Thanks, I'd love to. Gorgeous car! We could share many stories.
It has a great look to it, nice stance !
Latest pic, with eyes and 62 Chevy valve covers. Working on hood hinge also.
Oh my ! all these glass cars coming out ! Looking great !
I always get asked is your 34 steel?.......my answer, you cant tell?
Man ! That car has got "The Look"
That's my goal as well.
Thanks, seems they are just as much work. I guess I'm better with fiberglass than a welder.
Latest update, have not gotten a thing accomplished. Managed to get my left thumb into a table saw, not to deep. But 15 stitches in 3/4 of an inch and you can see the kerf of the blade in my bone on the x-ray. Starting to get back some usage and feeling (weird sensations). Thank God I'm right handed. Order a bunch of parts. Anybody have any info on vacuum wiper motors that would bolt in on my UPAC header panel mounts?
Wiper should be electric. I've used the Mighty Mite a couple times. They're real slim and work well. A bit pricey, but I've used the cheap ones, with not such good luck.
Sweet ride Splitbudaba, but I gotsta know, what tires are you running in the rear? Those are some cool rollers.
Get healed up,that sounds like a bad accident.
Great project. Cut my left index finger badly on my last build. Took about a year to gain full movement back. Laid off from Northwest airlines back in 2003, haven't heard the word Aviall in a long time. I worked in the composite shop for a few years there. I'm waiting for someone to make a '32 in graphite!
Wicked set up..perfect Stance.. love it.
great project. I've been wanting to put a build of my roadster on here but was afraid of the feed back. but it seems you have been getting a bunch of positive so i just might do it. i hope you don't mind i added some pics.
nice hot rod. Hope you do a build thread
Great looking car, nice work. I also like the garage time as much as the driving.
Good luck, Ron.
Good to know, Thanks!
10.5 Radir Cheaters, I plan on grooving them myself.
Graphite 32 would be cool. I'm starting to get feeling at the tip and one side of my thumb. It's really hard to judge how much I'm squeezing when I pick something up. I'm going to work on the coupe this weekend.
Thanks, spent a lot of time working on that stance.
Love the pics. I was a little wary when I first posted. Didn't take long till I got some negativity. Responded "Too bad". We are hot rodders. Critics stay home!!!
Afraid of the opinion of a bunch of old car guys that you will likely never meet, a few basement dwellers that wouldn't know a wrench from a wiener or a moderator that might push the big red delete button? Have some faith brother, some of us will get it!
Or in the words of your name sake Bob;
Trust yourself to do the things that only you know best
Trust yourself to do what's right and not be second-guessed
Don't trust me to show you beauty
When beauty may only turn to rust
If you need somebody you can trust, trust yourself.
^^^^^^^ Well said!!
Thank you i will post a build thread of my car. Look for it in a day or two when I have a chance to write it. I started with 2 frame rails.
