    Thanks Bubba, I wanted someone else to make that observation first, that's what came to my mind. I just wanted some company before I said it.
    I did something similar for sinking a well into a project floor for an e-brake handle.
    Bread pans to wheelbarrows......whatever works.
    Danny....
    Your build thread reminds me of a radio ad (I don't recall which one), it said,
    "We'll sell you the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge".

    I used the best bread pan I could find. $7.99 at the grocery store.

    They use that line for the motor cross where I live.

    Larry has enough information by now to build a dozen cars.

  9. That is a 1 lb. cake pan , you can also use them to make a mold if you have a glass car. Are you can just put nots and bolts in them.

    I have a few with nuts, bolts, odds and ends. Actually got the idea from my grandfather, who also left me a good portion of my nut and bolt collection.

    Car is looking great Danny.

    Danny--Have you thought about using two sided MDO for your front floorboard? I have done this for years, used Marine ply too. The paper backing on MDO takes paint really well, and it really does insulate the driving compartment. I tried to get a customer of mine to do that on his 32 Roadster with a hot 355 and Tremec, but he went with a steel floor. On the way back from Puyallup a couple of years ago, his feet got so hot he had them off the floor and actually had the drivers door open going down the freeway to let the hot air out.....And yes, I know that heaps of Dynamat, carpet and the rest will alleviate some of that, but still.......Just a thought.....

    My truck has a wood floor, but I wanted a steel floor in this one. Dynamat and carpet is all it needs to control the heat.

    Nice work. Do you have your own CNC machine or are you just that good with a manual machine?

    It's been a dream of mine for awhile. I've had my mill since 2010 and I got my lathe last year.

    Dear Mr Hot Rod Pro.
    Please make a not so good looking part for this car and show it here. It would make me and sure other guys here feel better.
    Thanks.
