    Baby steps. It's back on the ground for now. Working on getting the whole engine/transmission combo in place and level so I can build mounts.

    Engine is going to be mounted off of the front like a '32 and some later trucks. Plenty of room between front of the engine and crossmember so I can run just about as many v-belts as I care to stack there for the blower drive.

    ...also lost TV reception on the 12th.

    dude, i am speechless. i can FEEL it.
     
  7. great to see it evolving....awesome....

    that last side shot, love the flow and proportions, but...my mind wonders, would it look just that small percent meaner if it had a 'partial' channel (say tapered 2 1/2 front -1 3/4" @ rear)...?

    I realise space is premium, and maybe it's 'spot on' when you look at in the flesh, but something is teasing me, saying 'what if'?

    Cheers, and keep at it,

    Drewfus:)

    That looks awesome as a roller.

    Maybe you can buy a DVD player and watch episodes of I Love Lucy? :D
