Projects My 36 ford project. Or how to ruin a perfectly good car

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by the man, Mar 30, 2014.

  1. I rebuilt the super T 10 transmission in my Bel Air, I only had to take it apart about 3 times during the process. Lot less parts on the bench than you have. Runs like a champ now.....Good luck!

    So aside from working my ass off at the daily grind multiple vacations tattoos fixing my daily driver and a impending motorcycle project. I have managed to get some things done. Finished my sway bar rebuilt my trans and shot a little paint.

    Man, you have been busy, that car is really going to be an eye popper when you're done. Great job.

  4. Oh I remember this. I did a lot of studying. It was really helpful. The best part about the hamb is the tech threads. Never would have gotten here with out them

    Still just plugging away. Hope to get the motor in the car permanently tomorrow. I would have liked to have had the body painted prior to assembly. but I don't think I'm going to paint anytime in the near future. Still some things I would like to clean up so for now it's going to stay in primer. It's amazing when you do a project this big no matter how much preparation and planning you do. There's still a ton of things you missed. you almost can't have enough nuts and bolts on hand

    Are those 265 exhaust headers or Fenton? I like them.
  7. I bought them on ebay. There new. I think they copied yblock manifolds and made them fit a Chevy. Never seen them before. They were like $150 if I remember

    The 39 guy

  9. 311019897457 ebay $110. I assume they are the same. Nice quality. The stainless ones would be killer

    So summer is over and I finally slowed down a bit at work. Time to get back on this thing. doing a little block sanding and priming today. I'm going to try to finalize my air cleaners. I got the motor permanently installed just about done hooking it up. Also did a little more practice for upholstery. I redid my welding chair.

  11. Hot diggity damn, da' man ....dat' looks good ! At first I thought where the heck is the jump seat going ? Then I saw the wheel, and chair outrigger. Looks like upholstery will soon get it's butt kicked. Kick ass welding chair sir.

    I work on this thing so much it tends to become a inanimate object. But every once in awhile it hits me that I own a 36 ford roadster. Pretty cool. One day I hope to actually drive this thing.

    That was the song "One piece at a time", multiple years of Caddy parts stolen from the factory and pieced together.

    So I just couldn't help myself. Had to stop and assemble my dash in the middle of block sanding.

  19. You'll be rolling in no time!
  20. Yes progress is happening. I'm still on body work mode. I hate sanding so I'm not making progress very quickly. I was looking for something to do for tech week. But kind of out of projects. I did get a little side tracked and made myself a New sandbag had hammer stand and a matching stool as well as metal shaping mallet. Also got my battery box finished. just need to mount it. I took some time away from the project to get my buddies wife's car going for her birthday. Was trying to side whether I'm going to louver my Hood or not.

    Dude your whole car is a tech week post. Did you forget it was a sedan?
  22. Actually sometimes I do forget. I'm almost a little pissed that I didn't keep better photo records to do a how-to for tech week. I'm really just not that photo guy. I usually forget to take pictures.

    So are you now admitting you are a Jedi master and this is is not the '36 sedan we are looking for....? lol
  24. Jedi? He's THE MAN.... Haven't you been paying attention to the work unfolding in front of your very eyes??
  25. Been a while since I have checked in on you.....Man this thing is KILLER. Great job and I sure would like to see it in person when done. How about driving it to KKOA event in Salina, Kansas when finished?
  26. Ya Kansas is on my todo list. I'm planning on driving it to Santa Maria California in May. If I ever finish it. I'm still plugging away at it currently working on my interior pieces. Door panels seat and so forth. Also made myself a new and improved overflow tank for tech week. Kind of on hiatus from my body work.

  27. Two years ago today I started this project. Sometimes I forget what I started with. And honestly I never would've made it this far if it wasn't for the hamb and everybody sharing their knowledge. Like most of us I spent a lot of time scouring all the tech threads and information. I think this website has been invaluable to most of us. Not only can you find the right way to do things but when you do something incorrectly there's always a bunch of guys that are happy to let you know. Thanks to all the guys who share their knowledge.

    Ok, can we get some details on the metal mallet? (length, width of striking face) and is that leather or wood on the striking face. Been kicking around the Idea of making my own as well, looking for some guidance.

  29. 3 in wide 7 in long with leather out of oak. It was all just scrap I had laying around. Works quite well. I think I will round up some scrap to make a larger one
