Looking great! You are farther along than I am. I need to start a thread for mine sometime.
Engine is a 6.0 out of...
+1. Pull the third member out and check it. I bet you find bad bearings and R&P damage.
While modern regulations have caused an increase in costs, most of the cost of a paint job is the prep work. Those $299 (used to be $99)jobs don't...
I like to think it's because it was the best looking Impala made. Followed by the '67. ;-)
Just found this thread. Love the '61!! I had a '61 Bel Air Bubble top in the early 80s. I wish I had it back. You got a great deal on the car,...

I painted my last car, FFR Cobra a Sherwin Williams "Deep Black". I've never seen a black that deep before. It kinda messed with your eyes. It was...
What is your opinion on custom cars with re-constructed titles? We change frames bodies and make our cars from many vehicles during a build. Many...
Just got done reading the whole thread and saw this one in a few places. PLEASE, DON"T DO IT!!!! I've seen too many ruined spindles from hacks...
I like the lowered headlights!
A couple of things that can mess you up with the Buick straight 8s. First the flywheel can be put on 180 degrees out. It will still run ok etc...
Love them Buicks! As far as seals on them old Buicks go..... "They are always leaking. If they're not its because they're out of oil."
Beautiful car! Love the section AND chop. can't wait to see it finished!
3m Auto Bedding and Glazing Compound is whats is needed for the rubber gasket windows. Don't use the urethane windshield sealant, it's for glue...
I'm liking this! It's got a pseudo fast back look to it. Are you going to take some of the hump out of the trunk lid?
Nice thing about the SBC is they run nice and cool. Usually a stock radiator will do fine, unless maybe you add a whole lot of HP goodies.
Amazing work and great eye for design!
Will something like this work for you?
They have 16" sizes available.
This is what HTH calls their "Torque Tube" Eliminator kit. [ATTACH]
I have the same issue with the '41 frame "X". The guys at Hot Rods to Hell say they cut it out and weld the trailing arm crossmember where it's...
Doing the homework and starting to gather parts for a tranny swap for the 41 Buick coupe. It is a Super with the 248 and front engine mounts. My...
Do you have any more info on this car? I have a 41 Super Sport Coupe and this is getting me all twitterpated and Donn Lowe's shop is just down the...
Beautiful work! It's one of the nicest Merc' profiles I've seen.
I've always liked a little rake to the front. Never have liked the tail dragging.
I'll be doing the same for my 49 Super. Watching for info.
WOW! That's looks amazing!
Love it! It looks great. Can't wait to here more about it.
Nice car! I like the old crusty ones too. I just came across an old picture of my uncle and his '49. My guess is the pic is from the 50s.
I looked up Weymann-style framing joints. I've never heard of that type of construction. I found this:...
Thanks guys! I have an order sent in to Bob's.
