    100_2789.jpg Can't go wrong with a bendpack 4 post lift. 9000lb lift is roughly 3k.

    Mooneyes gauges are very cool, I had them in my 3 window, they’ll look great in your Coup.
    I haven’t done much on mine recently but I started to replace the headlights (finally!). I bought the repro Deuce units within weeks of getting the coup as I hated what was on it and that was over a year ago! Got them mocked up last night, initial trial fit determined that the headlight bar was back to front as the lights were pointing up and clashing with the grille shell. Now just need to wire them in.

    Before:

    Your house project looks like it’s going well! Very exciting stuff :)

    I have the Direct-Lift 4 post standard width, height 5 years now, use a lot, store a car on in winter, 0 problems. This is the only import that comes with various certifications, have friends with same lift, no problems. I highly recommend this product, was $2095 when purchased. Good luck in your quest. Project looking good.

    I didn't buy a lift for parking cars, I bought it to build them. This is a Rotary asymmetrical, the greatest tool I have ever owned and possibly the best lift sold. Make sure you have minimum 6" of 'crete in the center of the floor and wire tied rebar if you have time and access to materials.

    Get your place built and get back to your car, I enjoy following along!

    I drove through Meadows about a month ago on the way to the family cabin. It was still pretty smokey from all the fires, but beautiful nonetheless. Enjoy your retirement!

    Finally moving into the house! We plan to finish the plumbing and paint. Flooring next. But I can put the coupe in my new shop and get started again. It’s been a long 6 months!!! We plan on hanging my new heater and extra lights!!!

    Hope Splitbudaba (welcome back) doesn't mind me sticking my nose in here.

    I looked long and hard for a cup for my SW tach., this was sourced from VDO, got it many years ago so not sure of its current availability.
    It is 4&1/2" o.a.l.

    Thanks DDDenny, I ended up with an American Billet column mount tacho cup, it’s the old Borgeson pattern got it mocked up and looks good, glad to see things progressing Splitbudada, looking forward to some updates soon.
    Big news is that I have the coop booked in to the trim shop at the beginning April, I need to get it finished for June as my daughter wants me to take her to the church in it for her wedding day. No pressure then! Got lots to do before it goes in and will try and get some updates on here soon,
    Cheers
    Dave

    EDB10A7E-6C80-4C12-9DA6-4913E8CEAA49.jpeg Here’s a quick update, repro Deuce headlights all sorted, changed the front bumper brackets to stock length (it originally had shortened brackets which looked wrong in my opinion) and So-Cal spreader bar licence brackets, more to follow

    Car is looking good, I'd like to have a glass 33, 34 coupe body. I don't like snow but that is a beautiful pic of your house.

    As long as the Mrs. doesn't mind, it's definitely the way to go. What's going on the outside?

    You house looks great. I have a Hot Dawg propane hanging heater in my 1000 sq ft shop with 12'-6" ceilings and it works great. Doesn't seem to burn much fuel and I only turn it down to 50 at night and 70 during the day. I do have an aggressive ceiling fan to stir the air. Looking forward to seeing you finish your project.

    I am currently looking at bomber seats! They look the part but how comfortable are they in the real world??

    I did Walic bomber seats in a 32 roadster and they were very comfortable. I currently have a Walic bomber bench in my 32 pickup and it is also comfortable and I'm not even running a back pad. He is apparently not making them anymore. I recently bought a pair of the 445.00 dollar seats from irishpol on here. He runs an ad in the for sale section. I just got them Monday and they are well made and good looking. You mentioned a lift, I have the small 7000 lb. Bend Pak High Lift drive on lift in my shop and can easily raise even the deuce pickup high enough to walk upright underneath. I opted for the 110 volt pump so I didn't have rewire and it works good. I also like the air solenoids on the safety catches. Over all I would rate it a good lift. I was lucky after coming into the house one night all stoved up after spending the day on my knees and back working under a car my wife offered to buy me a lift. Great wife.

    I really like the seats from irishpol, will look into those! What foam or padding did you use in the pads? I have all the tools to make my own except the edge roll tool, plus 50 years fixing aircraft! Maybe the budget will push me in that direction! Thanks for the info! Oh yeah the lift info is much appreciated, I get the drawbacks of working off the floor! I would really like the ability to store 2 cars in one space!

    I used 3 inch firm foam with a 4 inch front roll for the cushion and 3/4 foam for the backrest. Considering I paid around a 1000.00 for the Walic seats irishpol's seats looked like a bargain?

    This weekends activity, I needed to tidy up the switch panel as it was a real mish-mash of switches, it’s got some nice So-Cal Art Deco switches but a couple of modern looking kit-car after market switches and the very odd horn push and main beam/dip switch intended for the classic car market. This is what it looked like:

    99B2BA86-BFC2-41E2-8E50-AACF79B78656.jpeg

    I bought some more So-Cal switches when I was at the LARoadsters non-Father’s day-Father’s Day Show last year. As the switches needed relocating I needed a cover plate so decided to try my hand at engine turning, so I made up a guide in MDF and did this:
    62F50FCF-A820-4DEC-B25C-923493175B22.jpeg
    It’ not perfect and I screwed up the last row but it won’t be seen so good enough, then cut to shape and trial fitted, just need to get another replacement switch as I broke one of the existing ones when removing as it was overtightened :(
    854B202B-AAC3-40F8-A759-905CB1DCA186.jpeg

    I’m pleased with the results and more in line with how I want it to look, I’ll post an update when complete.
