    I thought I remember that someone manufactured a steel frame to install in a steel '32 roadster body behind the seat area. Anyone know who that was ? Thanks Terry

    Steadfast makes a set for putting a Model A body on a '32 frame. Is that what you were thinking of? Of course Brookfield makes the standard replacement parts.

    I'm talking about a steel tubing structure that adds some strength and safety to the stock steel body. Usually it would give you a location to mount safety belts etc.
     
  6. New Age Motorsports builds a nice tubular structure for their glass five window. Hope it provides some ideas for your roadster. tapatalk_1570371890253.jpeg tapatalk_1570371898342.jpeg tapatalk_1570371914544.jpeg

    That Ionia Hot Rod shop setup looks killer!

    The 'bends' in the square tubing are the key. Can they be done easily? (for you)
    If so, the fabrication is a breeze. If no wire welder, a 110 volt 150 amp welder will do it.
    Hopefully, you can find a mfr. with the pre-fitted inner frame. But it looks 'iffy'...

    Can't believe someone doesn't make one for the roadsters.
