Finished? next month? hahhahahaha uhhhhh maybe finished next project on it hahhahahhahaha
I swear never to complain about working in the cold again.....
The dash uses a 59 Chev center cluster, the rest of it is completely handformed by making a skin of 20 ga sheetmetal over top of a metal skeleton outta 3/16 round rod.
Great pics,awesome ride!!! Thanks for sharing many great ideas.I'll bet some of the more southern h.a.m.b. members won't agree about the mild weather outside your "igloo" look forward to updates. Merry Christmas to everyone in the h.a.m.b. family
I predict alot of fun ahead!
Great job on the ABomb, the power plant selection is especially
killer, but what's the white stuff all over the ground, Bondo dust?
Swankey devils C.C.
no kidding...I thought I made a mess in my garage....he got that white shit everywhere! Looks great...I really dig sedans and yours is looking like one of my favorites already!
Love the beltline......oh, and everything else also.
You are doing an excellent job! That is one of the coolest tudors I've ever seen. I wish mine was that far along. I'm sittng on my ass in front of the computer today because it's a little chilly in my shop. There's not even any snow on the ground. I'm such a puss.
Keep up the good work, and keep us posted!
Thanks guys, all the comments here really makes a guy wanna keep at it thats for sure. i will post more pics of the pedal assembly in a few days. I will have to pull out the engine to finish fitting some things and then i can snap some pics of how all the bell cranks work and such. Too tight in there to see it never mind get some pics of it at the moment.
That swing pedel assm. is way cool. Love the hole dam car. Bob
Just wait till i grind and detail that pedal assembly, I will be rounding off all edges and cleaning it up yet soon. Then it should look really good.
Holy Hell! This is, as of now, my new favorite build on this board.
Awesome work, thank you for the IMMENSE inspiration......
Lookin' good - I like everything about your car. I'm looking forward to updates.
Thanks for the pics and description!
thumbs up from a fellow brent. sweet car, love the pedals
Thanks for the awesome inspiration.
Sweet ass ride and i dig the hell out of the dash, motor and exhaust
good lord man!!!! just thinkin about grinding all the welding just made me queasey!! everything about that car is sick!!! unbelievable metel work! once again another hamber makes me realize how fat, lazy, and stupid i am!! i cabt wait to work on mine now. thanks for sharing..
ps if ya get a minute will you just wip me up one of those pedal assys
Neat details on the car dude!
Very sharp, man. Mind if I hit ya up for more pics of the swing pedal assy. I gotta do something similiar due to lack of legroom.
looks good!!=like the dash
Looks good man!
I like the row of carbs and the taillights. That is a good way to make your car stand out in the crowd!
I am not handy enough to make a pedal assembly like that....but I do have a credit card! Ha Ha Ha
Jus to make you feel bad, I worked in my garage all day yesterday, In my T shirt. Of course I had a little help from the furnace and my $1.50 a gallon LP gas!
Ok guys, just so you know... i DONT work outside all the time. I only was workin outside that day in the milder cold so that i could get the paint stripped off the roof without creating a huge orangey red mess in the garage all over everything... the garage IS heated where i work on the car hahaha
Damn man I'm in love with that car! Love the dash, tailights, the pedal assy, the motor..........so yeah pretty much all of it! Looks freagin sweet man!
Agreed, everything about that car rules and your guts for working in the freezing cold.
The engineering is to notch too. Very nice indeed.
Thanks again for all the positive comments. Always help keep a guy fired up for workin on his ride.
Also, I will post more pics of my brake set up here in a few days so anybody askin questions on here can get a better look at things then.
Dont remind me about the cold days in the garage here in Winnipeg. Car is looking good.
Hell there is good things to workin in the winter and havin snow... like you have more ambition to work on the car since you cant be out drivin it...and...uhhhhh, if you are cuttin metal with Dr.Torch you can toss the hot piece outside and in a few seconds its kooled... and you can practice your Drifting skills without needing high HP machines... hahaha
Got anymore pics of the pedal assembly/linkage? Great work!
Love that carb setup (not to mention the whole car). Great choice on the motor.
I love this thing. If I was building one- I'd use yours as a blueprint to follow.
Question- what sort of paint stripping media are you using? Is that a giant 3M pad or something?
Keep up the good work.
