I saved the training wheels off Sally's bike 25 years ago for some reason. One bracket made a great stand-off for my temporary dash. I thought it would be easier to hook up the wiring as well as the starter and generator and get everything working before mounting the body.
Gotta love that gas tank too.
Now that's true Model T technology at work. My grandfather would love it!!!
Looks just like my 26 except the gas tank on mine came off a lawn boy. I think all model T er's have a little Macgyver in them, good job Richard
If you drive it around your yard sitting on an orange crate, remember orange crates will tip over .... I speak from experience ;o)
Yes how true that is Bud but the best way to do it is to set a mechanics creeper on the frame then set the crate on top of the creeper then run rope through the egg crate then tie it to the frame you will be less likely to tip over and less likely to burn yourself on the muffler when you fall back
Can you still find orange crates? Seems like all our oranges come in cardboard.
Not to worry. The testing is over and the body is in place now.
Thanks for the comments.
Nice work Rich
Rich, I would love to see your car with the creeper, orange crate, rope, and gasoline can on a tour. You can list it as a "period correct speedster"!
What did you use the other bracket and the wheels for?
The new cardboard "orange crates" soon become bucket seats.
