  2. Been a busy past few weeks transferring everything into the new shop, more progress will start soon. My friend David finished off the rumble seat and will get it all mounted this weekend.

    Cool looking rig, nice area to run around with a little 4 banger.

  6. A lot better! A small scar I’ll live with but an eye I can see from!

  7. It’s been a busy couple weeks getting everything into the new work shop, nearly there and this build will gain some serious traction. [​IMG]

    You got your priorities straight. Decorate the upstairs man cave first. :)
     
  9. Those inserts are looking mighty fine!

    Your '30 looks close to completion, I'd say. However, I just love the smaller '28-'29 Model A's. Good luck in your endeavor. There will be 2 more Henrys storming around Oz soon !

    I like the direction you are taking the roadster. Recently purchased a '28 CCPU and want to take a similar direction. Your build is a great inspiration thanks, I will be watching!

  18. Have you sat in my roadster Russell? The trick is - seat down and back

    Love the work that you have done so far. Any number of high compression heads will wake up the 4 banger, the hardest bit will be finding something at a reasonable price in Oz. Unfortunately, I have sold all of the my 4 banger speed parts. If you could find one, I would recommend the Winfield 7:1 crows-foot head. I sold my old one to someone over east a few years ago.

  20. Found a police head I’ll most likely snag for now that should give it a small amount of pep!

  21. Got a little bit done today, I had these (2” drop stanchions) laying around that I’ve had on the roadster, I took another 1 1/2” out - nearly wish I took out 2” but I’m 6’7 so I better make it some what comfortable. My lower pads are cast bronze and needed some trimming and filling- still not finished but for now will do for mock up. I also got a roof bow kit and been playing around with some rough ideas. Please give me some input. I do want it chopped, maybe lower? Or slanted forward more? Let me know your thoughts. Will create some door window panels as well.

    Did the same with mine to try and see what profile I would like for my top. Looking good!

    I can't photo shop for shit, tried rounding the side opening a little and thinned out the header.

    You really got it "gow"ing now. Love the look of the top, especially with the side curtains
