Happy New Year! Project back on! (finally)

With the start of a new year in a new city, we're getting settled in nicely. The businesses are going good and we're going to ring in 2011 by cranking the 29A project back up. Not a full-scale ramp-up. I'm simply going to start procuring the parts I still need in hopes of collecting up all my parts now and putting it all together in the summer or next year.  I've been thinking a lot about the winshield and found a great reference shot of what I want to do. Tano T Roadster's Facebook provided the inspiration. The white roadster above is somewhere in Japan and belongs to one of his buds. It appears to be an extremely chopped stock A with the swivel still intact. I'm in the process of trying to find out more about this set-up. Other parts I'll need to source are: a 4" drop axle, radiator, dash, wiring harness, hinges for the trunk lid, and some kind of latch mechanism, a magneto, a finned aluminum timing chain cover, steering column, seat belts,  a headlight bar and tail lights, headers/pipes/baffles. I'll also need a new 9" carrier unit for my 9". That ought to keep me busy for a while.
