    Steering is now working, and I had this problem when turning left or right, the frame was moving in the same time, so instead of using a panhard bar system that is look ugly on the front end ,I decide to imagine something different and come with this...The screw that you can see in the Ibeam will be welded later...

    Can not remember where I saw it, but some one used a brass tongue and groove set up to limit front axle side movement. Perhaps the California Kid 34 coupe?

    The Busby Coupe has a 'tuning fork', similar to what you built.

    I really like the direction you're headed --- keep up the progress!!

    Hello Everyone

    Here is some little news

    I have finished my brake lines, master cylinders etc... and i'm working on the exhaust now...
    As you can see the original 1937 ford steering box was kept, so the exaust was a bit tricky to make... and here is what I have done...not really sure if I want to keep it...but will see with some times.
    Also I have swaped my rear tires from 700x16 to 750x16, and the stence with that rake is now what I was in mind.

    Hello Friends from the HAMB

    Here is some news...
    Steering is working
    Brake lines, master cylinders, pedals are in place
    Rear suspension and front end are working smoothly
    Just receive my Aluminium Chinese radiator, it fit perfectly and look beautiful cant bit the quality/price ratio...
    Hood/grille/radiator are in place for the mock up, have to shim everything to perfect fit but it seems good at the time.
    Gauge panel is in place and I like it!
    exhaust headers are done and painted black
