some of the custom work done
although all the cars built here are works of art i am especially pleased with how a couple of the custom items i have built over the years have come out. the brass gauges in the above photo were made by hand, by me, in 1990. on the left is a fuel gauge, then an ammeter in a custom brass housing, then under the mixture is a pocket watch in another custom holder, then an oil gauge. the speedometer is a in another custom holder, then an oil gauge. the speedometer is a stock accessory. under the coil box you will see a gas pedal made out of my great-great-grandmothers piano.
above you will see the same oil gauge and to the left six custom brass gauge holders and to the left of that a lengthened steering column support.
this is the before...
when you cant find one to buy - you make it!
this was fun, i took stock brass handrail parts and made a custom intake manifold. under that is a custom brass valve cover with the ford script stamped in it. behind the cover is a stipe "laurel roof" camshaft, custom lifters, and a model a crankshaft."laurel roof" camshaft, custom lifters, and a model a crankshaft.
i was making my own spokes (see lathe duplicator in background) but found out it was cheaper to buy them all made rather than buy hickory and cut them them here.
