1932 coach build
« on: October 22, 2014, 09:38:06 PM »
I'm far enough along thought I would start a build thread and let you all see where I started and where I'm at after 22 months of working a few hours a week and some weekends. These are pictures of what my car looked like when I bought it. The guy I got it from did a lot of work replacing most of the wood with steel. He had already did the structure and floor pan and made metal interior panel out of steel.

As you can see the car was pretty rotten around the bottom. I have replaced all those panels with new panels. Removed and discarded the 305 engine that he had in it, Keep the th350 transmission and had it rebuilt.

Here is frame after I removed the body and the IFS he had put in. I must say it was a mess. I looked for a replacement frame but didn't have any luck finding one close enough to go get.

I coated the frame with two coats of rust bullet and two coats of black top coat.

Very nice, I like they way you put the front suspension in.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn
