    Well here we go again. I sell my other coupe and I wonder around here after work and keep telling my self I’ll never do it again. A month later I’ve got my head stuck in the classifieds looking for that deal. Well here we go again. This one has had a few different people start and stop on it several times. Well I’ll put my twist on it and see if I can finish it. I’ve got it home and have started.

    Plans are to chop at least 3 inches
    Clean up finish panel work
    Steel wheels
    Sbc or what ever pops up that’s interesting. Thinking electronic fuel injection since we’ve fixing to go to 15 % ethanol

    What did it set you back? I hope to find a body and frame someday, but I have no idea what a Ford car set up is worth...

    To answer the question about how it set me back on cost. Well it’s like in high school we don’t discuss what happens on a date. it would have been a good deal if the frame would have been usable. The frame rails needed to be put in a jig and by the time I build a jig and the time put into it I just decided to go head and get one built. I started this about a month ago so here’s some more progress. Im going to try flipping the firewall

    Took the doors off yesterday for the first time. I understand why they sell oversized pins and bushing repair kits for them now. I was able to drill all of the pins out but one. That one the starter 1/8 dill broke about 1'' down. Looking for suggestions and getting out. Or should i just move on with a different hinge.

    I split the hinge tube with a cut off wheel. Heat it up and spray WD40 into as it cools. Then drive the pin out. Weld it back together and re-drill the hole for the new pin. I tried everything else known and mentioned on the HAMB and this is the best way to get out frozen pins and in the end the least amount of work.

    Cut the hidge yesterday and drove the pin right out. Welded it back up and got the doors stripped and fitted back in place.

    Well pushed it out side and stripped the paint and welded the visor in. Starting to look like I’m getting somewhere.
