    New rims , with rollers for tires.. since I put a set of 35 wires on my model a, these wheels have a new home on the 34. Now that cold weather is pretty much here, its time to start really digging in to this one

    That's a real early marine flathead the gear box is the clutch drive and the trans. Forward and backwards is all you got ...a cool old motor setup , I'm trying to find a guy that needs marine parts, these would really help someone out building an old flathead powered boat

    Are you going to move the firewall forward so it looks "real"? No need for a recessed firewall with a flathead.

    No I'm not going to move it. It's to much work and I don't believe I'm good enough with fiberglass to make a nice job of it. Still struggling with the doors so that's enough of a challenge. I did buy a steel cowl vent and surround so mold into the car. So that will help the reality , also the flip put windshield

    Started concentrating on the drivetrain today. Someone torched the brake pedal off, a spare came with the car , so i installed that, drew up some brackets to use the factory brake lever to work with a new style dual master cylinder . I trimmed down my cowl vent and got the rivets drilled out. Made it move again after 20 years. I carefully layed out the cut out pattern in the cowl to install it. It Should go smoothly. Tomorrow I'll get the brackets welded on and maybe get the cowl vent in! I also test fit the dash. I getting very excited !

  18. I had a similar problem trying to adapt a newer brake booster/MC to the '48 Ford I'm working on. Here's what I ended up doing and it works great! It'll be cool to see what you came up with .

    This is what one guy did. Now I'll buy the correct brake rods with Heim joints to make this work. But as far as design, he did it perfectly !

    Cowl vent is in! I trimmed it out. Also Used a sanding disk and recessed the vent into the fiberglass. Then I glued it in. Clamped it for a few hours. Solid as a rock! Now to glaze over it with fiberglass jell, then a thin layer of icing and it's golden!

    3m is the best shit there is... Glued the vent in, solid as a rock. It literally penetrated deep down in the fiberglass. It's perfect. A few guys had suggested liquid nails ... BAD idea!! It didn't work for me at all... This 3m panel adhesive was like welding steel. I'm very happy with it. It's starting to look like a real 34.. Good enough for me for a driver! I also started working on the grill. Stripped the paint, trimmed the sides down where I wanted. Roughed the top in just to trim it down... It is coming. Time to get the radiator ordered and start re shaping all the nose cone .
    Tomorrow is another day

    Newest purchase. I got an OK deal on this. It's super nice other than some idiot. Cut some slots in the sides were it mounts.. But it's perfect for a driver... Now I have a lot of hood work and stuff to do so that it looks right

    Roughed in the cowl vent today. Other than a skim coat of icing, it's done and looks great. I assembled the springs and lift arm so it now works perfect .
    Also I cut off the terrible steering bracket they fabbed up. Only to find they torched the hole out really large for the original location. So I plasma cut a plate that I will weld flush into the frame once I know exactly where it's going to be. This steering box is very very tight and feels like new. So I think I may stick with if stead if switching to my spare f1 box..I also fit the inner fender aprons on.. I need some advice on what to do with them they seen about an inch too long in the back compared to a factory one. But what I'm unsure of is how to lower them due to the channel of the body.. Any suggestions ?

    I picked up the grill today.. That was exciting! I'm really glad I finally have a real, original 34 grill that's nice. So I rushed home to clamp it on and see what one really looked like! It's amazing that grill was a factory production every day car grill at one time. The lines are soooo perfect and it has so much character and attitude .
    I also bolted the dash in were it is supposed to be. I went to a friends house who had a steel 33 3 window and I made a pattern of the windshield bolt hole layout where the dash attached . Came home , drilled the holes and it was perfect , I going to extreme extents to make this real looking. So I hope it turns out well!! Here is a few shots from today. The last picture is my ultimate goal... This car is perfect to me and is exactly the look/stance I want to go after . I'm not sure who's it is exactly but it sure caught my eye

  28. Lookin good! I'd imagine I could have bought 2 or 3 glass bodies for what I have in my steel 5 window.
