Glad you like it. Yours looks good

Here's the next installment of my Model A grill creation.
I had set up an English Ford Ten dizzy in the top, and will run some type of LED wiring to the spark plugs that will be in the four outlets on the top brass piece.
While showing it to a Model A guy today, (who I thought would hate it, and he liked it) he says, you need a Model A dizzy, instead of that English crap, so I says, I would if I had one.
Of course he had a spare, so now it's more correct, haha.
The brass on the top is an old gas plant valve pulled apart, that was laying about in the shed. The gauge got the needle painted red, and a Clay Smith decal put on.
I'm now looking for a clock, and barometer for above the traffic light.
I like the one eye
I'll cover the plywood with some type of black material.
I want to make the traffic light alternate, but have no idea how to do that, yet.
I'll also put more brass and copper on it, but don't want to make it too Steam Punk.
My other issue, is do I make it all LED powered by batteries, or have it wired up to plug into mains power.
Thats pretty cool, who didnt like wheel barrow rides as kids. is it a go kart or you get pushed every now and then?
Looks like its been a while since you've been around the site. If you have any interest in selling this please let me know.
To make the walk/don't walk light operate sequencially as it would in actual use, check out the Pedestrian Signal Unit Model P2 for $44 offered by www.trafficlights.com from Lights To Go!, PO Box 533, Derby, KS 67037. Phone (316) 788-4911. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have no direct connection to this company other than being a satisfied customer! I've purchased more than 10 of their controllers for projects over the last few years with no problems. Great products at fair prices with good customer service.
I'll take a look.
We have 240 v mains down here, as opposed to your 110 v mains, so may not be suitable, but I'm sure when I get in touch with them, we can sort something out. There will be some type of converter.
This is going to take some time to build, I'm taking it slow, as I've so many ideas.
I call it the Five Star Superb. I just finished this for a client of mine. It will be mounted up on a column in his office. A fun piece to build!
Don't know why I didn't see this till now, but I think this is very cool. Not sure exactly how it's supposed to work, but I like the steam punk vibe.
I posted this before without the art work. I couldn't resist
Something l made out of an old chev grill
Different twist on the subject but I like it!
Is that an ipod player?
It's kin to BB8
Shelf from wagon and license plate shelves.
Every time I looked at this hood, I saw this in my head...1995 camaro Indy parade car hood, slightly embellished.
Malibob, I really like those license plate shelves. Neat idea.

Looks interesting but what is it?
Recommend you remove the starter ring from the flex plate, though. Those things eat up floors.
Made a lamp for my office.
3 way switch controls lights and indicator bulbs around base and in bowl for a night light.
Here's my effort in wall hangers....

I have a friend who buys and sells vintage neon signs as well as general vintage items, I cut both sides off of this Metro for him to make wall hangers. The front glass cut fine, the back exploded when I was almost through.
