  1. Finally got something off the mill now that I've started the manifold. I made some mistakes along the way and learned how fragile this part is after spending 3 1/2 hours yesterday making one and having it bend while machining it. Without sharing too much yet on the overall design, I really wanted the curvature that you see on the manifold "log" (as I call them) Some imagination and trial and error and I got 1 done to my liking. The drivers side "log" is bent as you can see from the pick and is junk, but I had to put it next to the other that turned out. cheers, tim some of the experiments in the foreground. a better view of the curvature I wanted to maintain the piece of brass is scrap that is supporting the log. I just wanted to be sure the dimensions were proper. I wanted to an "experimental" intake for the car in tune with the whole build theme. The manifold logs look like an injection style manifold but I came across several intake pics of the Autolite carbs that used a similar style. Not counting nuts and bolts, I think there will be 14 or 15 parts to it when completed.
  2. A lot of attention to detail Kurt......really shows. cheers, tim
  3. Thank you Lorne for the sentiment you've shared. I'm getting anxious to see all these beautiful sub-assemblies on the truck. Granted I'm sure not as much as you are, but it's certainly shaping up to be a gorgeous build. cheers, tim
  4. Charlie, I'm just sitting here scratchin' my head try to figure out how you do TWO involved large scale projects at once. You have brain reserves I can only dream of. btw, super nice work on this car too!! cheers, tim
  5. Thank you Chris but you really need to read my notes.........waiting on YOUR new build post sir...........hint-hint-hint............... Randy - wrong count sir.......150 total parts of the 2 carbs combined.........75 each....sorry to confuse! Sure seemed like 300 each though..... Too funny Bruce, and thanks once more for following along. Bob, also a big thanks.........regarding your comment, it's a sickness I think I have. I can't imagine anyone else would bother or take the time I put into these 2 carbs. Sometimes I get too far into the trees as they say. Charlie, having checked out and admired your work as well, I will certainly be looking forward to your Boss build as well. Cheers fellas!
  6. Charlie, I can just tell Charles you're having fun with this one and I've always been a big fan of Mustang fastbacks......Certainly appreciate the kind words too. cheers, tim
  7. That'll put a smile on anyone's face. Kudos to you Francis. cheers, tim
  8. Hey Eric, been far too long since I checked on your progress. Man have you been busy. Every time I see the title of this build "Advanced Custom Version" I chuckle as it's becoming more and more an understatement. The car is wickedly cool. Nice touch to add the LED lights as well. cheers, tim

  10. Thanks for sharing your pics John. These show ALL the detail you put into it. Nice. Now it's time to get back to work on the Monocoque Mustang Funny.............hint-hint..........
  11. Fun to check in on your progress. More please. Cheers, tim
  12. Thank you Jim. Hope you like the rest of it. cheers, tim
  13. Hi Francis, I like the update, they're going to really complement the carbs. Have you thought about possibly media blasting the bowls? You'd get a color & texture (cast) that looks like the fuel pump drive I did on the Bantam. If you're interested, send me a PM and I'll provide the media blast air brush and material I've used. It's not expensive either. Cheers, Tim
  14. Okay Bruce, now THAT one is one of my favorites now. The list is endless. cheers, tim
