  2. Hey you always taking about being alittle on the broke wagon, maybe this is your calling, everyone is re popping speed parts in shitty third world cuntrees, and here you are in the greatest country hand making a very cool and wanted part/grill. So get that ass up and get to work soldier. Wyatt's grill works..... See I just named the company for ya a I will be a partner at 51%.:D Always remember, " The modest beginnings start with a single blow of the horn man!!! "
    Light bulb Bursttttttt!!!!!

  3. Grill is looking good! I agree with @paintslinger805 that there might be an opportunity there for you.

    Pretty sure my grill setup will be a money loosing procedure.
    For me I started with a hundred dollar original Henry insert that was missing most of the bars. The copper for the shutters since I got it from Menards is not officiant, I got it in 5' sections $6 so that's two slats in each section with a lot of scrap, wasteful, I think I used 10 pieces to get 16 shutters with a few screw ups. 8 should normally suffice when I have the hang of it. The stainless piece for the bezel is either 11.99 or 19.99, can't remember. I bought 4 now from multiple failed experiments. I forgot what the stainless middle tube cost, maybe 10 or 20 bucks. Then there's getting a old Pines Emblem off of a less desirable insert that can very.
    I was initially going to make mine stationary at a cool soft angle that show how each side turns in to the center.
    Now I'm looking at making it functional with a pull/push cable(maybe a Columbia 2spd rear control). I figure I need to shut them to achieve optimum terminal velocity at el' mirage and Muroc. Shutters shut will yield less surface tension after all. I think anyone buying one of these would insist on it functioning. Much more work.
    I also want to make @ct1932ford 's bars out of polished stainless instead of copper. I do not know what new complications this will bring.
    Sadly I would probably be sacrificing re-pop inserts to make these since I wouldn't even know where to begin making the outer trim ring/frame. The real Pines have a bulkier flatter shape to the trim pieces. I am making my middle pieces match the Henry insert ring/band size as best I can.
    I am concerned with stepping up the quality for Mark's and we'll see after that.
    Something I've learned through my short tenure in life. No one ever wants to pay me for effort and labor especially since I have never fully perfected any of my craft works.
    I'm not really interested in doing this as a small business idea. Normally I seem to be against cheap parts messing with the value of original ones. But the Pines Winterfront takes the cake for getting out of hand, $5,000-$10,000 complete pristine grill assembly, WTF! I have no quarrel with holding the 32 Ford in high regard but there has to be realistic limits on this stuff. I mean we're not talking Bugadi or Duisenberg here. Just good old cool plain and simple.
    Anyone who follows my rampant mouth shrapnel will know I am building mine cause I think they're the just the bees knees and I normally drive the broke wagon as Bruce says which is cool beans with me. Although my first band was called Power Wagon and we went for broke.

  5. Wyatt, I thought we were kidding!:oops: I would be honored, but don't feel obligated. If you are serious I would not want polished stainless . Plain steel painted black or original silver would be what I would do. Again I can't say how moved I am that you are considering it. :cool:Not like you have nothing better to do!:rolleyes: Please don't feel like you must. Thanks Mark

    No seriously, I'm making a lower bezel for you and a top. I'll see how that goes and then go from there. I can probably make a couple for you and Bruce and then I'll see. Maybe by then it will get easier and I'll figure out some efficiency concerns. I obviously don't want to dedicate too much time to this game but for the good guys that have done more than right by me here on the HAMB I'm persuadable.
    But remember my measuring stick, you have to be cool not oh wait that's me

    Hold up guys that's three on the waiting list. If this keeps up soon everyone will be looking for stock inserts again after my Pines Winterfront clones become mainstream homogenized traditional fodder. So boring. The guys on the Barn will hate me if the value of their originals comes down a grand or two.

    While searching for pics of 32-34PUs at the HAMB Drags and pipe dreaming. I came across this roadster.

    I don't know anything about it or its owner. I thought it had a mild Hubba Hubba vibe though. Notice the old chrome front suspension parts and drab overall tone.
    Sadly I can't go to this years event the wife says there's scheduling constraints. Hopefully I will make it to next years event preferably in my pickup but more likely my avatar

    I was given this old hub/brake drum puller today. It kinda cool. Super beefy and adjustable for multiple bolt centers.

    After watching a b-17("Aluminum Overcast" I think) flying over my house a few times the last couple days. I got a little emotionally motivated to fly off course.
    I picked up some supplies to make repairs to my second bomber seat belt to bring it closer in condition to my first.

    My momma just happens to be visiting to tomorrow so I asked if she could sort of darn the two big booboos. She is also going to flip around the routing of the webbing that I believe is incorrect and isn't like my other. While doing this she will replace the latches with my spares. Mostly because of the badly dried leather piece. Also the stitching was failing at the latch/buckle. So I purchased some close thread today. I also got some different fabric dyes to come up with a blend that can put about thirty or more years back into its appearance. I also wanted to better balance the pair as a set. I played with that some today with decent results.

    Thanks @corndog for the old chrome touch of class. Well it's not really old but it's not new either. "Old" sounds cooler? Going to make new upper mounts to accommodate the longer travel of these Gabriels. I have a image in my head I think that will look cool, not that you'll ever see in there. Using speed holes of course

    I'm thinking that if some bare footed dude, sitting in the dirt in some back alley in Pakistan using nothing but a file can make AK-47's , you can replicate your grill.
    I haven't been getting notifications of your thread lately, looks like I missed some stuff.
