The Final Piece!

Advertisements

As you may know the car came with a very poor quality hydraulic brake conversion, to rectify this I gathered the parts to convert the system to the superior 46-48 single adjuster system. I was however missing two grease boxes for the rear. Luckily I’ve managed to track down a pair on eBay from a nice gentleman called Al for a very reasonable cost. Hopefully these will be winging across the pond shortly!

Winter Project Home Made Blasting Cabinet, Spring Update :)

Advertisements

A bit of an update on the blast cabinet project started in the winter, stalled,and now nearly completed in the spring. We made the holes with a combination of hole cutters and the Dremel, decided to go with three for a bit of flexibility. The gloves are from eBay, taped in, but do the job! Air line goes in at the bottom corner, and the chimney is a piece of waste water pipe. Just need a filter for the chimney and we’ll give it a test. Not the most attractive thing you’ve ever seen but I think it will serve it’s purpose!

As I’ve got many horribly dirty and grimy parts on the A, I thought this looked a handy little project for the small parts (found in the magazine Practical Classics August 2014 edition)

I have all the items with the exception of the gloves, which I’ve ordered from eBay.

I’ll post some pictures once our version is in progress.

 

The Anti-Concours: 1918 Stutz Hot Rod

Advertisements
Sure wish I was at Pebble Beach right now… Back in 2011 Josh and I had the opportunity to attend many of the events that take place every August on the Monterey Peninsula. We sure had a great time. It seems that everyone else did too and they must have told all their friends about it. Hotel room prices have skyrocketed as a result so we will have to be content watching from a distance yet again this year. To honor all those fancy machines sitting on the manicured lawns this morning, I wanted to featured this 1918 Stutz. Now, this is not like any Stutz you are going to see at the concours. Some might call it a blasphemy, but I think it’s just plain cool. Find it here on eBay in Lansdale, Pennsylvania for $21,500 or best offer.
