    And why some people (like myself) want to just give up and take up knitting

    Giving up should "never" be an option, getting inspiration, from talented people, is everything.
    Besides, knitting is about as hard as tig welding.:eek:

    I should try and knit myself some seat covers. That would earn me respect! haha

    I was just making jokes man. I come here for inspiration. I love Chassis build threads, makes me excited for when I build my '32 chassis for my coupe

    Amazing post, I sent this email to a few of my buddies regarding this very Model A coupe build:



    Fellas, take a look at the link below. It's a post on the HAMB of a Model A coupe with a 392 HEMI up front. The build up pictures are incredible, the fabricating work is amazing. Traditional Hot Rods aren't all cheap nasty bastads. I'd rather look at posts like this than gleaming finished cars. In the States they'd probably say 'That's Incredible, in Australia we'd just say, FUCK!

  18. Once again you have done an outstanding job and those welds are what wet dreams are made of. I have printed out the close ups of the welds so when I start teaching myself how too tig I have something to reach for. Please keep the updates coming.

    brilliant work indeed. having recently nearly finished a 32 chassis , I know the untold hours spent just working how all these pieces work together, and still look right

    this chassis will be famous, and gives me an aspirational goal, for my next one.

    Mind boggling. You are a ruler.

    Question, what are tools to either side of the "steering wheels" in this photo? Shrinker/stretcher? Hell, name all the tools along the wall if you want!:D

    Thanks man! Bitchin' work!

    Thanks for taking the time to put this post together. You're very creative and like someone had mentioned previously, it's almost a shame to cover it.

    How many hours do you have into the chassis?

    Awesome work.
