    Nice! Another great example of how caddy lights add a certain something to a project. The build is great and you doing awesome. Thanks for posting. Kinda helps me with my project even though it is a much smaller build. LOL. Keep up the great work.
     
  2. The rounded bolt heads are a great solution, sorry i wasn't able to get the rivets to you in time, The old man does have them though if you want to get in touch with him.

    Looking good.

    Only thing is that all the rest of the 750,597 cars that have Caddy lights have '59 tail lights!

    Good to see some variation in taste!

    Don't take me wrong, '59 Caddy tail lights are just plain kool!

    Nice Ryan, Copper lines look so cool.

    I notice you don't have a Looped line between the Fuel Pump and where it would attach to the Fuel Hose coming from the Tank. This is usually done to take up any Flex and vibration between the motor and the fixed line on the Chassis. Have you considered this or accomodated this in any other way?
     
  11. cheers mate, yeah there is a flex connection in the k frame with an in line filter.:)

    Very nice looking roadster.
     
  24. cheers guys, i had a phaeton rear seat in it for the test drive that's why the doors are sticking out but man the feeling of driving it around on a sunny day with the family on board was overwhelming in a great way!!! and yes i will be running it without fenders and a full hood with cut outs for pipe clearance.
    cheers
