thanks Greg, recognise that front axle? I have an undrilled one I think I will use, but it has been great for mockup.
what's the transmission crossmember?
thanks General, the trans crossmember is 40's pickup.
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..
Keep up the great work! I love the car! I'm working on the same sorta deal.
That is what this HAMB is all about! Damn I love an A roadster.
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
Adam, your roadster looks great, have had some pics of it in my inspiration file for a while.
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.
sorry. double post
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
great build you´re doin´there.
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.
Looking good steve,keep it up buddy
Im loving this build. subscribed
