    Took this 3 window to Henry at Steadfast Mfg. The chassis is started and it's going to be a quick build, hopefully done by August.

  6. That chassis is a work of art! It would be a shame to cover it up...

    Make sure you survive the build and get to drive it. Hate to see it known as the four widow coupe.

    All I would suggest is that you do some of the work so you can take a little pride and ownership of your hot rod ,when your chatting the fellows up at the next cruise or car show.

    ^^^
    In todays world of hotrodding, the simple act of writing the check for the complete build is all that's required for pride of ownership. Besides, the working part has already been handled or the check would bounce.

    What the F...guys can’t you just be happy for someone and keep the snarky F-ing comments to your self’s. Not everyone has the time or talent to handle a build themselves, cut the high school lunchroom table crap.

    Should I rush your rush job or the rush job I was rushing when you rushed in?

    I don't see any difference in a Brookville or Fiberglass. They are BOTH reproduction. Not everyone has access to an ORIGINAL 32. Ford didn't make that many.

    You should expect some negative comments

    Quality results so far..does it have to be done by August?..I'd hate to see any quality suffer because of a certain time line.

    My thoughts were in the context of making him getting his hands dirty to feel more like a part of the build if he can. Nothing negative implied.

    How do we know it's fiberglass or Brookville from one distant photo?

    An assumption or did I miss something? I don't see where the owner spelled out the body/fender's origin.

    If a pro builder can't build and finish a quality, belly button, 32 Ford in 4 months, a reduction of 10% off the agreed price for every day it's late seems about fair. Every component for a 32 is available from somebody, somewhere. Poor planning, or a poor work ethic, has nothing to do with the customer, and said customer should not be forced to pay for the builders shortcomings.

    My statement was more of a general response, addressing the completion by a certain date issue with this/any build.
    I've seen where people..okay even "pro builders" rush their work with unfavorable results.
    The end result will be with you throughout the life of your ownership of the vehicle..a couple of extra days, weeks even will be long forgotten.
    As far as an efficient professional shop is concerned, naturally they should be able to "build and finish a quality, belly button, 32 Ford in 4 months", providing of course they devote their entire time solely on that particular build, rather than switching from one to another build in the shop, and putting out fires that can typically come up in the course of a day for any small business.

    I don't have the skills to do the work on this car. All I would do is eff it up and then pay twice as much to have it fixed. I'll be plenty proud to be the owner when Henry is done building the car and believe me eveyone will know just by looking at the car who the buider was.

    I busted my ass every day for 45 years as a laborer so I think I have earned the right to do whatever I want to with the money I have. If I want to help Henry earn a living building badass cars that's what I am going to do. If people don't like it that's to bad,

    It doesn't have to be done by August, just trying to have it done for Louisville. Quality will not be an issue.

    It's all Henry Ford steel. Nicest body and fenders I've ever seen. Zero patches anywhere. IMG952018071395213006777.jpg

    RJP.....I don't think this will look like the average "belly button" 32 when it is finished.

    I for one am envious, what’s better than a full fendered 32, 3 window coupe, my dream. look forward to the build!
