I'm in lust!
THANKS for sharing PICS, Beautiful Masterpiece.
Update: So since I completed the Roadster this Spring I've been driving and enjoying it as much as i can. I drove out to Goodguys Columbus, about 400 miles one way, and didn't have any problems. Right now i have about 2800 miles on it. I recently made a wheel change and I'm liking the new look.
I like to know where you got the grill shell emblem made.
I think the pindrive wheels look great. Frank
I have the same wheel and tire combo on my black deuce roadster. Love it!
UH WOW Very nice build read the whole thread job well done loved all the little details!!!
For a fun winter project I made some caps that are held on with some stainless spring retainers for the knock offs instead of going the safety wire method.
I see everyone using safety wire on the knockoffs and now you made these retainers. Do the knockoffs work loose driving or is it just an appearance thing? I walk around the car every time I get gas (about every 200 miles) and give them a wack with the lead hammer and have never found them loose yet. Just asking.
I have a friend that runs the same type setup on his Cobra and if anything they get tighter as he drives. I figured it wouldn't hurt and it hides the the end of the hup nicely. They fit with just a couple of thousands of end play so after a long ride I can check them to see if they have play in them by hand and if they do I know the spiners have not backed of any.
Hi all. Been awhile since I last posted ,have done anything interesting to the roadster up till now. Last week I was playing with a different windshield setup and fabricated one that I can easily remove and put back on the Rodwell windshield.

Brooklands style !! Cool.
Nice! If you have leftovers from the upholstery you can fill in the gap under the Brooklands screen. Bob
That certainly is interesting. Beautiful job, as is the rest of the car.
