07-25-2009 12:35 AM Column Bracket
Needed a way to mount the 1940 steering column to the 1932 dash. A 1940 steering column was a popular hot rod modification in the 1950's because it was the first year Fords came with a column shifter, rather than a floor shifter. Maybe a popular mod also cause it allowed your girlfriend to sit closer. ;~)

Built this spacer/defroster duct which spaces the dash back from the body bulkhead & allows for a defroster duct, which Henry Ford forgot to put in the car in 1932.

12-15-2008 08:33 AM New Floorboards
Last week my son and I took some measurements for the driveshaft and had an old one shortened, rebalanced, painted and new U-joints installed (no picture). After we installed it we started on making new floorboards.

We used birch plywood which has 11 plies and should be pretty strong. Next we need to make some mods to firewall, build a transmission hump and build toe boards.

12-15-2008 08:17 AM Working in the new shop
Building/moving/unpacking is over and I finally started working in the new shop. Decided to replace air compressor intake filter with a silencer/filter. It didn't just bolt up, so we had to make a little manifold with steel plate & a pipe elbow.

Surprising how much noise there is from the intake side of a compressor. It made a noticeable difference.
