  6. Neat looking build so far , question though - it looks like you have welded jamb nuts to your rear ladder bars ??


    Bars should be tapped and jam nut should not be welded .

    I think the Miller Jr. Streamliner ran one and I just was talking to an older gentleman about reversed banjo rearend quickies. I wanna know more like when guys began to run them. I wouldn't mind running on on my '33.
     
  13. Made from an original banjo center?

    That home-made quick-change is pretty killer! I think this is a strong contender for winning the next tech week.. Just saying.

    From a non hot rodder point of view this thing is awesome.
    It has all a real hot rod should have, killer home made parts, made from whats available, and inspired by the greats. Not that we can expect anything lesser from the Cheaters Gang.
