Todays pic's CRAZY BRAKES.
Here's one more of the brakes.....Kinmonts very nice. is that spelled right?
This is how I spell them $$$$$$ LOL. Sorry I couldn't resist, they look killer by the way.
I am looking to have them restored if anyone knows anyone......
New shot of the work....Getting close to paint soon.
You know you've got class when your hot rod is being built in the same shop as a Ferrari.
Or mucho Dinero......
Scott: What style headlights and mounting brackets are you running? I always liked the bigger looking lights and want to use them on my 5w Coupe.
i love the reworked inner fenders that make room for the heads.
Ford Commercial lights and Rudy made the stands....I like them tight to the grill so you can't miss those heads.......
They were cut smoothed and shaped around the heads....The hood was made to be one piece with a pin release spring loaded post and nut. I am looking for some vintage shocks if anyone knows of any. I am trying to find some old "Velvet Ride" or anything that is better then just stock ones....
Man, I am loving this coupe, every part of this build is on the money! Thanks for a great thread...
i have a question. what are the plans for the radiator since the flatned front crossmember is now in the way of the water outlets??
will the radiator be sectioned ?
We are having the water inlet and outlet moved to allow for the lowered blower belt, thats why the cross member was done....
Looks great right here with the focus on those fantastic heads, lights & brakes. Raw and correct..
Still looking for some old vintage shocks if anyone knows anyone......And thanks for all the feedback on the i hope to show well at the Grand N.R.S....
This is the linkage for the pedal.....nos old time enderle brass injector arm's. Clean old school.
For some reason those Enderle arms makes sense to me....I mean it's not like YOU are going to grab the speedway catalog for anything on this car. Ardun, S.Co.T, Kinmonts??? You had me at hello.
You are correct sir......thank you very much, I have had "much fun" on this car during the build.
I'm always amazed that 2 97's is enough for blown Ardun. You'd think 3 would be what's needed for this thing but so many swear by the same setup you're running.
I'm itching so bad to get on my '33 but I'm just not ready yet. I have most of the parts but I know it's gonna be the small stuff that kicks my ass again on that car.
How about nos "STILKO" bee hive oil filter and nos dust cap covers.
The rear end is done and ready to mock up.....2 speed overdrive look close. The brakes are fit as well.....
stunning. An ardun, kinmont brakes a couple holy grails of hot rodding right there.
An amazing build.
Very nice. I like it.
I dug up some pic's from when we started the build......
holy crap on a stick. unbelievable stuff all on one car.
