Great idea, using the slotted mounting plate for caster adjustment. And please tell Mr. Hume that this old panel beater will be feeling his pain when the time comes to cut that canopy for the w/s installation. :cheers: Jerry

Last two in this series. These were the new parts but I'll see if I can get better views.

We have a house guest from England for 9 days.

My postings may be infrequent. We are doing tourist trips, and they are not to Hume's.

Just hang with me and I'll add what I can.

Ryan, THANX.

It just may be that our guest will get to go to Hume's while she is here. It would be without her making the choice.

I need a fix also.

If so, I'll be reloaded.

Marlo intends to deliver the new front end to Hume's this coming week. I promised I'd be there when that happens.

Freud, Just curious if Marlo is going to run a double sheer steering arms or just the single arms that's on the front drive unit?  Thanks for the updates on the build. Its very inspirational.   :cheers:  Tony

I'll ask Marlo about the steering.

Thanks for the question.

maguronic....the reply about the steering directly from Marlo.

I've copied his reply.

We will just use a single arm on each side.  Slightly tougher than funny car style.  4130 metal.

I'll be gone for a week starting 5-17 but will try to post some images before then.

Marlo has installed new wheel studs and will try to deliver the drive assembly to Hume before this coming weekend.

If it's before 5-16, I'll be with him to do some images.

THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST.

" Doc, you are a hopeless romantic."

That was a quote from Cook Neilson , the editor of CYCLE MAGAZINE, years ago.

Tonight, I can not dispute that statement.

Today was a day of extreme emotion for me. I have seen this project from the beginning. I remember when I was satisfied to see the frame

when the welding was completed. I commented on what a huge step had been accomplished. That was 7 years ago.

Today, even though there is a tremendous amount of work yet to be done, I had a feeling of near closure. The canopy, with the

windshield area defined, is completed. The complex small section behind the canopy that contains the air brake, is nearing completion.

The panel immediately behind the air brake is being worked. Soon it will be ready to fit. When that is done, the LAST panel of the

body will be finished and fitted. It's rather like bringing home the wedding dress and the wedding is still months away.

As I drove away, in a downpour, all I could remember was the foto of the fitted side panels and the canopy. The canopy is a piece to

behold. It's a shame that any of it will be removed to allow the windshield to be fitted. It has the beauty of a naked female form. The

curves are without blemish and it's like a naked woman walking from the shower to the bed. The curves change with every step and

only emotion can define the sensation. Words are not adequate. I am overwhelmed and if it's possible I will convey those feelings to all

of you. I don't really feel adequate. It's been a long time coming and the alter is still a long ways away Believe me, I am overwhelmed.

One soft light portrait at a time.

FREUD

Freud,

Thanks for all of your time and effort to keep us up to date on the latest developments on Marlo's liner. Everything looks fantastic.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.
