  1. Good progress Eric, looking forward to the finished product!

    1960 MGA Restoration

    hursst, be sure to post some pics of those new wire wheels when you get them unpacked. We like pictures of car jewelry. As far as welding tips........if your welder can be used for either flux core or solid wire with gas, switch to the solid wire welding. It works much better on sheet metal in my opinion. The downside is that the surfaces must be clean, but usually that's not too much more work.

    F/S '32 Hupp -- C/L Michigan

    Hupp, that's because this thread is almost three years old................... I've done the same thing before, wonder why a link won't work then figure out it's a thread that has been dredged up from the dusty past.

    Jeff, congrats on getting the car running and driving! I've been working so much lately that my time on the forum has been minimal so just saw that it's running. Car looks good just like it is -- if it were mine I'd have a hard time tearing it back down for finish cosmetics because I'd be driving the wheels off it! Hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a safe New Years Day!

    Keep up the great work Martin. The paint looks great, and I second what Luv2Wrench said........that is a great color.

    Speedster Body FOR SALE

    Wow, a lot of work in that, to build the inner structure and then form the body panels. Thanks for the reply Charles.

    Speedster Body FOR SALE

    What material was used to make the body? Is there an inner structure, and if so, what is that material?

    Disgruntled buyer

    Totally agree!
  9. Cute Jeep Dale. It's a CJ-5, right?
  10. Dale, when you are done it will probably be a lot slicker and straighter than when it came from the factory!
  11. Neat video! Did you already know the rear axle.needed to be rebuilt? Or did you just figure it out on the short test drive?

    New yorker 1955 choke

    Once again, what Jack said. ? In the old days, parts stores had choke tube replacement kits available that did essentially the same thing Jack is suggesting.

    New yorker 1955 choke

    As Jack says, the riser tube has a hole in it where exhaust is getting in. I"ve had this happen on other makes. Either do what Jack suggests, or...........disconnect at the carb, put your finger over the one end and blow air in the other end and you should be able to tell if there is a 'hidden' hole in the tube.
