Sorry I haven't posted for a long time but I have had a few big issues with my Hot Rod which i will go into in more detail in a later post ( Gearbox related problems )
In this post, I want to show you some of the other work I have done to improve the Hot Rod
First I have replaced the old distributor cap and coil with a nice new Blue version
I have also fitted a neutral safety switch to the gear selector linkage and wired it in so you can now only start the engine in neutral or park
I have replaced the chrome number plate light with some new LED number plate bolts which gives a much cleaner look I think
Old Chrome type
New LED version
That's it for this post
looks very cool
Compare the old lower suspension arm with the new tubular lower suspension arm,
I have just got my Hot Rod home after having some work done on it,
New brake servo and pedal linkage
New top and bottom control arms
New bottom steering bracket and UJ
Plus a few other jobs
I still need to do a few things before I can take it for an MOT
But it's getting closer
New upper and lower control arms
Light buckets painted
budget tyres in gloucester will do it , i know its a bit out of bristol but allways took my 27t there no problem , rob the tester knows not to put locking rear axles on the rollers as well
My Model A pickup which had a mot when I purchased it has now ran out and I am looking for a tester who is happy to do an mot on a fenderless Hot Rod in the Bristol area.
if its the same one as i think it is, it was built by Russ Doyle and Tom Parry of Bespoke Auto Engineering
Hello and welcome, lovely looking Model A.
I was hoping to be able to contact the builder and find out more information about the parts used
Just incase I ever need to replace anything
I would also like to know what the colour code is as I am planning to make a hood for it
So if anyone can help
I will be very grateful
Welcome, and what a great looking Rod.
