Lookin' good Clay! This car will need two wings (one front and one rear) to keep this thing planted on Mother Earth. LoL Keep at it.

Not much today. Dinky stuff. Setting up the intake. I had a nice magneto set up, drilled, painted, and with a mounting plate, but it wouldn't clear the intake. I got lucky and found another with a 45 ° angle in the engine salvage drawer.

Nice looking carbs. Are those a scrap yard find?

Those carbs (2 pieces each) and the manifold have been in the salvage forever.
I never thought they looked very cool. Friend of mine used some like them in a firewall to route heater hoses thru.

Looking good Clay! The service you got from that store is the kind of service that would keep me loyal customer.

Engine pretty much done. Front end just mocked on.
Going to use these headers. They're rough. The two halves don't line up real well, and I'll have to lenghten the pipes to get it out past the body. Might be a bit of a challenge.
Looks like I'll have to blacken the lower part of those nitreous bottles

I like those headers and the side pipes effect.

This was a fun day. The woody ended up in a brake fluid bath.
Meanwhile, I worked on the exhaust pipes, and if I'm gonna use the cycle fenders, they had to go thru some weight training. Thinned the leading/trailing edges and shaved down the 2X4 struts.

Going into the bath doesn't sound good. I'm liking the motor and those cycle guards look better.

I'm in the process of getting the front clip on the frame. I made some changes on the front of the frame to accomodate the radiator and shell.
Rigging up the steering system. Good thing I have the body handy for locating stuff, so I'm holding off trying paint it again.
One of my hangups, along with seeing alternators and generators just hanging off a belt, is a fat 3 scale inches or so of rim sticking out from the tire. I usually try to get those shaved down some.

I think I have the exhaust pipes dialed in, I had to make header plates for them. I can now try the body painting again.
I had sent a pic of my cobbled steering to Fotki yesterday morning. I think it went to China. Someone's gonna be dissapointed when they go for their vacation pictures. This was what was in MY Fotki in it's place.



I resent my photo this morning.

That's the way Fotki is and guess what they don't care. They want your money but give nothing in return.

I am liking the Model A. That engine really looks awesome. Nice work Clay.

That'll keep the front end from getting messed up for sure. Great work! Look perfect to me.

With the body in paint, not much going on. I don't know if they use these on carbourated engines, but they look cool.
So I managed to get out to the shop and install some flapnoids in the air scoop....Through that little slot on the bottom, I might add
