Off to a nice start. Looking good so far.
Nice fabbing! Keep up the good work.
Yeah, it helps having a youngun around to do stuff. I have 300lbs of bolts that need to be sorted that has me wishing I had a kid running around!
What kind of dimpling setup did you use?
Way cool Scratch !
Nice start- red paint must have been on sale! My old coupe was painted the same way (red too- same guy?), but had NO prep done, and the paint was peeling off in sheets when I got it.
They must've had a little paint left over from doing some barns.
You're lookin good, I like the engine. Very nice.
Man i'm seriously gettin' the bug for a model a!!!
You guys on here are like a good "model a" bar tenders... "you want another?" Hell yes...
Always room for one more. The "A" is the way, Brother! They made enough so we can all have a couple.
very nice ......love the Hot Rod Lincoln theme......one question.....where are you going to put the foot feed...?
The pedal ? There's plenty of room in the car. I put them on the trans hump normally.
49 Lincoln dash cut down to fit. Found a 50 ford column to thrown in the mix
This is gonna be good!
Great looking start. Like the Lincoln engine.
That dash looks really good in there. Just curious, how heavy is the floor framing there - what thickness metal is it?
Looks like the floor is going under the framing?
It's box tubing the same pattern as the car frame with 11 gauge sandwiched and welded , between the car frame and the floor structure. It makes the body very stiff.
Like the way you let the firewall out on the top, cleaned up, it looks like it was always there!
Looking forward to your thread.
looks good skratch!
Looking Good!! That wouldn't be a F1 in the background?
No. It was a 46 dodge truck I put Scotts hot rod suspension all the way around and installed a cad mill.
Here's the new Rodsville quick change ( I had Logan Davis assemble for me ) with 36 bells and trailing arms , ford juice brakes.
Looks great fully assembled and painted.
looks great...really like the dash choice and the column....will be following along for sure
Interesting build to follow; really like the details, especially the dash. Out of curiosity; I was wondering why you used front brakes (no E-brake) on the quick-change?
Well this explains everything...
Incredible fab work, nice!!
Those were rears. I welded up the holes for looks of course.
I'm running a B&M hydro no need for an e brake
Split wish bone and 36 trailing arms
Holey mackerel! that is a lot of holes.....looks slick man
This is Detail City.. Wow!!
For a minute I though you used a wheelbarrow for a firewall like Frank did on the 51 Plymouth. Looking good man!!
Very nice work indeed!
