Wide Five Wheel Adapters
Wide Five Wheel Widened 1"
Above are a couple of photos showing some items that were manufactured for a Ford woodie project. The aluminum "wide five" wheel adapters allow using the stock 1936-1939 Ford wheels on a modern Mustang II based suspension. The front of this particular car was running disc brakes so the adapter was offset over the hub allowing the wheels to remain in the stock location under the fender.
The wheels were also widened 1" to the inside to allow for running a slightly wider tire than stock, but also kept the stock appearance from the outside. The owner of this vehicle wanted the car to look stock, although it has a modern drivetrain and suspension.
Cobra Caliper Mounting Bracket
VW Dash Bezel Tool
Above are a couple of examples of items that we have designed and fabricated. The brake caliper mounting bracket was designed to mount high performance Wilwood calipers to a Jaguar rear end under an ERA Cobra replica.
The dash tool is for removing and installing bezels on early Volkswagons. Each end has a different configuation and size pins to fit various bezel rings. This allows removing and installing the dash bezels without scratching the paint on the dash.
