Last Saturday,Paso Robles, the neighboring town about 15 miles up the road had a Christmas lights parade. Scheduled to start @ 7:00 Peyam. I was expecting 35-45º . Winds sometimes get 10-20 MPH.
Says I, don't want to suffer. Have no water pump or no fuel pump to make a heater work. I took out the top floor board and built a 3/4" angle iron framework and covered it with 1/4" wire mesh to keep various objects from falling thru.
The weather was around 40º and the wind was lite & variable. we had a propane radiant heater to put on the floorboards while we were waiting for the parade to start, thank you Randy!!! The floorboard heater definitely made a difference while we were in the parade and on the road.
About 8 or 10 of the miles are unlighted 2 lane country roads, and this was the first time driving at nite out of town. The lights are useful for identifying an object just before I run over it.
There were maybe 18-20 antique autos in the parade, and we won 2nd prize for the category. WOW!!
I'm going to post multiple pictures. If they don't make it, i'll post them one at a time.
OK, I give up.
"The lights are useful for identifying an object just before I run over it."
Jim, that's the best description of Model T headlights I've ever heard!
I like the heater setup you made. Very clever! Can't help but wonder if the original owners did something similar or an early aftermarket accessory was available? Enjoy the winter driving.
I have an aftermarket accessory that lets air in in place of the firewall shield. I'll try to get a photo of it.
Dick; Dank u voor de vriendelijke woorden.
Graag gedaan, Jim....
Well; This will determine if I can follow the simple directions written by Art. It seems that enthusiasm has have exceeded my level of smarts many times. I can always blame it on age.
This is wider view of a similar of the one above
And from the other side
And with the lites on and no flash
