Topic Review (Newest First)

    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

    Back soon

    Latest Update


    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

    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.

    Hello and welcome, lovely looking Model A.
  • 09-10-2018, 12:37
    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
