  1. I still haven't worked the hitch mounting out for the car. Hopefully a neat and tidy solution can be found
  2. Fenders on. Had to narrow them to fit
  3. Fenders don't fit well. They are getting trimmed down to fit. I hate to cut up such old tin, but they aren't exactly in great shape anyways and don't belong to any car at the moment. Oh well. They will live on in the trailer for a long time
  4. Progress is being made. Fenders get mounted tomorrow
  5. Change engine and transmission. Leave the rear end. Easier to adapt the driveshaft and you can run your original wheels. Just don't beat it up too bad with all the power. Will need to fit a new pedal cluster as they all.mount to the clutch shaft (at least on the left hand drive they do)
  6. If you are driving a Tesla I will pay the gas no problem! It's nice but not in the budget. Thanks
  7. That is beautiful! How much to deliver to half way between Toronto and Niagara Falls in Canada?
  8. I can't believe so much time has passed since I started this project. Amazing how life gets in the way! Today I got the axle assembly and the wheels painted. The spokes are soaking up some linseed oil. They are original and very dry. Solid, but very dry. Here is to hoping they don't spontaneously combust! I still need to track down some inner tubes and mount my new-to-me tires. The bearings still look serviceable, so that's a bonus!
  9. I like the convex mirror idea. I agree they are great. Once mounted, I will see how these work. I may have to find some convex mirror heads I like. Dropped my mirror arms off at a friend's fab shop to have them built up a bit. I didn't really like how close the hinge pin holes were to the edge. He is going to TIG weld around the mount to build them up for me. He has made a few custom parts for me to go on the Dodge
  10. The mirrors came in today. They are very close to fitting over the hinge but just a bit too small to do it. There isn't much material I can grind off the mirrors, I might have to take a hair off the hinges. I will have to see when I have time to work at them properly. The pins they came with are also too narrow and the set screws are too close to the center, but this can be resolved. Cost too much to send them back and try again, they will work ok.
  11. These are what I have chosen. I don't like the chrome ones. They look cheap and tacky. I don't know if these are really any better, but they don't stand out as much. 7" arms with 5" mirrors. Of a 30-31 AA Ford
  12. Tie rod end press was the perfect size. The drivers side popped up and I finished it off with a punch. The passenger side, yah, not so easy. I had to press it out the whole way. A series of longer and longer M6 bolts were used with the press. Both are out now. There was zero wear to either pin. The drivers side can be reused if needed, the passenger side was pretty much destroyed
  13. This may fit over the pin head. Tie Rod end separator
