    One thing's for sure -- working on a Hudson isn't like working on a Ford. When you need a piece, you can't just "order one up." ;)

    Here's a link to a Hudson website you might find helpful, there's a link to a rotisserie restoration with lots of pics. http://hudsonrestoration1948-54.com/index.html

    Wealth of knowledge! Good stuff. I used to be a regular on the HET board, but haven't frequented there for quite some time. I'll have to go back there, too.

    Cool thread, can't wait to see more....

    Fabricating parts for rust repair, Picture1102161621_1.jpg Picture1102161621_1 (1).jpg to this area of car, Picture1102161619_1.jpg Should look similar to this.

    After disassembly I realized the frame on this one was to far gone to fix, so l had to find another one.

    Are you absolutely sure the other one is better...? You're doing great on this one, and it'd be a shame for it never to be finished.

  17. Great build ,you're definitely on the right track. I can't remember the last time I saw a Hudson custom and yours is looking good so far. I applaud you sir,you've got to be pleased with the results to this point. Good luck with the rest of the build. Can't wait to see it finished.

    Great work, can't believe you are bringing one that far gone back. Nice to see.

    Still working on the project, not getting a lot of time on the car or the computer though, moved to a cabin in the woods with no internet. Hope to get to a picture session soon. I did trial fit a bumper on to locate the mounting brackets for welding. Picture0112171828_1.jpg

    Mo, thanks for posting, I do like reading about Night Train, glad that it has been put back out in some shows. I would really like to see that car in person some day.

    Before and after pictures of the rear frame rail. I originally wasn't planning on the piece on the outside, but I found out that the rocker extension bolts to it. Picture0805161930_1.jpg Picture0204171929_1.jpg Picture0204171947_1.jpg

    making some good progress for a change, finishing the rear frame gives me the go ahead on reinstalling the rear differential and getting this thing back on the ground. I will be repairing and installing the rockers next to help square up the frame, and then I can weld the coupe top on. Picture0222171722_1.jpg Picture0222171723_1.jpg

    Working on rockers and fender skirts, this will give the project a more finished look. Picture0222171719_1.jpg Picture0222171721_1.jpg
     
  27. Real cool project.
    I'm a big fan of old Hudsons, hope you'll finish it soon.
