Roadster ain’t mine , it’s my neighbor Chenyboro Kid .
Looking better and better.
Picked this sedan crossmember hump up today at DECATUR TEXAS SWAP MEET today.
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.)
I blasted and painted rear crossmember cover yesterday. Then started straightening tailgate.
This rpu is great!! Gave me inspiration for mine.
Dang thats nice, you're a street rodder now !

I been slacking for 3 weeks, back in garage now , got the rest of body mount wood in, I’m pretty sure the swap meet wood kit was not for a RPU , but I trimmed and made it fit.
Turned this 5$ swap meet 2 1/2” column drop into a 6” column drop.
Noice mascot. Ouch!

Cool, I thought you were making an old time Beer bottle opener.
I built this stabilizer that will be welded inside of where I cut the bottom of gas tank out.
Was harder to achieve than I thought it would be.
Brookville Roadster took a nice bite out of my ASS NATIONAL today! I ordered seat riser , door sill brackets, & door sills.
This morning I lowered grill shell another 3/4” to correct the cowl - hood side gap. And then welded up all the holes in windshield stanchions.
To cheap to pay for $110 brackets.
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?
Lol, has a bad wire in it I guess, want work with out it.
What's with the nice new Avatar?

How Cool! Hotrods! And Nice piece of country property! No neighbors bitching about air tools sounding like dentist tools!
8 more years till retirement! Then we’re leaving Californication! and going to Oklahoma!
Nice Work Bro!
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.
I suspected something of the sort. Thought possibly you had a way to prevent that from happening or something. Carry on!
