    First thanks for all of your replies.
    They are cunifer, an alloy that consists of copper nickel and steel. They are very common here in europe. You need to double cone them in order to make them safe though, but if you do that, they are as safe as steel lines... unlike pure copper.!

  2. Yes, we have a nickle/copper line here, don't know if ours has steel in it also. I like to use it as it is very easy to bend and flare. ours does not look so much like copper, just has a little copper tint. Anyway, very nice car! Now get out and drive it.

    Cross members are pure 'textbook', front shaped tie bar is superb.
    Chop is so subtle (and well done) that some of our 'HAMB Sharpies' missed it!
    I knew it was chopped, but would have guessed only 1.5"-2"!
    Your Scandinavian critics have apparently not 'read the Book' on Biblical hot rod building.
    You have won it, in spades.

    Proof a mild chop corrects Fords proportion issue. Most people never notice a mild chop
    Ya did good

    Please dont throw my "scandinavian critics" under the bus! They are very knowledgeable! It's not that people tell me it's a peace of crap, it's a nice enough car. But there are so many very much nicer cars here, that this run off the mill primered traditional hot rod, just drowns. It's just that.

    But to me ofcourse, it represents a victory of sorts... It's not just any hot rod, it's MY hot rod.

    I began the cooper nickel lines about 2 years ago. Volvo has used it for DECADES!!! I never seen it become a problem. So I am sold on the material. Plus stainless steel that gets over 5/16" is a real PITA to work with. I have broken/ warrantied my Snap On benders and Flare Tools more than twice because of stainless steel.... LOL

    It shows that you learned well from everyone that had a hand in passing on their knowledge to you! Great looking hot rod you should be very proud of, drive the wheels off it and make a lot of people jealous of you.

    Model A’s are deceptive at times.
    I’ve been caught out the same way, I think that with the fenders off the proportions sometimes give the appearance of stock height.

    Thanks. No I dont have a build thread, but I do have a few pics from when I build the car. First, some pics of the chassis.

    The chassis is ofcourse model A, the rear end is a 34 ford, the k member is original 32 ford, the pedals are 33/34 ford, the trans is 39, and the engine is a 59ab.
    Everything thats not ford, is made by me. chassis1.jpeg 2014-08-22%2006.52.40.jpeg 2014-08-22%2006.52.56.jpeg 2014-08-22%2006.53.04.jpeg 2014-08-22%2006.53.59.jpeg 2014-08-22%2006.53.44.jpeg
