    Not Safe For Work.
    Normally means content is either "rude" or in the case of your threads will stop a person working for a long time whilst they drool over the quality of your workmanship :clapping:

    Steve with your build threads have you thought of expanding them a bit more into a book
    im sure you could do a Ebook and sell loads at shows with little trouble your work is always top notch
    all the best Ross

    If you're in work then read the 44 page original on the NSRA Forum. :D

    Its when I see a thread like this that I think one day I will build my own car. Its amazing how much work goes into the small details like brackets but that is what sets a good one apart from a crate.

    Been collecting the parts for the braking system hydrulics, I really like the old style look of brass fittings and copper pipe, obviously copper is a nono for brakes so I will substitute Kunifer (Cupro-Nickel) for that.
    I thought it would be easy to find all the fittings in brass but it appears a lot of them are not about, well not in imperial anyway, Anyway I found brass imperial 3/8" unf tee's easily enough, not so easy to find unf tube nuts though, anyway long story short I bought a selection of hexagon brass bar and popped into my mate Brians who just happens to have a small CNC setup, anyway poped back next day and he had produced me 50 x 3/8"UNF tube nuts [​IMG] Not only that but he copied the bleed screws that were in the cylinders too [​IMG]

    The other problem piece was I wanted to use thru the frame fittings so these too had to be made on the lathe, these were made from 3/4" hexagon brass bar, they were turned down to 9/16" and threaded 9/16" -18, nuts were made from the offcuts.

    Amazing work as usual, how you stay focused is beyond me! I love the "warts and all" photos showing the before and after of the finishing. The column mount looked lovely in black but the little finishers in the holes really add something.

    How many times while sitting eating or watching tv do you pop out and check an idea that you've had and then end up still there at 02:00am?

    I don't go back in the shop once I come out, all my designing is done in my head usually in the bath :laughing: I never write anything down or do drawings etc, I just shut my eyes and imagine what I want it to look like, then I go make it.
