Coming along nicely!
Body is all buffed!
Here we go
HEY its lookin great. Are you able to sleep at night?...........................
Looks like you are going to get this on the road come spring.....Great car and glad to see it back.
Thanks guys, planning on taking it to Detroit and putting it in the basement with my brothers 555 Bellytank.
Rolled the car outside yesterday. Looks totally different in natural sunlight.
Lookin' good! Make that great.
Getting close! Any plans to head west with it any time soon? GNRS? LARS?
Planning on heading to LARS with it for 2016. If money and time allow it I would really like to drive it to Austin for the Round Up to but will have to see.
Chipping away on the roadster. Getting parts bolted on and need to wet sand and buff the doors. Everything seems to go together so much slower on final assembly but it is nice to know it's for good!
Love the color. Good pick!
Man.. Am I in love with this roadster! Those hood sides are just the right amount of funky.
Hope to see this at the Round-Up!
Awesome little roadster.
Got the doors wet sanded and buffed the passenger door. Bolted up the fuse panel and some other odds and ends. Hopefully can start wiring some this weekend. Having a Christmas party this weekend so I will have some other priorities to do that I'm pretty sure won't involve a hot rod. Oh well, that time of the year!
Buffed the drivers door and bolted it up. Got the latches in and set the car back on the ground.
Those gauges.. *swoon*
Thanks, need to figure out what I'm going to do with the insert and upper dash rail as far as color.
Rolled the roadster out and cleaned up the garage today. There is something I love about a 28-29 roadster with no windshield.
Whats the intake manifold on that?
A Weiand WC4D intake but I don't have bitching hood sides..
Oh, it looked like a 2 x 2 in that pic.
Been trying to button up about 15-20 loose ends on the roadster. Been getting alot of things done on the list but it seems I've been adding 3 items for every one item I finish. My brother came over today and we made alot of progress and the old car is starting to shape up. Hope everyone has a Happy New Year!
Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
My brother finished up assembling the grill shell and insert. Finally got the bypass hose worked out on the zip drive water pump and finished up some wiring.
Worked on fitting hood sides today.
