Projects The Wade Model A Coupe: Build Thread & Photo Journal

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Bass, Feb 20, 2009.

  1. Oh man... I had to go back and see what Bass was up too. So cool. Can't wait for some updates... this should be sick.

    Not sure why or how this all came about, but I'm guessing its gonna be good. Love this idea!
     
  2. Oh, I came in on this page and thought you cut the roof off your 29. I have to look closer before I speak.

    This Wade car is going to be sick, cant wait to see the 34 roof on it.

    Thanks for taking the time to put this up here. If a naked super model walked in front of me I would not lift my head from this thread, most likely would swat her away if she started licking my ear, that's how totally entrancing this is.

    You're on your own here dude. You could always find this thread in the archives, but a supermodel licking my ear would probably never happen again!

    I'm actually working on mounting the steering box right now. This summer here in Dallas was the hottest ever on record, and really kicked my ass. I've been playing catch-up for the past few weeks, and will finally have some progress to show here shortly.

    In the meantime, here's a fairly recent photo. If you look closely you can see that the firewall is nearly finished (it was a ton of work!).

    This has been a long, challenging project...and I'm finally starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel.

    I don't blame you.. Especially with everyone getting rain but us Texans.

    Good to see some progress though. I had been creeping your blog and web site anxiously looking for any hints of progress. Keep them coming!

    Fantastic! Looks great! What box did you use? Also, are the lower cowl patch panels '32 or is it just the angle of the picture? Been wondering how 32 panels would look on a Model A with a 32 Frame.

  26. Great to see you back Brian. You haven't posted much here in the past couple of months. It seems to have been a hot summer all over the country.
    That car (like all your cars) is perfection. Keep the videos coming!!

    JJ, that is actually true! I also wanted to do the cowl this way for the same reason Yakel's was done...so we could run a smooth 3pc. hood.

    I think it just plain looks cool, too.


    Steering box is Schroeder. Cowl patches are modified '32 patches from Brookville.

    Lucky guess! I've always loved that coupe. Some people get it some people won't but it'll definitely be a nice touch of tribute and a means to running that smooth hood.

    Keep it up!
