Rick,

 

Heavy sigh...  Yes, I see... You're right, you're absolutely right. :good:

 

And an Emott chassis with a 1/16" thick windowed drop arm to boot!  That must have been fun to make.  Historical fact, not nostalgia, dictates what was actually used.  Still...

 

I just like the Nutley style stamped drop arm better.  To me, it seems like a much "cleaner" design.

 

So, boys and girls and potential "vintage-syle" builders of all ages, there are two historically accurate and correct ways to build drop arms; stamped and built-up.  Both will work, take your choice!  :D

Mike,

 

That is an absolutely gorgeous "retro" chassis!   :man_in_love: 

 

Except for the guide tongue that is... :laugh2:

Professor motor has a bunch of guide tongues from Cobra just like that Parma piece Rick :)

Paul, the "Cobra" tongues you refer to are a different shape than the Parma that Rick T. showed.

They need to be modified quite a bit to make them fit a Jet Flag.
