    then i started on the floor. it was channeled to the bottom of the frame but at six foot 200 + and no doors that was a pain. so i just put new floors in my dads 41 coup so i took the old one and did some measuring and the rust would be cut off if i used them. plus a pic of the old floor

    x2! That needs to be ground flushed and re-welded in one proper motion with a GMAW welding process. No flux. You hit a bump just right that whole front perch/linkage will go in all out hells dive as long as well as everyone looking at it. Not trying to be harsh stating the facts jack. Rather be alive then K.I.A.

  25. You really need to improve your welding skills before welding chassis and suspension. Other people use the streets too.

    ill admit it is a shitty weld do you really think id leave it like that no but thanks for your concerntrust me ill fix it
     
  27. I think you misunderstood. I'm not just referring to that one weld or that one part. You need to learn how to weld BEFORE you try to build and modify chassis and/or suspension components. I'm not trying to be an ass or to put you down, but that entire frame and rear suspension is junk even by rat rod standards. Learn some skills and start over.

    Sorry but he's right. You have a chance to re-do all that is wrong and judging from your fab skills you aren't capable of the welding or fabricating so do yourself a favor and take some welding classes and practice ALOT if you insist on welding up another suspension, or better yet, spend a little money and have someone capable to do it. It would be money well spent since it could be your life OR worse.....someone else's when it breaks.

    No-one I know fully welds a bracket or whatever part for mock-up

    don't sweat it, stick around.

    You said you'd fix the welds, and thats fine by me.


    You do have a good eye for style, as your pic of the new version sits dam nice and looks well proportioned. Have fun.
