The decision to use aluminum was to prevent future cracking & the need for repairing/repainting the car annually.

Having shared what I experienced first hand, of course I'd appreciate anything you could share.

Thank you Bob!

Ps. When're you going to post updated pictures of yours in the other SB thread?
Jay I know the corners need fixing but it won't last if you put alum between fiberglass the metal works it's way loose, there is a type of epoxy that you should use,what you have done looks good for now , but it won't last, if it were me I would redo the whole works.
. but that's me.

If you want to know what it it is let me know.

Bob

Jay I will have my wife get it and I will get it to you. I would think you can get it at anyplace that fixes lots of vettes.

AS far as mine, I'm afraid I'm done working on car, my hands are too screwed up, can'feel anything. I will have to have someone else finish it. Not what I wanted, but that's the way it goes. will be there to guide who ever along so that it comes out the way I want it.

I will try to take pictures, but I am not big on it.

BOB

Jay IT wa my pleasure,I love helping younger Rodders, when they are building either glass or steel cars from the 30's I will jump to help.
Like I said don't cut corners and Don't get cheap at the end. If you go over budget go, but don't take it out on the car.


Give me a call anytime be glad to talk.

Bob

vacuum brake booster

i'm progressing slowly with my 34 SB cabriolet build. working on getting all the frame welding done before strip down, paint and rebuild prior to getting started on the body. i have an LS1/4L60E engine tranny. the engine position does not allow for a standard vacuum brake booster/master cylinder combo.
was looking at hydro boost but that is too long, i don't like the look. i found an import vacuum booster that's 3 1/2" deep that could work. my question is are the booster studs a standard? How do i find the specs on this booster to determine if it will provide enough assist? here is a link to my build progress on facebook.

thanks all for your input

Before:


After:


The headlamps once received from AutoLoc did not allow for much realignment, thus we had to build up the fender underneath the headlamp housing to accommodate for the headlamp setback. Pretty D@mn impressive fixing the flaw in broad daylight, huh?

I forgot to mention that we also cleaned up the fender radiuses (radii) as a friend on here pointed out that the molds in FL were poorly executed around each fender opening.











Cheers,
