    Looks like you have it nailed, good job. Have you considered doing an center x-member like a 33-34 Ford?

  11. Hey Dude, Your hard work has turned out a nice product. Congrats!!!
     
  12. So, are you going to be able to hit your initial price point? If so, I think you're going to be busy.

    The new frame looks great!

    bring a few frames out to the fathers day weekend L.A. Roadsters car show / swap meet, you wont find a bigger car show of model A`s and 32`s. plus see some other vendors who make frames? its worth a road trip. good luck

    You are on the right track. Don't assume the front to rear contour of the ASC rails is 100% correct. We always had to tweak them in our fixture to get the shape on the money. You need to check your front crossmember to see if it will fit a stock style radiator. Your project is looking good. I buy a fabbed rails from a company in Ohio and they are made the same way you are doing yours.

    I know others are going to disagree but I like the Pete and Jakes tubular style center section.

    There again going to differ from person to person and what trans is used. I prefer a traditional styled K member or X member but thats just me

    Go for it! When you get an order for 5,000 of them you better have a back up plan! haha just teasing ya. Good Luck! I know we told you to not paint them but now that you have the system down I wouldn't see any harm in cleaning a set up and painting them with red oxide primer for some pics to advertise with. I think they look great!

    Good job , you have come a long way in a short time . To bad you dont have a real or good fiberglass body to sit on it for show . Or , time to start your own 32 Ford build . Start a thread if you do and good luck wth the future .

    I am no expert by any means so if someone wants to chime in that would be great. would it be better to put the cross member in so that it lies undeneath the top plate of the frame rail. Stronger?? this is a pic I found not sure who's it is, but I think is maybe the norm for installing the Model A cross member. Not being critical of your work just a suggestion?

    exactly .perimeter for sure with 32 style front cross member and tube in the rear. i dont know but i think it would be pretty easy with the equipment at work to fab up a 33-34 style X member. for a little more. maybe another $200 more. i dont know, thinking maybee $1200 with the X member and $950 for perimeter.
