« Part 6: What do we call the back of the T-Bucket? Part 7 of Hot Rod FORDS series Part 8: I think the chassis is done.... »

We have a radiator…

Not an easy task but a lot of guess work and sanding have proved the deal….

I’ve been working on the chassis, securing the engine in place, the positioning of the rear wheels,
also the steering wheel, gear stick, and pedals….
The steering wheel is similar to that which Dutchy showed in his “how to”, though I’ve had difficulty finding a good range of timber button at the local large sewing shop.

Were I’m in a little trouble is the front wheels setup!
It’s causing me some issues as this is a play toy not a model.

It’s a play thing so needs to be heavy Duty so why not use some copper tubing and all thread like you had on it to start with.
It would roll like a,[let me think] Hot Rod, Smooth!!!

OOO!!!
Love that there radiator!!!
And it’s coming together nicely!
