I just started to degrease the Franklin steering I plan to use in my Roadster. How did you determine were to mount the steering in the Coupe, drag link location, or crossshaft foot clearance?
Both. I put the steering box down as low as I could go while still keeping it high enough to work the pedals. I'm hoping that by getting it down to where the drag link's attachment point is as close to the radius rod's pivot point as possible, I'll be minimizing the potential for bump steer.
very kool! like the superamerica shifter!!
Birds-eye view of the flange I'm making for the new top insert.
Love the details. Nice bird's eye view too.

Louvers were punched by Kenneth Reierson in Cranfills Gap, TX.

unreal. bass you do amazing work.
Yes, that's the plan...it will be there in the raw. First time out of the shop and in public since it was a rolling chassis.
I'll also have new T-shirts at the Lonestar Roundup that Keith Weesner designed for me. They feature the Wade Coupe, so I guess I should post a pic:
I'm really stoked that I was able to get Keith to do the artwork for this...it turned out fantastic!
Holy amazing build, I am really impressed
Super excited to see progress back up and going, looks fantastic as ever.
Any chance on those not going to the round up to snag a T-shirt!??
Well, since you asked...Yes, you can now order the "Weesner/ Wade Coupe" T-shirt off of my website. Click the link below:
I just finished up the top insert flange yesterday, and the car is now ready for the insert to be Dzus fastened in place. Here are some pictures of the process of making the new flange:

Finally, here's a shot of the finished roof profile (minus the insert). I'm happy with how it came out.
Thanks again for all the good words, fellas.
looks great, car is a real inspiration
Your metal finishing is superb! Are you using a shriking wheel or mainly hammer and dolly?
I never get tired of looking at your work,,,,absolutely amazing. Earl
Bad ass hot rod.
WOW! That looks absolutely amazing, like everything you do.
You produce the most incredible, well thought out workmanship that I've ever seen, anywhere!
Welding's not too shabby either...
WOW that looks just mean.
This car is insanely badass.
