Got the roadster back together and pushed it outside. Still a long, long way to go.
i like it ! keep us posted.
Wow! It's a busy night on the interweb tonight. Great work Jim. Is all the aluminium staying raw?
Yes, yes and yes.
That looks killer.
Do you have a windscreen? What are your plans for a screen?
Cheers! will do, next update will probably be of the interior.
Thanks Pete! The aluminium will stay raw for now but eventually it will be all black.
Thanks! I do have posts and frame i need to sand blast them and paint em black. I also need a torneau made when I can afford it.
Looking good Jimmy. Gotta be happy with that!
Progress looks good Jimmy. It's really taking shape now.
Nice fab work, looks great. Could pass for the 40's builds.I like the Whippet grille.........
Very, very cool.
Wow that looks as if you found it in a building near Bonneville.....spot on job Jimmy.
Thank you all!!! I was going for the late 40s look, so cool people can pick it without me mentioning that was what I was aiming for
A look back at where it started.
still loving it, jim. can't wait to see that first drive video...
Looks fantastic (one of my favorite builds)- sent you a PM!
Awesome!!! Keep it going.
Are you going to be switching to the '35 Ford Wires as seen in the early pics?? Also where did you get those '36-'39 Caps that you have on the front right now?? I have never seen ones without any embossing on them.
Bitch'n. Please keep us updated.
great from every angle - inspiring work.
Now thats thinking with your dipstick " Jimmy " very nice!
way cool. i like the look and the inspiration!! you going to bring it over and take it for a test drive at bonneville ???
I feel cooler for having just looked at it.
Awesome progress keep it up, I cant wait to have my girl in rolling fashion
love it...thanks for posting...oh... and the inspiration shots..
Looks great, your doin us proud, keep it up.
Jeffrey James - the caps are Ford Pilot - English Ford 1948-51 from memory
aussie hot rods rock!
Thanks Jeffrey. I won't be running wires I do have '46 drums if I find some Ford high clearance wheels. I have 17" Chev high clearance wheels for the back but they need to be converted to 18"
I thought the caps were some type of accessory caps but BobbedT is probably right in regards to being Ford Pilot.
Kiwi Hot Rods rock too!!! Good traditional Hot Rods here are few and far between, we need more shows like Chopped that Ryan Ford organises.
Funny, I do want to take this to the US one day to drive to El Mirage and Bonneville.
Sensational, you nailed it! (Even looks just like you and me in the pic)
