Roadster Update

My friend John is restoring a Model A Roadster, I poped over the night to check on his progress.

The frame has been powder coated and a number of ancillaries have been refitted, it looks great , I’m very jealous!

He also had an old frame that he’s breaking for parts, the frame had a juice brake set up, so I am going to buy the front drums as they’ll match my 1948 setup on the Sport Coupe.
