Wheels on ZZ Top's Eliminator Coupe?

Greetings all,

I am curious if anyone here knows what the wheels are on Billy Gibbon's 33 Ford coupe known as the Eliminator.

Re: Interesting Video about Electrolysis

This is not for paint removal. This is for rust removal/conversion.

I did not do the video.

Interesting Video about Electrolysis

I have used this process to do etching in the past on pieces of reproduction medieval armor that I have made.

This is the best video on the process I...

Re: Steel alloys used?

I believe the shackles on these cars are forged. Any thoughts on what alloy was used on those?

Re: Warning: Don't try this at home kids.

I just finished unloading the car from the blazer and put a bunch of parts back in the blazer to take over to a friend's place for blasting. Once I have them cleaned up, they get primered and put...

Warning: Don't try this at home kids.

I was finally able to get down to my dad's place and pick up the '28 Business Coupe. My plan was to bring it back to my house in the back of my Blazer and I actually managed to get it done with no...

Bodywork, then primer, then paint.

Re: Rogue Valley A's

Actually, I wound up cutting the drums off the hubs and then the hubs off the axels. They were rusted solid and I have very serious doubts that a puller would have budged it.

Thanks though. If...

Rogue Valley A's

Hey guys,

I am down visiting from the Portland area and am wondering if anyone might have a rear wheel Hub puller?

Thanks

Re: aluminum fan

Original fans were stamped steel I believe. I could be wrong, but I suspect the aluminum fan you found is actually an aftermarket which is not a bad thing. :)

Re: aluminum fan

All the major Model A parts suppliers offer them in their catalogs. However, it would seem that lately, they are back-ordered. However, I could very well be wrong on this.

You might check with...

Re: 32 specifications?

Again, I am very well aware of the difficulty of the task. Rather, not so much the difficulty, because no panel is inherently difficult, but, rather, time consuming.

Re: 32 specifications?

Again, the project isn't about building a '32. It is about learning how to create all the different panels involved. We had to choose a vehicle to emulate and since he already has 3-Model A's and a...

Re: Paint Availability

Last I checked, PPG still offers Lacquer paint in their catalog. However, good luck finding a local paint store that stocks it. The Black enamel should be an instore stock item though.

Re: Fan question

The four-bladed fans I have seen come apart actually work-hardened and broke at the joint.

Fan+Radiator=Not a pretty picture.

Re: 32 specifications?

Sounds like a plan. ;)

I agree that plan A is definitely the way to go. I was just hoping that maybe there was a website that already had those drawings available. Oh well.

Re: Fan question

No. The four blade fan does not move more air and is much more prone to breakage than the aftermarket two-blade fans.

Also, they don't look right on these cars. Not as bad as the plastic crap I...

Re: Reinforcing Bands

When the time came to do the brakes on the '28, instead of screwing around with the bands, we simply replaced the drums with the modern replacements.

Brakes are like your back: It's really painful...
