I am impressed. Your build motivates me to get my '29 finished.
Builds like yours make the HAMB great, good job on the hood and everything else too.
I have learned a lot, thanks.
Looking real Good!
The hood adds a lot. Your'e almost home. About the only way to wreck it now is with some over the top paint job.
Cant get much better im thinkin
This car just keeps getting better,,, it's looking great! HRP
the only thing about this car I don't like , it's not mine
I don't like that either but I thought I was just nit picking.
looks great malcolm.nice job on the hood.you made it look easy.
Could be a few inches lower!!! HAHAHA
Man.. This is going to be a great year for the LSRU.
As you know I dig 28-9 Highboy Roadsters. The full hood IMO is
mandatory and really completes the overall look of the car.
To state you have no talent contradicts the facts. Great job
on the build. Bob
Are you leaving the hood raw aluminum for now?
I guess I could just wait and see
I hope your roadster is coming along well, Jordan!
A little work each day, whether it be 1/2 an hour or eight hours, and it'll eventually be done!
Thanks, Norm - Can't wait to see your coupe on the road!
Thanks, Tim - hope to see you at Bonneville in August!
Haha... wait 'til you see the shitty splash graphics I have planned
Well, thanks! --- Even without a dropped axle??
Thank you, Mr. HRP!
Haha.. well, I hope it will never have to be sold.
Thanks --- once I got started on it and kept at it, it really wasn't too bad. I think all of the research and planning how to do it really helped.
Haha! Like your roadster? It sure looks low!
Looking forward to it -- see you there!
Thanks, Bob. I've certainly had alot of help along the way.
For now, it'll stay raw aluminum. Whenever the car gets painted, I'll paint the hood.
Looks great,love the raw hood.
Today I helped my friend, Clint, make a tonneau cover. We used Sunbrella black canvas. Also, Larry dropped off the hood sides that he louvered. A couple more steps in the right direction!
Yesterday was also a big day. It's a long story, but with the help of Clint, Jason, Jim, and Lowell, we pulled the body off, engine/trans. out, engine/trans. apart, and replaced the flywheel and harmonic balancer. From a running car, start-to-finish, it took us five hours to rip the car apart and have it back together and running again.
I'm liken this !!!! EXCELENT job Nick
holy crap dude. that flywheel swap sounds like an epic day.
the car is looking killer.
Nick Malcolm Hoesing -
The tonneau and the louvered full hood are bitchin'!
Keep the updates coming!
5 hrs to pull a car apart and put it back together..................
Damn Nick your making the rest of us look like slackers.
The Car looks Awesome by the way
Thank you, Binga! The friends that helped have been around this car from the start, so it sure helped to have them there wrenching with me.
Here's another shot of the tonneau cover. The curve next to the driver matches the right side body curve.
O-la dude... Very nice build. Im doing a 31 coupe, so here is my q? Did you do a panhard on the front? FRONT SUSP/STEERING LOOKS ALOT LIKE WHAT I HAVE PLANNED, AND IM TRYING TO DECIDE...
Looks like you are ready to roadtrip...!!
WOW!!! Great Looking hood and hood sides. I the cover too, shit your whole car is awesome!!!!
I didn't end up installing a panhard bar on the front. Figured I'd drive it first to see if it needed one and it drives just fine without.
Yes! We got a little more snow this morning -- winter just won't go away! The forecast for the rest of the week looks pretty good, so I'll be able to put some miles on.... hopefully nothing major will need to be fixed.
Looks Killer Man!!!
Looking great Nick........I like the hood with sides
