    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.

    Hey,

    Great job on the ABomb, the power plant selection is especially
    killer, but what's the white stuff all over the ground, Bondo dust?

    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.

    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

    Agreed, everything about that car rules and your guts for working in the freezing cold.
    The engineering is to notch too. Very nice indeed.

    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.
