    Hopefully after work today I'll be able to put the frame on and get some real work done

    Nice job, it always seems to take longer actually doing it then what your brain says thinks it will take.

    Just saw your Kreger engine mount, and thought I might post a picture of the one I just bought. Not 100% sure if it is exactly the same as yours, but here are some pics that might help you rebuild yours if it is the same or similar. Hope it helps. Keep up the good work.

    There is a small metal rod/wire about the same thickness as a paperclip that goes through the triangular piece to hold the rubber block in place. Hope these close up pictures help.

    I was having a big problem with the rear cross member and spring not lining up
    ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1420016168.542994.jpg

    Stupid me rushing and installed the front motor mount backwards.. Now you'll know the answer in anyone has this problem, took me awhile to figure it out

    After all that went over to another friends house and he helped me cut my stanchions for my windshield

    More work done these days off slowly but surely getting done haha

    The bones were hitting the frame since we kicked it up so I had to drop those aswell

    Cut them roughly 8 1/2" in
    ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1424970527.197012.jpg


    My buddy had a stock banjo rear with the torque tube on it so we were able to bolt it up instead of guessing
    ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1424970570.180405.jpg


    We used 3/4" round to drop them down just heated them up and bent them down approx the width of the
    Stock bone
    ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1424970636.580446.jpg


    All done

    Wanted to do 18's but settled with 17's gonna send them to get blasted and paint them antique white I'm thinking
    ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1428552413.509474.jpg


    Got the body bolted on.. Strangely enough the front body mounts didn't line up with the body holes so decided to chop off and redrill the body mounts so they would line up with the body... Possibly a truck frame??

    Don't know what this serial number is possibly aftermarket subrails at one time? Anyone know ?

    Still watching and i love the outcome!
    Strange number, doesn't look like the engine-number. Maybe a serial or production number for the body?

    Frame is of the last variety of model A frame, I'd guess. The body mount was relocated for the introduction of the slant windshield cars if I remember right, but was used for all body styles after it was introduced.
    Not very familiar with 30-31 stuff, but subrail stampings were used throughout production to identify body assembly plant and sequential production number. Check out Plucks Model A page for more information on that.

    I'm enjoying watching your progress...from the "other" Vancouver
     
  24. Great build! Always good to see another young guy doin it!
     
  25. Awesome work young buck! This is gonna be nice.
     
  26. Looks great mate! Except i have to say, please find another alternative to those rear wishbones because they look ridiculously unsafe..

    You could probably weld some mounts onto the rear end closer into the centre and move the front lug on the torque tube forwards.. or someone else might have an idea.

    ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1432180037.767055.jpg

    Next thing we tackled was doing the rear quarter panel right in the corner where the decklid sits both sides
