Kids are the best helpers! My kids love being in the garage.
Dude, now that's bitchin'! Congrats on a major step in the process.
Got a little work done over the weekend.
Connected clutch linkage , mounted and plumbed the oil filter, finished the fuel line to the fire wall, installed the firewall insulator, test fitting grill and radiator to get it aligned for a hood.
I had some good help too.
Would like to get the dash in and start wiring next weekend.
Awesome job. One of my favorite build threads on the HAMB. You have some great helpers there!
Damn that is beautiful. You have some great helpers there Tim!
With ALL the great builds on here, that means a lot.
My helpers are pretty special, they have always been around my cars and projects. They get mad when they have to ride in mom's car.
Awesome Tim! And I've never seen Natalie so quiet!

Awesome shot of you guys.
Now that's a great Father's Day weekend activity. Congrats on having them around. Hope it stays that way for you.
So, what, it'll be done in a couple of weeks, right?
It needs to be done in the next couple weeks. I had next week off work to dedicate to the car, but plans just changed today. Gonna have to burn the midnight oil. Still trying for debut at the hill climb.
If you ever need any help you have my number man! I'm not much taller than Sam but the two of us combined we would be as tall as you!! Oh and my small hands come in handy!
your daughter's name tag says knucklehead...
Like the old saying says, "when the shoe fits, wear it...."
Actually it's a handme down from big brother, her name tag should say "Rosie" cause she is good with a hammer in bad places.
Cowl vent in. Firewall insulation in. Dash tunnel and gauges in. Door latch and window regulators rebuilt and in. Hood fitted and holes marked to drill holes in radiator.
Such a tasty dash.
You are making me look bad as I am not getting as much done on the 3 window as you are on the 5 window. But I am in that dam block sanding stage and nothing seems to be going very fast.
It is looking great Tim. Can't wait to see it at Platte City show this year.
I've been doing some wiring. Getting close to hitting the start button. Maybe one more weekend and it should be ready.
Man, that looks good. I like how you mounted the oil filter on the firewall, and showing off those nice Edmunds heads.
Errr, just a simple question. Now this is called T&A Flathead....
Does T&A stand for what keeps coming into my brain every time I see this header...
If you mean model T and A, yes. haha.
I also have my own tits and ass shirts.
Tim...Love the shirt, been working on getting something made up my self.
Gulp... Next thing I'll be wanting to order one...
I'll take one, Tim!
Got a little more work done this past weekend. Headlights work, turn signals work. Replacement re-prop sockets for 32 headlights are junk. The terminal that contacts the bulb are shit. They actually don't hold position and end up contacting the inside if the socket and ends up shorting to ground. That took me a while to figure out.
Had some good help this weekend prepping a few small parts for paint: gas pedal, column drop, taillight brackets, etc. Later that day, Sam painted what he prepped. His new nickname is Runs.
Looks great, awesome having your kids help, I have my son help me as much as possible. Good luck!
Making a little more progress.
The goal for Saturday is start up and the 1st drive!
This car rules man. Can't wait to see it on the road!
