Very very nice job, keep on keepin on and soon she will be makin some noise............
Man I can't wait for the video of that beauty running
That makes two of us!
Wow .... Just WOW what an awesome build ! Absolutely Love the color
Great job on this build! Color is very nice and that dash is so cool to look at
Thanks! Its getting down to the wire now, just a ton of little things to do.
Got my floorboards stained and installed. Still have to make the covers for the master cylinder access and around the pedals and column. My buddy called me yesterday to tell me my seat was ready. Went picked it up. I used a bengels seat frame and he covered it in a black leather like vinyl. After the car is up and running ill drop it off for him to do the door panels and kick panels. Also got my tank, battery box, and fire extinguisher installed. Tomorrow ill finish running the fuel lines and make up the battery cables.
Your car is turning out great. It is motivating me to get to work on mine. I am currently building a 31 coupe but still have a long way to go. I hope my car turns out half as good as yours is. I live not that far from you up in St. Francisville. I had the 46 ford in my avatar that was also parked in the coliseum of the Roundup. .
Nice and clean, awesome!

Looking great Ryan! You’ll have to drive it over to see my car. I’m sure it’ll be done by the time our schedules let you get over here.

Got the seat installed today, ran the fuel lines from the tank to the pump. Still have to make the run from the pump to the carbs. Also got my seat belts installed. Hopefully ill finish up the fuel lines before i leave for work tomorrow
Dash looks great! Love them old brass knobs.

thanks! the brass knob is a dole fuel pressure pump. has a 1928 date code on it, neat piece
Every aspect of this build is top notch.
Super clean build indeed ...
Is there some secret I don't know on how to get your dash rail screws in without dicking up the paint on dash? Those were the most miserable things to get in.
Yep, paint the dash rail and dash bolted in the car.
THAT would do it!
Started wiring the car this weekend. Used all cloth covered wiring from Brillmans. They have a great selection and good prices. Also got the 32 column drop that i got from @louisb painted and rebuilt. it was broken at the column mount. I tig’d it back together with an iconel rod. I used a kit from thirdgen auto to rebuild it. Painted it with a single stage urethane. Got it mounted up, and installed my 39 banjo steering. My little one is ready for a rip around the block! Hopefully ill finish up the wiring this week.
Looks like someone is ready for a ride in daddy's roadster.
Awesome build! I have really enjoyed watching, looking forward to seeing the first rip around the block.
Looking good,I'm at about the same stage on my Model A,great feeling to see light at the end of the tunnel,,you gotta be pretty happy
Thanks for watching!
Well its alive!
Beautiful. Love the sound of a flathead.
