    SCORE! I just had to find one of those for my build too and it took a minute. It saves a lot of time not fabricating one or cutting on a sedan seat frame to get one of those.

    (FYI anybody else hurting for one, Mac's/Ecklers has them on clearance as of this writing.)

And then welded up all the holes in windshield stanchions.

  23. I’ve enjoyed following your thread. Please school me on the reason you taped a loop in the grinder cord where it exits the housing?

    That’s so cool! That’s the kind of stuff I do because I’m too cheap! Hey are those model a pick ups all riveted together? That sure makes it a lot easier to build parts and just grind off the heads! It looks like most of the support brackets for the bodies on those are all 90° angles and stuff too!
    That’s the only thing I don’t like about my 33’. everything is stamped and spot welded and weird curves and stuff makes it harder to fabricate.

  30. I suspected something of the sort. Thought possibly you had a way to prevent that from happening or something. Carry on!
