Nice looking car - your airfilter box could do with a finisher ring on the inlet - something like this?

In the middle of doing this on mine right now.  First time for me too, and I tell you the pictures are a huge help.  Keep up the great work!  Subscribed to your thread, to keep an eye on your progress.

 

Thanks! Good luck with your carburetor rebuild! Come back and let me know how you get on.

 

Here is my update.  It is finished being rebuilt, just needs to be installed!  IMG_8912_zpsiqamlsdh.jpg

Super clean - how did you do it?  If you want to take it a stage further, sanding the marks out of the dashpot with wet'n'dry then polishing with a polishing wheel and compound on a drill will really finish it off.

Excellent work! They really do look great, what was the total time to complete?

Hard to say, considering I would put some time in here and there when I had time.  I don't think it would take that long honestly if you knew what you were doing and just went at it until it was done.
