    Smile My Roadster

    This is my under construction project :

    Rodline 1932 Model B Roadster :

    Bodywork just after painting by Hershambob (Unfortunatly the red doesn't photograph very well - it's a lot darker than in the picture) :


    Chassis also painted by Hershambob (thanks Robert) :


    Update
    Brake and fuel lines now added (Thanks Mark)
    Engine and gearbox now in (Thanks for helping Martin)

    Hope to be out very early next year (2008)

    Ralph

    Looks good.

    I'm never going to complain about my lack of space again, I'll think myself lucky.

    Maybe a bit longer than that Mel - after buying a new set of valve whilst in Florida recently - got them home to find one box had one missing - so having to source one valve in this country......

    Still big list of "to do items" including wiring & interior.

    BTW the rear bobbed fenders fit a treat thanks Mel.

    Neat idea to put spare steering on the passenger side too .

    Keep going, not much longer now...... not as if it's not been a while already

    Chris
    Bumper sticker - This is an historic vehicle and only has three speeds....... if you don't like this one you sure as hell won't like the others.

    Thanks Chris
    Built for this country unlike you jetsetters with a rod on each side on the pond.

    Checked the dates - I've actually had the thing for just under 8 (eight) years now - hopefully this years Billing.
