    Well, 28/29 sedan it is! Picked up a body at the swap meet in Munro, Wa for $300. It needs lots of work, but I'm happy.

        Pics because it happened

        All packed into the pickup. even fit under the stupid flat bed cover thing. Here you can see the cowl tank, firewall and lower cowl panels. Cowl posts had been cut at the bottom of the windshield frame unfortunately. Oh well, I can find another pair.

          As you can see, I got my work cut out for me on fixing the rot. Getting a shed built over the next weekend or two to move some of the stuff out of the garage so I have room to work in there finally.

                pnw49f1, yup, that would have been my dad and I. We were parked out by the entrance of the parking lot, so we had a decent walk carrying the panels. I think my dad was a little jealous, all he scored was some interior trim pieces for his 56 chevy.

                    I have been pretty busy with the sedan. Got a bunch of patch panels made up and almost ready to start cutting into the body to weld them in. The roof sections have been a royal pain to get right. Split the bones, need to weld the bungs into the ends.

                    Decided on suicide front end, need to find 37 ford pass car spindles. I might just buy from speedway because the original set I came across was just as much as the new forgings WITH kingpins. Going with disks up front as I can get the parts at wholesale through work. Can't get the right drum parts for the 37 spindles. Oh well.

                    Going with the 454 block. My friend is hooking me up on some severely discounted machine work on the block and heads in exchange for me tracking down parts for his builds.

                    Tossing around the dilema of spring behind or over, and if I go spring behind, toss up between whether I can go scross steer or stuck with traditional steer with the bones.

                    Deciding between swept front frame or z'd up front.

                    Anyways, in between prepping other tasks today, I played around with some scrap sheet steel. The name of the game was what solution would get me a good amount of rust fast, even in color, so the aging process of the rust itself can start sooner. Pics in the morning. So far it looks like 1 cup vinegar with 16 oz hydrogen pyroxide and 2 tablespoons table salt does the trick.

                      Ohhh boy time flies!

                      I got bit by the traditional bug and went down that rabbit hole of wanting to build a nice car. So of course, everything sat untouched.

                      want to be back on the ďunder 3kĒ club. So hereís the plan:

                      I bought someone out of their 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited with a bad trans. $250 for the whole deal.

                      over the winter I rebuilt the trans with about $500 into a rebuild kit with a shift kit from trans go. Also got a rear will drive tail shaft housing from the junkyard for $50, as the Jeep was all wheel drive and has a different tail shaft housing.

                      $200 for the 28/9 Tudor body. Still need cowl posts and subfloor.

                      I have front axle and bones, canít remember exactly what I paid but I am thinking itís around $100.

                      I was given an original A frame by my neighbor along with boxing plates.

                      The plan is to yard out as much as I can from the Jeep. Since it is fuel injection, Iím going have to pull the wiring harness and ecu unless I find a cheap intake and carb.

                      what I do know for certain is right now I need front spring, front spindles and a brake kit. The rear diff has disk brakes already so Iím stoked about that.

                      I will think of more but I will start posting as I go!
