Projects M/F-ing HOT RODS, '32 3W build for a HAMB member!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by ELpolacko, Aug 12, 2011.

  1. the pictures do not do this justice. You have to see it in person too see how bitch'n it is. This hot rod will be tops in the hot rod world when done. After seeing the car in person before disassembly is what made me go on the hunt for the 3 1/2 x 16 v860 wheels for the front after seeing them on the is car. Can't wait too see it back together.

    one of these days i've gotta find your shop to see where all this magic happens. the engineering on that crossmember is impressive enough, the fab skills to build it - now you're just showing off. that is gonna be one bad ass coupe.

  10. Big Daddy I think you miss understood. He's saying he likes it and is mostly likely commenting on the relative market of 32's....we all know they are way more money than anything else....

    Don't know what to say !!!!............. One Bad Mother Phucker !
  13. Great to see the quality progress, as mentioned earlier, great body profile, great chop, confident that it will have a great chassis with a driveline that will be a blast to drive.

    G'day Anthony, stoked for ya,

    Cheers, and keep that TIG cranking, and the build pic's coming, appreciate the effort,

    Awesome, Steve --- thanks for sharing this build with us!!

  15. I just about have the left front leg drawn, just need to verify a few angles before I blow it out and bend it. It will use the 39 pedal boss you see in the pictures and will attach to the frame at the same point where the stock K riveted to.

    As soon as I finish that section, I will post the progress.

  16. That is some gorgeous work. Nice Build. Love the little small block. That car is going to be a riot to drive.

    Beautiful workmanship.
  28. No drags for me, too much work and too little cash.

    Did add some of the legs to the front, just ate my lunch and going back to the plasma table to cut out the new pieces and check fitment.
