    Is that a model 'a' rear?
    I like the curve of the kickup at the rear, i might have to copy that some day. That little kickout from your frame jig looks very handy, i can see a couple of those cropping up on mine.
    Not that we are being critical, but since you have now posted a build thread we expect you to pick up the pace a little. We have short attention spans and kinda go from one bright shiney object to the next - if you catch my drift.
    Happy Fathers' Day, oj

    This was my 1st idea for a gear shift and hand brake but thing change and i got rid of the small adjustable shifter and left the large valve handle as the the gear shifter. the tank strap latches came of a 90 year old soap press were i used to work they are solid brass and nickle plated.

    Started on the motor 99A merc sorry no pics of pull down motor was sitting in a shed for 20 od years with the heads off seized but dry and still full of oil. i taped the bolt holes in the heads and made some blocks to bolt to the head, clamped the head down and machined them flat, tuned the head over made a fly cutter and macined 10thou of the heads to just clean up.
    Motor will be stock for now untill i get the car up and running i have another block i will try and get a bit more power out of.
