I think you’d have to pour over my build thread to find out, however I suspect I know the answer to that one ;):D
I cut them out of 3/16” plate and welded them up.
12” high, safe and really handy.
Since I’m a welder/fabricator the building part of my 26 RPU was enjoyable and easy.
I dreaded the body and paint but once I got into it I...
I’m not going for perfect for anyone except me.
And believe me it won’t be perfect from some standards but I’m going to drive it and have as much...
I'd probably clean your shop if I visited ;):D
I think that if the bill for all the hours in this project were accurately calculated and invoiced we could call this the quarter million dollar 55 :D
Yes, but an old Hemi, a real Hemi not one of those modern fuel injected lumps they are calling Hemis :rolleyes: :D
I'll agree with the clean up and all the rest, a clean and tidy shop is a true joy.
There is one up I'd like some people to practice and that's...
Have fun guys I’ll be watching for pictures and waiting to see what the TShirts look like.
Waiting to see if there are any left over shirts in XL...
Ya he’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer or the brightest bulb in the shop is he :D:D
Looks like the camp grounds are pretty empty this time of year.

I'd look into regulations regarding registering a vehicle is a jurisdiction ( another state) where you don't actually live.

Parts truck. Junk everything except the body and start over with a chassis etc.
Besides that the ugly stuff on it is minimal.
It’s got a decent angle to the steering wheel and column too instead of the usual school bus wheel...
I feel like such a fan boy :D I really like the cars you build Jeff so I’ll have to take the time to read this whole thread and follow along.
:rolleyes: Great detective work there Sherlock :D:D
:rolleyes: Sorry Skippy there's no win there. And you shouldn't use the P word so freely either, it's nothing to be proud of :D:D
Mothers California Gold Carnuba . Great stuff.
So now we're expecting to see similar progress on your deuce ;) :D
o_O Were gas stations around when we started to drive ? :confused:
No, when some of us old farts started to drive there were no gas stations ;):D:D
I think you should probably think about something like I have to put my RPU on.
They’re 12” high and working underneath is relatively easy.
Wow I must really be Hot rod deprived this spring :D
I saw this driving down the road here this afternoon while I was doing a little parts...
Wow that’s too bad. That had to be an oh shit moment.
Hope the repair goes well.
Maybe you can find someone with a hoist you can use.
Saw this driving down the street this afternoon while I was out doing a little parts chasing.
