I have been reading on the Hamb for a while (wow I can't believe the talent on here) . We bought a couple sedans off here and are starting our first Hot rod build You've inspired me . I've built stock cars and late 70's chevy pickups but this is my first rod. My 9 yr old son plans to drive it regularly when he turns 16, we are both having a good time with this build so far, he really gets involved. I have more pics to load. So far I purchased a pete and jakes frame and 4 inch drop front, with the extra parts I sold. The car came with a 9 inch with disc brakes and 4 link / coil over setup. The original frame was plated with a mustang front not usable. I wanted to build a frame but took the easy way out ( figure I have plenty to do without it) I have engine front end and rear tacked in place. Plan to chop it 3-4 inches providing I can fit, we channeled roughly 3.5 inches. The firewall was already cut( wish it wasn't). I am thinking of putting a flat firewall, and trimming back to right in front of the cowl band maybe an inch. I am also thinking of moving the body and rear end back 1 1/2 -2 inches? What is your thoughts ? any problems I'm not seeing? I am also back and forth on the electric fan, I like the looks of a mechanical but space is tight. The tires and wheels are mock up only, the front are the height I want back we plan on 2 inches taller 30 inches. We are not running fenders. Plan on a 32 grille shell ( I know it will look like all the rest and not quite welcome on here but we like the look and plan to drive the tires off of it) especially the back ones. I will take all the help I can get so please criticize.
