    Great work Dave, Nice Shop too!

    I bought my panel clamps from Gambinos. Alot cheaper than Eastwood!!!!
    by the time you scrounge up the pieces, spend the money, energy and time making them
    your better off just buying them trust me>

    Alliance discount too, I think Call Alex.

    Dave, Again the car is amazing!!!! I can't wait to see it done.

    You know this is a classic example of how terribly wrong things can go when a builder has commitment, dedication, creativity, skill and a little talent.

    tsk, tsk, tsk

    I wanna see that frame finished out. You should send randy some pics of the finished fit, too.

    Those panel clamps can be had from Harbor Freight for only a few bucks.
    Seems they sell so many that they get out of stock from time to time.
    So if you dont see any, just call back on your next visit and check again.

    Nice build!
    I have the harbor freight clamps. I wonder how many shops buy them and resell them for 5 times the cost?

    Wow!, how the time gets away from us sometimes. Had to take a job out of state and was unable to get any work done on this project for awhile, a long while, lol.

    Well any way, It was nice to be home for the holidays and get a little more accomplished.

    Cut up a perfectly good 50 ford dash:

    got the rear cage made:

    I'm really getting a lot out of your build photos, keep them coming! Car looks good, too, of course. Gary

    Forgot to add, loved your steering wheel mockup. I made one for my 37 sedan build using PVC pipe and a pizza pan. Very useful for finalizing the seats, pedals, steering, eh? Gary

    went to the pick a part and found these seats out of a kia rio, I was trying to find a narrower seat, these measure 20" across and were in really good shape for 17 bones each.

    I think i can make them work.

    That dash is killer, looks great. I like the wheel and tire combo, tail light placement really fits.
    Overall, one good looking build.
     
  24. That turned out great! I like the stance and especially the tire / wheel combo. It's refreshing to see a little rubber on the rear.

    I installed a popper on the doors, use a key fob to open, and a hidden safety latch (just in case). I am thinking the rear tires are a bit wide, thinking of going to the 12.5. Thanks all for positive feedback.
     
  26. Where did you get the lower corner patch panel or did you make it?
