Wednesday’s Words

I started working on the rear ladder bars today and needed some 7/8 x .156 DOM tubing. I headed over to IMS and searched the bins but they don’t carry that size. I told the lady that they should carry that size because it is used by most builders for radius rods, ladder bars, tie rods and drag links. She said they have never had a request for that size. She told me most people use the 1 x .120 for those items. I wasn’t convinced so I will search elsewhere tomorrow. A 5/8×18 tap goes in the 7/8 tubing and makes a nice tight thread. I know someone in the Valley must stock that size but I haven’t found them so far. I did pick up some more plate for the master cylinder mount and final boxing. I had to hurry back to meet the boys at Hooks for our Tuesday lunch.

I have a few artist concepts included in today’s blog as I think it’s and excellent idea to keep you and your builder on track with the build. I never have been in that class but I usually find a car I like and copy it with some personal touches. An artist can take your ideas and give you two or three concepts that you can work with. Several noted artist are available but I always loved the work that Thom Taylor did and am using one his sketches for my current roadster build.

With all the attention given to Deuces, I am hoping to attract some more builders to the Model 40 Ford. There have been a few AMBR winners in the past and I think that speaks highly for the 1933 and 1934 Ford roadsters.

Have a good week!

 

Stay Tooned!
