    thanks Greg, recognise that front axle? I have an undrilled one I think I will use, but it has been great for mockup.

    thanks! Im running a T rear spring with reversed eyes, unsplit bones on 32 axle, even using the flex exhaust too haha! I started to do the wishbone mount like yours, but didn't finish it. I just want to see what other people have done and how you gusset it, and if if works..
     
  5. Keep up the great work! I love the car! I'm working on the same sorta deal.
     
  6. That is what this HAMB is all about! Damn I love an A roadster.:)
     
  7. Hey, yes I recognize that axle. Great to see. Your car is looking very cool. If I can help in any way please do not hesitate to contact me. I'm gathering parts for a new project - a Model A powered T tub

    Looking good champ! I've recently managed to free up some time (lol!) so can give you a hand to get it driving. It's the least I can do after all you guys have done for me.
    Cheers

  11. I just did mine and used 1932 2" chopped ford stanchions that are reproductions and then cut the shield frame to suit, I had a deluxe height screen to start with and it was exactly 2 inch chop to make it all work, really pleased with how it looks. JG

    hi KF,

    great build you´re doin´there.

    One hint/question:
    With your "highly" mounted steering box don´t you risk bump steer?
    Or is the pitman arm long enough?

    Will find out I guess, the draglink is at a good angle (almost parallel) & the box is mounted slightly further back than the stock model A box would be.
    I do have a couple of different pitman arm's I can try if I have problems.
     
  14. Looking good steve,keep it up buddy
