Default Rusty 47 Ford Reserection

Well I have been stalling so long about starting this thread I have about a year and a half worth of pics to post to get up to date. This began as a low buck beater that I could enjoy year round if I wanted to , that the ol lady could take anywhere and get it fixed if it broke , and my budjet is around $3000. Thus the S10 chassis planned for it, because I dont have the 3 grand or so to build a nice original chassis for it, I have other projects to spend money on their orig frames . I paid $400 for the car which had been pretty well picked clean by the previous owner , it has been sitting outside since 1980 ...so please dont tell me I ruined it by the use of the S10 frame, as I get caught up with the pics you will see how the original intention kinda veers off coarse ( haha bet that never happened to you eh!) now lets get on with some pics!

Heres where I started, in an unheated shop for the first winter dont need heat to cut and weld steel and theres more than enough rust to keep me busy for a while...you can see in the pics above the pass side rear fender had fallen off the car due to lottsa rust. Figured I might as sell patch up the front clip before I pulled it off.

With all the rust repair ahead I figured I should do a little customizing , then the front clip could come off for a while

The original center part of the floor is remarkably solid for something from around here...but the last owner took all the carpets out which helped alot I am sure, of coarse he left them in the trunk which had no back window so there wasnt much left of the trunk floor.

I stole 416Ford's idea for rocker panel repair that he used to fix his 46 more door , by using some 2x4 1/8th rect tubing, sure makes for a super strong body once it was all tied in.

I decided I wanted to be able to remove the rear fenders if need be so I began the oh so fun task of rebuilding the rotten quarter on the pass side.

Since I dont have any fancy metalworking tools I decided to repair in sections , usually I butt weld pretty well everything but decided to lap weld parts of these, with the 18 gauge it would have been easier to butt them...oh well there is always the other side to do!

With the quarter panel solid I could go back and make the running board / step area , I wanted it solid and welded to the body.

This work was from the winter of 09 ...I didnt work on it that summer but in the fall I got the donor S10 stripped down to the frame , spent a weekend grinding the ructy shit off it and the S10 body mounts and brought it to the Green Goblins to blast it then home to prime it, when I am done with the frame mods, mounts etc I will just have to spot blast the areas I worked on then it will be ready for paint. I made more than I paid for the S10 sellin parts off it, and I sold the orig Ford frame for 300 so at this point not counting welding supplies and steel I have $100 into it....

These pics are a bit out of sequence but I made a rear fender for the pass side outta 2 crappy ones and got it bolted up , did a bit of sandblasting and got some epoxy on the pass side, I also blasted the drivers side before I began to work on it.

I also repaired the inner part of the cowl (same as the other side) and tied the rocker panel tubing into it and repaired the rot on the outside bottom of the cowl.

Had to make a new flange on the fender so I could mount it to the car again.
