    A good friend of mine wanted to build a cool traditional 1936 ford pick. After searching awhile he found one craigslist. We blew it apart and sent it off to media blast. It had a lot more rust repair than we had expected. 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg 4.jpg 5.jpg 6.jpg 7.jpg 8.jpg 9.jpg

    Custom made panhard mount and frame gussets 12.jpg 13.jpg All the fenders where just a rough! More hammering... got to use the ewheel too 14.jpg 15.jpg 17.jpg 18.jpg 19.jpg 20.jpg 21.jpg 22.jpg After the fenders were close, it was time to bust out the lead. 23.jpg 24.jpg 25.jpg 26.jpg Flathead motor mount 27.jpg 28.jpg 29.jpg 30.jpg
    Time to start on the floor pans. Used my stepping dies to give some extra strength and good looks.

    Beautiful metal work esp. on the fenders! Kind of looks like a 35 with the wire wheels and such but can't see enough of the grill.
    Body and fenders same 35 and 36. Grill and hood and wheels (wide 5) on a 36 different.

  5. Hooray! You said 'traditional' AND you're using fenders! The suspension leaves me scratching my head though. o_O

    Nice saves on the sheetmetal.

    I wish I knew how to do half of the stuff some of you guys around here do with metal work. That is fantastic.
     
  9. Wow! That is looking great so far!
