  1. Aligning all the details, body lines on the roof looks like fun!, haha keep up the good work. reminds me of the red one the Cavaliers did. Think it's Georges.

    Man, sure looks good. Makes me want to pull the fenders off mine.
    Like your shop too. Is it a new build?

    Going to weld the center of a model a front crossmember section on the the original so I can lower the front a few inches ,going to change the back end by replacing the rear crossmember with another model a cross member so I can run a buggy style leaf spring that way I can run a quick change rear end

  9. ^^^That's exactly what I did after pie-cutting the rear rails [no rear-mounted fuel tank for me] so they fit up against the trunk floor 34frameboxing.jpg . First time I got the model A cross member up too high in the frame rails which made the back of the car sit too low. Had to cut the spot welds and move the cross member down lower in the frame rails. Then the spring u-bolts hit the quick change. Turned the u-bolts around so the u-bolt nuts were on top for clearance..all OK now

    Good score on the hood. You always find great stuff at the Lonestar swap meet.
    I found a cherry pickup bed for my model a truck, along with tailgate and chains.
    Your chopped coupe looks mean.
