    from the pix it looks like you used a '28-'29 subfloor... tudor as the heavy rear crossrail has a L-R bow to it... the '30-'31 coupe has an almost flat one... don't bow your lower panel to match it... get the correct crossrail… sorry they are $300 new...

    It uses heat from friction......
    Here's a video, quality is a little poor, but you'll get the basics.

    Thanks. Lots of stuff got in the way. That's a real funny. Good friend diligently helping noticed oil running down the column. Of course he acknowledged on start up that the oil pressure was good, but the steering column was leaking oil. Had a hard time convincing him that the column had no oil and it was coming from the gage line directly above. We had a great laugh.
    Your ride is dynomite!!! Love watching it coming together. Love the yellow too.
    A great hobby.

    Thanks Aaron! I still have the quarter ends to install as well. I was a little long on the subframe, so I had to cut it down 3/4". I still need to square up the right rear corner. Onward and upward!
