'm really happy with this 21 stud . It's early so Babbitt and no insert but that's ok . I didn't want the typical 59a in it . It does the job !
