    Finally the day has come for my build thread,and to give something back to the hamb.
    thanks to everyone who has posted their hard work and wisdom on this site in the last ten years.
    this is my first scratch built rod and i have been collecting parts for about five years. here we go!

    the plan:
    my plan is to build a 5w coupe from a pickup.
    i got a 1929 chrysler pickup minus the doors, 1930 ford roadster quarters,
    i dont have the original chassis but i have got something planned of my own
    i have a rebuilt 350 sbc single rail 4 speed box and a halibrand quickchage rear end.
    i plan on quarter eliptical front suspension,39 ford axle with original spindals and radius rods.
    35 ford q1.JPG q2.JPG q3.JPG 4.JPG q5.JPG q6.JPG q7.JPG q8.JPG quarter next.JPG cowl.JPG photo.JPG transverse leaf in the rear onto the quickchange.

    the body is quite complex. the quarters are fucked and thats where ill start or should i say started
    three weeks ago,photos to follow. ive cut the pickup in the rear just below the belt line and after
    mocking the whole lot up with the ford quarters it looked like it will all work really well
    i figure its a blend between ford and chrysler thus the name the frysler any how here some pics
    lets face it youre ony reading this so you can see them.
    the photo of the good quarter is a mates so i had something to mearsure from

    Cool, I'll be watching this one. If you can get the two bodies to mate up nicely, should be really unique, and a great use of some very rough looking parts. Always cool to see guys outside the US interested in hot rods, I send a lot of old parts to Australia.

  16. Lookin good. At first i thought why isn't this dude just using a Model A cowl to match the quarters.. then realized you're in Tassie haha. I took the easy road with mine.. started with an A cowl and doors and bought Brookville steel quarters and all the rear sheet metal. Made it easy.. i'm too lazy to do rust repairs for the most part haha.

    ok so i sneaked into the shed when i should have been doing other stuff
    and cut 130mm or approx 5" out of the back window section to narrow it
    then i took 50mm or 2" off the bottom of the cowl.
    my next move will be reversing the firewall and cowl patch panels.

    The reversed firewall is a neat idea, gives more clearance without looking too fabricated. Narrowed body proportions look good too. Keep at it!

    the cowl rust repairs are done f11.JPG


    rw.JPG im struggling with the centre width where the doors
    meet the quarters,so im cutting more out of the roof section 2" but i dont want to narrow the rear window
    any more than it already is so ill cut that out first.when i chop the roof 4" ill only take 2" out of the window.

    so it cut the 2" out of the centre to narrow the rear but i think ill have to go another 2" that be a total of 9"
    out of the pickup roof.

    Well I have been a busy boy
    I've joined the cowl to rear section
    Now and weld in some sub floor
    Some thick walled inch square on the
    Bottom to create bottom body line
    Worked out nicely just had to slice it
    Every two inches.
    Chop the top 4" and made the side window I nearly have a coupe now.
    Please let me know what you think ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1411169464.405013.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1411169499.251120.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1411169520.144929.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1411169547.722215.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1411169578.651668.jpg

    So just got a few hours in on the coupe.
    I really wanted the drivers side tacked in place before I went to Chopped
    Tomorrow night on the plane can't wait
