What are the front fenders from? I like them.

Rear fenders from a 42 Studebaker president 8. Hope I can make them fit.

Been a cold winter so far, so I'm trying to focus on little projects that I can do in my basement.
First a pair of hub caps, a couple years ago I made patterns to cast them, but never got around to pouring the castings, so I took a couple of pieces of cast aluminum tooling plate and turned them out on my lathe. (a little different design than the casting patterns I showed earlier) After that I cut the letters out of .090 aluminum and screwed them to the caps. I still have some polishing to do, then the letters will get painted cab color before final assembly.

Next, is a shifter/sculpture that includes switches that control the headlights and turn signals.
It is carved from laminated curly maple and cherry. Being a sentimental guy I chose these pieces of wood because the maple grew on my land, (before I owned it) and the cherry grew on the land I grew up on as a kid.

Lastly I dug the pedal castings (that I poured a couple years ago) out from under the bench and started cleaning them up. Had to do some file work in the checkering, so a sand blasting will be needed to get an even finish
The rough one will get the opposite "side fence" removed so you can move your foot from one to the other easily

All little projects, but something worthwhile that I can do when the garage is too cold to work in.

Steve, really nice work. You have a bunch more patience and talent than I do.

I cried because I had no shoes till I met a man who had no class.

Thanks guys, I guess I like to bury myself in tedious work. Then again, sometimes I envy the guy who builds his ride with a phone, a credit card, and UPS!:Whistling:
