holy clone batman! other than the front disc brakes,it's Dreddy's car for sure..
Bitchen coupe, 29s always look so good.
Check out my coupe's transformation, http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=409232
I like the sweep....looks nice.
looks bitchin cant wait to see more
This car sits right. There are not many directions you can go when youre first getting them together. This car definitely has it's own personality and I think it's fuckin bitchin. I just put those pics up because it was funny. My car very different now Go man! Bring it to roundup and we'll get some pics of em together!
I was going to say the same thing Dreddy about going outside to see if you coupe was still there. Both cars are rad and it's a race to the finish....well maybe not but I hope someone hurrys up and gets one finished!!!
I am glad to see Mitch Approved still stands the test of time.
I agree, not enough 28/29 coupes out there. Here is mine.
was the frame bought with the z or made?.....Im looking forward to this build you and dreddy are my inspiration
my new 29
Ill have some questions from time to time
Some more progress today, motor and tranny are in:
....sorry for the crappy pics,
Some progress, finished the front and middle body mounts up:
In order to save as much headroom as possible I kinda "channeled" my body mounts:
Finally scored an upper firewall thanks to the hamb, this sucker is mint:
Body channel is done:
Wishbones tucked under cowl panel nice:
Got alternator, low mount bracket, it fits, barely:
Hopefully in the coming weeks I can get the hanging pedals, steering column in, seats, grill, etc...
Hey Nick, man you seem to be moving along rather quick and doing a great job there. Keep it up man.
Excellent build. Keep the words and photos coming.
your car is coming along great!!! YEAH COME TO THE ROUND UP!
Those swept frames are super. Car has a really good profile and stance, nice Hot Rod.
Thanks,, the sweep gives the car a real clean look I think
Great progress,Nick.Keep it up!
Nick, damn fine progress, looks bloody Great!
Great looking car..... Looks like your going to be out crusing next summer.....
I hope so, thats is the plan anyway
jesus this guy is lightning fast .....keep it up .....where did you pick the frame up from i like it alot...if you have a link to the site that would be cool thanks..

erics frames are top notch, plus a great guy, ps that coupe looks great
Progress pictures are the best, your doing just fine.
looks great keep us updated
UPDATE: Things havebeen slow around my way, the crappy weather and a cold garage. We finally had a day above freezing, for like once in the last month, so I took advantage to get a few small things done.
I got my steering column and drop in from Limeworks a couple weeks ago, BTW this stuff is top notch, I would highly recommend them:
32 Style 5" Drop:
Column and Drop: (this is the plain hotrod column, no horn):
In the car:
Got the firewall cut out: (still got some more work to do here)
Seats should be here tomorrow, plan is the get the brake/clutch pedal hoop built and try to start on some body work. Anybody have any suggestions on how to get this thing clean. I have access to media blasting around here and soda.???
Glad the column and drop got there.I knew you would like 'em.
It's fun seeing pictures of the stuff we talk about on the phone.
Did you get the seats in yet? I want to see those.
