wow, just amazing
Wow you sure are a talented metal shaper!!!!!!!!! I just bought a 39 ford standard coupe that's in similar condition, your build is very inspiring to say the least.
Been busy at work so car has been a bit slow,getting doors welded up and ready for skins
I just found this.............outstanding work, very inspiring. Subscribed
Love the door interior design.
Any pics to see how the door/dash area looks closed?
You sir,are the epitome of the poster "Devil with a Hammer...And Hell with a Torch!" I envy your talent! Bully! I say...Bully!!!
I was going to use solonoids and micro switches to operate the internal door handles,but if the alternater stopped working and battery went flat i would not be able to get out,so i have used accelerator cables bought on ebay to opperate the handles
I used a GMH roof to make a door skin and had to wheel it up a bit more ,this was before Christmas
Photo bucket wont let me post img
Made up some side panels and used 1/4 windows from a 39 sedan ,the sides are the second attempt
Your build is proof that anything can be accomplished with minimum tools and maximum brains!
Wow, what a great job. And i was thinking my 39 Merc coupe was in a bad state
Just put the img up without going through the [insert image] icon and it works
Had an accident in my tow truck in Jan.and been off work with two crushed vertebrea so limited to what i can do ,darned my sox ,sharpened all the neighbours drill bits,sharpened 15 hand saws then started making brackets for the rod,much to HAM BERS disgust.Started with some ally from the scrappy
Then got to work on the CNC machine to make exaust brackets
When we were building the 40 I straightened the deck lid and the front fenders some and thought I'd done something. This is an outstanding thread.
CnC machine in my workshop means cut n curse.Then out with the wood router and round the edges off
Fantastic work! Wish i had a fraction of your talent.....
Made some kick panels on the bead roller
Finally got the floors welded in
and the seat mount in
Great fabrication work here! Nice.
good work mate
I just read this thread from start to finish at 6:30 AM. INCREDIBLE! Thanks for the morning inspiration mercurymitch!
I did not have any window reveils so had to modify some dodge sedan ones.
Made these panels to support the trim in the rear.
And also made and welded the seat belt mounts in.
Mitch, your workmanship and dedication to the job really inspire me. You've obviously 'got over' the chemical poisoning. Good luck to you mate!
Made the rear seat riser
I also used a seat which needed the floor for support as the base is mainly foam
