John... you are making some killer progress. I am digging that brake pedal. Is that a motorcycle chain?  ;) I am also digging the airbags you have put on it. I already can't wait until your next update. Keep up the great work Brother!

This looks very interesting !

Using the Renault kit for the basis of the Nash is a very interesting idea. i have the same kit and i would never have thought of that !

Can't wait to see this one finished.

I'll bet those engine mounts where fun to make and get even!

Are the air bags rubber O rings, John? Looking good.

John, I've always admired your talents and enjoyed your posts at another board I am on. Your posts seemed to slow down as the site's main interest is show rods. It's amazing the things you create, but mind blowing is the speed at which you build. I'm curious do you ever slow down ? You are truly an inspiration to not only me, but many others here as seen by the accolades of your friends.

 

Thanks for your time, and sharing your great models !

Jimmy
