  1. Added a transmission to the big Ardun.
  2. Added the front engine support
  3. the original seats sere removed to be replaced by Grand National buckets with a sort of matching rear seat. The steering wheel will be a 3D printed item by 3D Model Specialties (Ron Olsen).
  4. The spare recess is filling up slowly.
  5. This will be a Continental with no continental spare.
  6. Enlarged the front wheel openings. It turns out that the new spring spacing puts one right where the molded in exhaust sits. So I removed some of it.
  7. The Ardun V12 which was on the dyno is going into a project. it was replaced by a custom nailhead with 6 Strombergs. The induction system is 3D printed by Chris Drysdale at Maple Leaf Model Works.
  8. This is likely better, however it looks like I'll have to enlarge the front wheel openings.
  9. Set the rear track. Now playing with the stance. Hind end too high?
  10. They said something about not being able to obtain the raw materials.
  11. Thank you so much. That's the one I had in mind but couldn't put a name to it. I ordered it today.
  12. Gravity colors appears to be temporarily out of business. Anywhere else someone can look for accurate color paints?
  13. And we know the engine will fit.
  14. Looked in the windshield drawer and there is one which might work.
  15. Looking over the stripped body, it would appear that this isn't its first restoration. It appears to have had the front pushed in and the windshield header was definitely broken once. It was repaired with home made "glass".
  16. The unpainting is progressing. One possible rear end needs wider spring spacing or, I could adapt a NASCAR rear end.
  17. There have been many Hot Rod Lincolns. Some lincolns with Lincoln or other engines, many Fords with Lincoln engines etc. My first one was a 1934 Ford with a Lincoln 430 with 6 Strombergs. This one will be a 1941 Zephyr with a fuel injected, Ardun V12. Mr.MacLeod will likely recognize the car.
  18. Cummins V903, Diesel V8, 903 cu.in./ 307 hp.
  19. A Cummins V903 has come in for a going over. it has been mounted on the hydraulic, self-levelling dolly.
  20. Absolutely. You build for yourself.Here are some of my figures. They are 3D printed from real people scans snd painted by me. They look OK from a distance.
  21. Watching and learning. Beautiful job.
  22. Not my best results but I still like it.
