    Hi -
    I have a 28 tudor that I'd like to put on a 32 frame. Unfortunately I have no welding skills, so my question is: which aftermarket company makes a good pinched 32 frame for my body. Would like any experience you've had and possibly pictures? Also when you build one of these, do you need a shortened or standard deuce shell? Thanks in advance.

    What you really need is some welding skills to do that. Blackboard cutoms builds very nice and affordable frame. Hes also a great guy.
  3. Hey barn hunter,

    Give Gary a call at black board hot rods. He does great work and is cheaper then the rest, the only thing that will kill the price is the shipping. And for a 28/29 ford you will need a shorter 32 grille shell.

    I am in the process of mounting my 29 sedan on a 32 chassis at the moment.I checked out a lot of chassis setups and ended up with a Kiwi Konnection chassis.Am very happy with it and it has a combination of Socal parts and Pete and Jakes.You do have various options,Pete and Jakes,Brookville,SoCal,Kiwi Konnection amongst a few.Check out the Alliance Vendors on here as you also get some great deals.Being on the West coast shipping was also a big consideration and Duane at Kiwi delivered it to my door so was very fortunate.

    Building a frame is not the place I'd learn my welding skills. I'd second that for kiwi konnection. They build nice looking frames and will pinch for model A's

    I got my frame from Gary Maxwell at Blackboard and I am very pleased. Talk to him about shipping. It may not be as bad as you think.

    You need a standard height grille shell.. I would check with some shops within driving distance to you.. You could put the shipping cost towards the frame and any good rod shop could fix you up.. Get a couple estimates......

    You want a standard height grill, but you need to cut down the sides so that the top of the grill is even with the cowl. The sides of the grill sit on top of the frame. Its a relatively easy operation, just trim a little at a time till it looks right.

    Ionia Hot Rod shop built my '32 frame for my '29 roadster. I am very very pleased with it.

    You may want to check with Tim Davis at Clarke Hot Rods in Daytona Beach. He's a HAMBer so you could send him a PM...
