Great looking roadster John!  Thanks for posting the updated pics.

I really like the color combo. Not yours anymore, but you still have to be proud.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Thanks guys. I didn't have a part in the redo, but I will pass on your kudos to the new owner.
And yes I am really proud that he left most of my design as is.  He did make it his tho, and I like it.

I liked it better before. It's nice but not as nice.  :)

Me to, I think it had more personality or attitude.

It didn't need a loud paint job to get attention. I think two tone paint is for cars with tops and not some of them. of them.

You have to make it "your own".

This might be "just me"...but I noticed that if I had to bend any round or square tubing...positioning the "seam" on the inside of the arc made the bend easier.  The seam is the dark line on the tubing...that would be the thickest wall area...just seems to make sense keeping it inside the curve means it won't have to be stretched as compared to being on the outside  circumference?

EDNY,  The seam should be 90 deg to the former or arc. If it is on the inside it has to compress, on the outside it has to stretch. With square tube you usually have to "collapse" the inside anyway as the material has now where to go. (ie, it wont shrink. Cheers, Greg

After I made that post I was watching a car program on TV and they side to put the weld seam on the side(s) when forming.
