    Hi,
    Who out there in HAMB-land is using the Haze City stuff on a driving car and can give honest feedback on it? Thanks

    This ain't streetrodder .com.

    Get some old ford stuff and modify them.

    I wouldn't use anything manufactured by Haze City. Ron
     
  4. I guess, I was feeling more artsy/steampunky than street roddy. Must be a market for that kind of thing.

    Still thinking we're supposed to use old Ford parts to build hot rods.

    I never heard of Haze City so I can not offer an opinion. I do have a question though, you guys haven't noticed a lot of the "traditional" cars here running bolt on steering arms and narrow axles have you?

    I must be missing something. I just checked out their website and it all looks pretty traditional to me. It's definitely different, but I wouldn't peg it as streetroddy at all.
    And I guess if we're supposed to use old Ford parts to build hot rods, a lot of us ain't building hot rods.

    Why not? Do you have experience with their stuff?

    I've got to ask why just as Instant T did. While most of the pieces in their webside don't get me excited it seems they put a lot of effort in design and work in the product.
    The "it isn't my style" thing is fine as long as one just says "that isn't my style or I don't see it fitting in with a certain build style." We all get that. But if you know of failures of certain pieces we need to know that.

    You guys are correct, an explanation of my ire is deserved. No insult of Haze City quality was ever intended.
    Years ago I gave Bobby Walden promotional sets of our signature product. That being several sets of our Early Ford stainless steel brake adjuster kits. Bobby passed these on to Matt Bryant (Haze City) who made copies and now markets them.
    Our advantage is ours are supplied with stainless steel springs and are less expensive.
    The last picture shows Haze City's version. Appreciate the opportunity to vent. Ron

    That's a very fair explanation, and totally understandable.

    I am using the boxing plates and wishbone setup for my 30 build. I don't have any driving time on them but the quality of them look great to me.
