First i sprayed the hinges for three days then i used the propain torch  then i used goo be gone and so far nothing has worked. I watched a video where a fellow used a drill and clamped the end in the drill and then spun it out  it looked so easy  oh yeh. that hasn't worked either. now i am trying heat again.On the broken hinge i just sharpened up a screw driver and opened up the pins that way i could save half a hood top  not nice.I think mother nature has had her way Way to long with this here hood.   vette59jdwl

I checked the one I'm soaking with a penetrant and its moving freely now, tomorrow I will try and remove the pins.  Vette59jdwl something that might have happened is the pins wore like lobes on a cam and are hanging up on the hinge. I will get that freight charge to New York this week for you.

Thought is was about time I come check out all your guy's builds. Awesome stuff going on here.

Looking at page 1.
I like the wood replacement in steel . Is there any other structure behind the sheet steel ?  Any other pics?

Also did you add any bracing to the fiberglass rear fenders.? I think I may go that route.

Yes there is sq. tubing behind the sheet steel around the door opening just behind the rear side windows and it's tied into the b pillar below the rear side window with a horizontal brace. Then in the doors there is two horizontal pieces running front to back. As far as the bracing the fenders I used the original front brace, under the running boards I put a 1x2 sq tubing between the running board supports to stiffen the fiberglass running boards and as far as the rear renders they are mounted like the originals fenders were.

 I have talked with some members of the car club and they tell me that they replace the original hoods with stainless steel rods.That may just be the answer.Thanks  vette59jdwl

62131  I looked and looked and then looked some more for original 32 rear fenders.I serched hi and low,and finally I found a set of 31 chevy rear fenders the only thing lacking from them that the 32 fender has is that little spear at the very rear of the fender,and if i can not make that up out of some lead or some J.B.Weld then i should not be building a 32 chevy roadster.when i am finished with these No one will be able to tell the difference.Man they want an arm and a leg for 32 rear fenders now dont they.   vette59jdwl

yes they do, that's why I chose to go fiberglass. I've been working in the garage just about every night for the last week finishing up little things. Mounted my head lights last night on the side of the radiator shell where the wire looms exit head light bar it's expensive to. Looked at a  Chevy 32 coupe in Knoxville last weekend and the owner said he used a bar off a 32 Ford and it was with in a 1/4" of fitting like the original.  I mounted my tail lights today, speaking of thing costing an arm and a leg tail light arms a $100.00 bucks a piece plus tail lights $100.00 a piece  I chose to use those real common 31 Ford ones at $24.00 a pr. looks real close just not as long as the Chevrolet ones, most people wont no the difference anyway I'll post pictures soon

Going thru ebay the other day I noticed that AMMUSCLE seller on ebay has a selection of rear fenders repo in steel for sale  1929-1930,  1931,  1932.   Gas tank cover apron for 32, front fenders and other items for open cars.

62131 I seen them for 85 dollar a pair but never for that price, and yes they would not know the difference. MY little red low rider.This lad looks at the truck and says pretty nice for a Ford i told him sure is can you guess what year and his buddy says no thats not a FORD its a silverado,so he asks me,and i say it is anything you want it to be and he says smart ass.so i just let it roll.  clueless

vette59jdwl  ps you would thinki they would ask first instead of sticking their foot in their mouth

I purchased them off Ebay, just kept watching until I found an auction that nobody was biding on, I'm going to convert them to led

What don't you like about them?   Are they chrome units?.... Maybe when you get paint on the car  they  will look better to you
  Mine look better since I got the correct  light bars ... Still trying to figure out tail light ..I have a pair of  39 ford LED units that  I was going to tunnel  (frenched in light bucket) in the fenders , but still debating on that or the way you went .....
