Very nice. (I really like my chevys.)
There is a guy here in Colorado selling the complete cowl from a 32 chevy including the windshield framing on craigs list. $85.00 if he still has it?

Great to see another Chevy build! I'm doing a '29 sedan. Future plans include a dropped axle, 327/th350 and a 9" rear. I just got some Wheel Vintiques 15" steelies with 6 lugs to fit my bias ply wide whites. Good luck with the build and keep us posted!

The windshield frame sounds good. I'm going to contact him. Jeff, I think horns are in a box, I will check.

The frame is getting prepped and ready for primer, I just need to finish some welding and mocking up the front end. At this point I wish I had spent the extra bucks and gout the I beam instead of the tube but money is tight so this is what I got. Its still cooler then the M-II front end that's for sure. I'm wanting to put a pointed cross bar on the rails up front so that's coming also. I had to heat and bend the beam tabs for the hairpins to align with the frame. I guess the ford frame rails are closer the the chevys. Its all fitting pretty god now.

Looks good Carl5Coupe! Good idea using the rear springs on the front, wish I thought of that. I'm working on a 1932 Chevy 5 window, also my first street rod. The guys here have been a GREAT help! You're moving right along, mine is going a little slower. Time and money are big problems. Keep posting! Jim

Thanks Jim, Im hard on the hunt for a rear today. Looking at the Chevy or GMC 4x4 rears. The rear I had in the car had water damage inside. When I opened it about a quart of water came out.

The frames has come along well. We primed the frame painted the front-end. I still have alot of welding to do and I want to put in a X brace. That will come after the motor and rear are installed so that I can what I have to work with.

I plan on doing some wood work but also plan on putting in a good bit of steel in the body. My dad has a wood shop in North Carlina, I was thinking about taking the car up there for a week and seeing how much we can replace and then replace the rest with 1x1 steel. Either way it looks like that will be the fun part. I like fabing up steel so after the frame and motor are in the body will be next. Some time later this spring to summer. If I run out of money the body will get started sooner since I have most of that laying around.

Dang that frame is looking good. Are you gonna have to or did you notch the underside of the frame where the transverse spring travels? The reason I ask is I had to put notches in both of my old chevy frames for clearance once the weight is on it.

Ghost, yeah I did notch the frame. Then I had a bunch of friends jump up and down on it to make sure I had clearance. Yours is looking good also. Looks like AC is on the list. So is this where you are now or is this something that was done a while back? Did you have to have a custom cut drag link made or did you make it your self? Im thinking about buying the two taps and doing it my self.

Its Sunday night and the wife Deb has helped me all weekend hunt down a new rear in the junk yards. So its time to clean up some old dirt track wheels I bought the other day and do a dry fit but first they need to be cleaned up. Now this is a good women. Get down and dirty baby. Hears another cold one.

Friends jumping on your frame that's what I did also. This is the 28 chevy that I sold but still building and it's this way as of now. Yeah ac was planned for this car all along, brake lines next then exhaust. The drag ling I ordered to size from speedway, but damned if I didn't order it too short, so I spliced it with a solid piece of steel on the inside and welded it back together, then for good measure I tapped a bolt into it.
To make it your self using a left and right tap you could do it, but it might be cheaper to just buy it unless your gonna do quite a few.

Drums or Disc? You may have some trouble the rear has disc in the rear. The brake specialist told me to run drums in the read with my front disc setup. But that was for manual breaks and a corvette master.
