Still loads to do,as you can see.Frame is TCI to which I've fitted a stock rear cross member.F100 front brakes and steering.Wheels are 4 and 4 1/2 x 16 early Ford with black wall Firestones.Front axle is Mor-Drop,rear is 8 inch.Repro Hallock screen and 10 gallon Moon tank for the bed.Motor is a '65 289,warmed over and blue-printed,with a t-10 4 speed.
Sweet ride Mark! Good luck with the build!!
Finally got time to do some work on the A today.I got the filled dash cut out so I could mock up the turned gauge panel which is mounted from behind(ooh err missus).I'm changing the layout of the gauges a little,by moving the two outer gauges down a touch to centralise them in the panel.Early Ford rims are back from the blasters just needing painted.
Hi and thanks,Charlie!
Recently been working on the steering box and mounting.I wanted to mount the F100 box through the frame but,as it 's a box section frame,a fair bit of work was involved.
First off,I trimmed and re-drilled the mounting flange of the steering box to ensure it fit inside the frame rail.
Next step was to fabricate a wedge plate,to mount box to frame.The bolt holes are slotted so I can adjust the column angle.The plate was then inserted in the outside face of the frame rail.An oval slot was then cut on the inside of the frame and the box fitted.
