    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?

    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.

    Lookin' GOOD!

    Always room for one more. The "A" is the way, Brother! They made enough so we can all have a couple.

    The pedal ? There's plenty of room in the car. I put them on the trans hump normally.

    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.
     
  16. 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.

    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.
     
  21. looks great...really like the dash choice and the column....will be following along for sure

  22. 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?

    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

    For a minute I though you used a wheelbarrow for a firewall like Frank did on the 51 Plymouth. Looking good man!!
     
  30. Very nice work indeed! :)
