love where this is going, keep us posted, I'm in
Slow and boring, lol.
looks awesome! very amazing metalwork in that frame.
can't get much better than a hammered model A coupe.
Very cool! Nice job all the way around!!!
Took a day to build the rear sheet metal for the air compressor and battery. My plan for the car is to build a full polished aluminum interior and floor mixed with some leather on the bench seat, got my hands on a couple thousand copper pop rivets which is a nice accent to the aluminum.
Though the back tray doesn't look like much it took all day to make the pieces, drill the holes and rivet together. I'm really happy with the look but am kinda dreading the amount of work the interior is going to be after doing such a small section. Basically I have the back tray wrapped up, just need to polish it all. I'll be wrapping up the brake lines and bleeding the brakes and tagging down the air lines this week and putting the body back on, the firewall is completed and ready for paint.
Damb dude good work. Im doin all alum interior as well. Cant afford the leather
There is Lots of nice work you've done here. Pride in craftsmanship shows
That interior is gonna be bitchin!
Very nice Fab work!
I am so behind where I want to be on this build but managed to wrap up the chassis and get all the brake lines done and brakes bled this weekend, air lines are also finished, also got the last bits for my engine so wrapped that up as well. Transmission linkage is done and set and the firewall work is completed and am basically ready to throw the body back on and start the flooring. Hopefully if help pulls through I will have it back on the chassis this weekend and moving forward. Once I build the headers and modify the rad I can finally fire up that brand new 354!
Good deal man.
I'm lovin' this build.....
Needed to make a set of inner quarters for the A, I have a new repop original set but didn't want to cut them up for the channel so decided to make a set on the bead roller.
Painted the firewall
Body back on, now I can start on the floor skeleton and sheet metal.
Comin along nice man. This coupe iis bitchin!!!!
Motor looks crazy in there really nice.
You won't be able to see where your going. The carbs are in the way.
Just ran across your build thread here on the Hamb and saw your old '29 Tudor on page one. I said " I know that car". Just earlier in the day I saw your old '29 Tudor is for sale in Fort Mac, saw it on Kijiji. What a coincidence.
By the way great build and I'm subscribed.
You need to move that alternator some where else...
You've given this a lot of thought , I love it . That's great work .
Not my cup of coffee but really great craftsmanship!!
Wish i had your skills!!
Like where??, hahaha. Only kidding, I've tried to make it a lower mount but I just don't have the room so it's gotta go up top.
Move your alternator down under off the drive shaft
Lookin Good. nice stance
That would be my choice but I'm guessing even there is tight for room.
Look at a Kubota tractor or forklift or similar mini alternator.
It's tight everywhere in this car, the alternator will have to stay where it is. It's not my first choice either.
