Re: "Scarface" 54 BD panel build

I welded all morning. Doing small sections, moving around, and letting it cool to keep things from warping. The afternoon was spent on the lathe turning the O.D. of the center blocks(1.980"), and opening the I.D. of eight brass bushings(1.691"). To fit inside of the 2.250" x .120"...

Re: "Scarface" 54 BD panel build

Hose clamp a fuel hose to the cable input , fill it with wd40(not too much), hose clamp the other end of the hose to a air blower on shop air. Blow the wd40 up into the speedo head. Done it lots of times on old dried up stuff.

Re: Frame swapped 72' F-100

What are you talking about?!? Ford is the only vehicle to build a proper hot rod out of. Prewar/flathead era 1929-1951 I've kind of gotten into flathead fords over the last few years...I think because VW stuff has gotten so ridiculous, too expensive, too hard to find, too many people looking, too ma...

Re: Dans Boosted Oval Rag

Thanks dude.

I talked to Doug today about the ragtop install. He said something about being on vacations with his kids. I laughed.

Re: "Scarface" 54 BD panel build

This center pin housing required and bunch of work to fit and look this nice. Its the cool-guy early style that connects the beam tubes together. Notice the beetle caster shim on the top tube? They are spread open to fit the larger diameter bus beam tube, and mounted with 4mm screws. Screws make me ...

Re: Dans Boosted Oval Rag

Long day. I pushed to finish the entire ragtop mechanism assembly and install. Fully polished slider rails, new hardware, and buttery smooth adjustment. http://www.kustomcoachwerks.com/gallery3/var/albums/Type-1/Dans-Boosted-Oval-Rag/hfg%20%281%29.JPG?m=1487736558 http://www.kustomcoachwerks.com/gal...

Re: Dans Boosted Oval Rag

I have a drive-in dune buggy that needs some love today. I also have to get the tripple J's beam handled this week. I hope to get the ragtop mechs assembled and electrical finished.
