I've started adding to an old thread on here related to making a hinged half hood for my hot rod, if anybody is interested.

Great, I'm still not driving mine as yet, but the doors have been opened and closed numerous times during the build process and function without a hitch...
I am always on the lookout for feedback from folks who may use idea, since I figure there is always room for improvement, that I may have not picked up on.
Thanks RVW and I hope you are well and making progress thru your current situation.

Hey the fifty,
I still plan to implement that mechanism on my T when I can dig it and my tools out..

|fiftyv8||Anybody else have a go at making a similar door restrainer as yet???|

|fiftyv8||Time has come to move onto the bead roller project I feel.|

So cool. Could've used it on my 28 Coupe.

|Gearhead Poppa||AWESOME Very ingenious|

Probably not going to win any trophies but it is a very practical solution to an annoying problem for some folks out there.
I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I did and thanks for the encouraging comments.

Wow Mr. fiftyv8,
That turned out awesome. I like it so much I may just have to copy your idear!
I may play a bit with a small inertia reel seat belt retractor. I found an old toyota retractor that is pretty small but so far no time for play.
Ya done an excellent job sir I doff my Hat

Here is the finished install with trim roughly sitting in place.
I am happy with the outcome of this project and intend to use this mechanism on a future project.
Time to move onto my bead roller fabrication project.

Yes 1 inch shafts and 1/2" plate plus bracing with 1/2HP motor and huge reduction gearbox.
I also have an electronic speed controller, quick release top shaft setup whereby settings remain the same when releasing the top roller and 3/4" sideways slide on the top shaft.
Its taken some time to assemble all the components on a budget and now it is starting to all fall into place.
|08-27-2018 06:18 AM|
I hope you're using minimum 1" diameter shafts.
|08-27-2018 05:39 AM|
Thanks Pugsy, I still hope to load a video, but would like to get all my trim etc back in place.
Right now I have been distracted with another project.
I am building a powered bead roller from scratch.
I've been mindful of flex and want to be able to handle quite heavy gauge material so everything is heavy and big...
Maybe there is another thread coming later.

|123pugsy||That works great.|

The compression clamping device that holds the tail end of the seat belt material in place seems to work well, being strong enough and will allow me to readjust it should the material stretch in the future.
