Australian Design Rules require that our '28 Model A Roadster, like all road going vehicles, be fitted with mudguards. And apparently trying to argue that it looks cooler without guards doesn't wash should you get pulled over!
So to avoid having a fruitless discussion with the local constabulary, Adam fabricated this very neat set of guards. He has now passed them to Jamie who will now give them the same antique bare metal finish he gave the roadster body. So rather than detracting from the roadster's appearance, I am hoping they will blend in nicely and actually enhance the roadster's look.
We will see.
