    Default Oh No..another 29 Ford Rod

    Beer's is Back guy's
    Well kinda...ahahahaa
    I'm still a pretty busy guy, But I finally feel a bit creative.
    I'm going to whip up another of my favorites..Kinda like building a hilux or blazer..
    I can't build enough of them..hehehee

    Thinking a bit more modern...for the times.
    So gathering up some parts that's been around for quiet awhile..
    Plus the awesome running V8 Trinin2 built me.
    Here is currently where I'm at.


    My 3mm Sintra patterns..I had to enlarge them so their more in scale with the V8.

    And they make a pretty nice square box ...of sorts.

    Cowl will be vacuumed formed, and needs a bit more refinement.

    And a Jig and pattern board to keep things semi square and for measurements.


    Starting from the ground up, I dove into some brass for my chassis.. I love Brass.



    And a quick mock up of sorts to see how things are looking and fitting.
    It may just work...



    On to the starts of a front axle.
    I like the Hair Pin suspension, and tube Axle looks for this one.


    Going be like a 8 inch dropped axle. Get me some rake to it.

    Pretty rough..but the basics.

    And your now caught up to where I ended last night on the first front hair pin.


    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks generis.
    Ive been arm wrestling with it a little bit.
    But It's moving forward to say the least. At a snail's pace.
    Looking like this so far. Now on to completing the other side.



    Thanks for looking.

    Like they say a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work. Or something like that?
