Very Cool thank you for sharing
Don't wanna hijack the thread but do a quick elaboration on, I think episode one, where you Z's the frame on the little roadster. It looks like you used a section of frame with a couple radiused cuts and then you turned it like a perfect fit of a puzzle.....
Yeah the frame I was using was missing the rear crossmember and the one I found had some extra frame on it... so I used the extra frame to make the kick up with built in fish plates... it worked out neat.
I am not a fan of patina,especially fake patina. Usually because it is done so poorly and with the intent to fool people. The job you did on the body I like! It has both the right look for the era and style as well.
Very interested to see what the car turns out like.
Bob, you should do a "OTHRS" video on the Aceholes frame you build. Maybe even include some pics of builds that started with them.
Keep the " OLD TIMEY HOT ROD SHOW" coming!
Cool....I think it looked like a great fit!, looked more factory.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming!
Bleed is back! Love the videos. Need more please!
I'm in Thanks
the latest video is up.... this one is some thoughts on the magazine situation!
I close my eyes and keep seeing this skull with a red lightning bolt in it??
Good stuff. Very happy to see you making more videos
Hot rodders like my grandpa lived in the middle of hot rod nowhere. Magazines were his "pipe" into what was going on in the big world around him. He always said, "Those guys in California were so far ahead of us...."
Shoot, my buddy and joke that we literally learn to read in jr. high English class by carrying ATV magazine with is and reading them when we were supposed to be reading our assignment.
I'm sad that an era has come to an end but some day our cars won't be allowed on the road and they'll be relegated to a club track- no joke...
Bleed, start thinking about some sort of tech for one of the next episodes. We want to see some of those mad fabricator skills in action. Dang it, make some sparks fly and ruin a camera lens!
Keep up the good work....you know, there's a vacuum/void for traditional hot rod videos...any time someone posts ANYTHING hot rod related, people love it!
Vids like this take a little of the sting out of losing some magazines.
New Video! This week we discuss ultra rare "Bonar" heads and fire up this flathead!
I have a single BONAR head, do you know where I could find a match?
haha, I like it...good stuff.....
If those heads remain a BONAR for more than four hours please take them to the Doctor.
The 2-1 intakes don’t disperse fuel into a single intake runner very well. No wonder the heads are lasting too long.
Try some saltpeter in your gas.
So good lol
Man, those are rare heads! , always heard they were made in France.
