EDIT: To jump to where I'm at now, go to Page 9; I'm doing something different and plan to get this L-6 concept done some other day. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/modified-lakester-build-preliminary.751582/page-9 __________________________________________________________________ I have parts, a body, & a title inbound. I'm jumping the gun a bit since the first round doesn't arrive until tonight but I've gotta do something to vent & share my excitement a little at least! This is going to be my first build. I'm low on experience as well as tools. I figure I'll figure out what I need as I encounter stopping points in the build. I've had the sense to get a compressor & a bunch of air tools and sockets at least. Otherwise, I've been focused on sheetmetal tools; so far I've got my hammers, dollies, shot bag, mallet, snips, & planishing hammer with plans for a shrinker/stretcher, bead roller, ring roller & eventually an english wheel. I plan to do a fair bit of body fabrication from this build and into all that follow. The basic plan for the Modified is to use a Model A frame and the front section of a Model T touring car & fabricate a new rear section to the body once I have my framing & rear suspension figured out. I'm also leaning toward using a hood, which I'll fabricate & at least take a stab at fabricating a grill shell once I decide on a front suspension layout. For drivetrain, I'm leaning towards a Ford 300 I6 mated to a T5. I'd sure like to add a quickchange rear & a supercharger to the mix as well. So there it is. Any suggestions?
