One of the inspirations for this project. A Model A pickup with the same design BMW v8 & manual.

Found a clutch master & brake master pedal assembly from a sandrail, fitment is tight. To tight to the exhaust, I may be able to lower mounting and pull forward a bit. The back of the tapeline is the frontmost of the T cab.





Also had an idea for the headlights I wanted to try, I actually kind of dig it.



"Hey you"



"Yeah?"



"What are you staring at?"

"Uhh...nuthin"

I like that idea on the headlights, only drawback i see is what to do with the wiring to make it look clean.

I like it. Yeah the wiring might be a little hard to hide but it's doable

I agree...the wiring will be a challenge, but I'm sure you'll come up with a unique and tasteful way to deal with it.

I doubt road movement will cause lights to move enough to be a hazard to other drivers. I was more concerned about vibration wiping out bulb filaments. I'm gonna run with this for now, I dig it. I am considering two smaller fixed mount fog lights to the front crossmember too
