Under the Hood

Doing a little bit of under hood/bonnet painting before the weather gets too cold to get outside. Not exactly concours but looks a bit better. Much more left to do, but as you can see we’ve come quite a way!

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.

This time it’s a 1929 Tudor that was sat under a lean to for 25 years!

These pictures are from the previous owners in the States, hope to take some here in the UK soon

John’s Latest A

Popped over to see Mr Cochran’s latest acquisition and very nice it is too 🙂

Unusual but very attractive paint job, very nice interior with the exception of a little rodent damage. John has been doing some fairly extensive work on the engine which is now nearing completion. Looking forward to seeing it on the road!
