    Well Joe brought me a really nice 1930 Ford coupe body and a So Cal 32 frame . He wanted a hot rod . Motivation will come from an early olds and a 5 speed . A chop is planned as well . Heres how it all goes down ....

    STOP! Back up, "Firewall Split", I read that and didn't understand it until I looked at the photo. You split the firewall on both sids to widen the cowl and fit over the '32 chassis rather than pinch it? Bob
