  3. Nope! It's always been bare aluminum! The guy lives in Santa Margarita. He went to one of Ron Covell's panel banging workshops. Went out and bought all the tools, including a plenishing hammer and English Wheel. Took him years to craft this body. When he was done and put the car together, he sold all the tools.

    I discovered for some reason, even though I am still "watching", somehow the notifications part changes....its bloody weird .
    SO , If I don't see any bangers notifications for a few days , I log in and unwatch the current banger thread...then immediately "watch" it again , making sure I have changed the pop up panel from the default to " receive email notifications". Seems to work afterwards.

    Tachs are easy honest. There are a lot around I must have 20+ NOS mechanical ones
    I've brought them all over for years.

    Even have one for my Wife's Siata OHV equipped, supercharged Topolino Roadster
    I have a S/W winged 4500 in my 39GMC for 30 years. Came outta an aircraft and ever has a built-in engine hours counter

    Ask Want37 here on this tread.

    Just a sample........... siata tach.JPG smith big tach.jpg ac tach.jpg

    those are cool
     
  20. Funny enough, I mulled over following the shape radiator top all the way back and having a really pinched upper cowl. It is still very narrow, but, not as narrow as the Laurel-Roof cars.

     
  21. Front shot. Have some ideas on how I will get the bits all tucked in.

    Andrew....
    That car is a fake FRONTY lovely car if it ever gets a real motor.
    It's kicking round the US somewhere. I once knew it's story but it's been thru so many hands the story has changed over and over

    I like the "In case I get lost return me to" tag on the grill.......

    @edfueler looks like a lot of fun. I thought I got covered in mud at the dirt drags running twice right after the water truck. That doesn't compare to your mud. Haha.
