Looking great Tim.
Looking Killer!!!!!.both cars!
Subscribed...what a build !
Just found this and glad I did. Nice work!
Really nice job.... love the build.
Thanks guys. I haven't been working on it lately cause I've been playing with my T at the hotrod hill climb and the race of gentlemen.
But I'm back at it.
Today I pulled the intake and heads off the motor I have for it. I'm going to freshen it up with a mild cam and new valve springs. Contemplating on new heads too.
Been about a year since I last checked in....That thing looks amazing. Great job!
Lookin' good, Tim! MAN, that's getting close ta done!
How's it been going up there, Tim? Any updates?
H&H has my heads and cam. They are going to give me the Winfield 1A grind and releaving the heads for valve clearance. Block is prepped for re-install. Besides that, I need to continue final assembly on the frame.
About time you went back to work on this.......Just kidding. Looking good bud.
Cool beans! Thanks, Tim.
Wow-- very IMPRESSIVE build. Hard to believe thats the same rough body you started with. I'm already subscribed, just sitting back watching the magic happen. By the way could you take a minute to give an opinion or a story on a midwesterners take on the ROG? BILL RINALDI
A Family Affair , ..... well done Tim, well done.
Wow cool car.....they always take longer than you think.
Spent a little time in the garage yesterday. Mounted the battery box I made and made a list of everything I need to do before I put the body on for the last time. It's down to 6 things. All I need is time.
Hope things warm up a bit so you can get after it!
Made a headlight bar the other day. Used a '32 headlight bar and cut it down.
That drain pan has alot of metal debris in it... does it knock at all?
the headlight placement looks good Tim!
Very nice work
5w coupes rocks!
Well, actually it's whisper quiet...
I'm hoping it gets some rumble back with its fresh ground Winfield cam and worked over heads.
I pulled the motor and tranny this weekend as I decided to build a different trans for the car. Since I put 3.54 gears in it , I wanted a lower first gear so I'm building a 15/29 input /cluster trans. I think I will be happier with this set up.
how bout a pic with the headlight bar and the body on?
I would like that too. As soon as the chassis is done and the motor back in, I will get you that picture.
Looks boss! I'm running a winfield 1a variant in my T roadster engine too. I love it, sounds great, it really hauls the mail.
