    Well, we finally got the Roadster moving under it's own power.As most of you know this is a great day! Still lots to do (minor things like headlights) and some carb gremlins to eradicate but very pleased for the most part.Thanks for looking,Bob

    I made the bumper out of a piece of thick walled stainless tubing.It is actually reputed to be a coffin roller out of the bed of a hearse.I got the ends somewhere online, i think form a commercial handrail place,and carfully tig welded them on and dressed the welds.I could post a close up if it helps.Bob

    Xx2 on the fenders. Some think that you have to remove the fenders to make a hot rod..............................NOT!!!

    Well i like them both ways but there is a Salmon colored 30/31 roadster in the Andy Southard book "Hot Rods of the 50's" that really appealed to me .That car was the inspiration for this build. Bob
