    So around Christmas time I recived a cowl and doors that were in rough shape. Around the same time I scored an A frame that is in pretty good shape. I want to build a little hot rod without breaking the bank. So far I have about $100 bucks into it for steel and supplies. I was going to make the back of it flat but after using the "search" button on here Ive learned the year of the cowl and doors. So a 31 didnt have a flat back so I opted to make it curved. Its been pretty fun so far and even got a little help from my youngest today.

    Thats awesome, so cool to start with almost nothing and build something.

    Nice build. Didn't you host the Michigan Inliners International guys last summer? Your garage looks familiar. If I didn't show you my home-built RPU then here is a pic of it now. Keep up the good work. It will be inline powered I hope.
