Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

This is one of those numerous areas Michael Driskall eluded to in his previous post. A definite pain in the butt... lots of effort to get this area clean and even more to get it smooth for painting....

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

My gosh man! Good for you!

Ya know, you'd made a comment in an earlier post that "I am not alone".
You are correct but beyond you and I, well, we might be alone :)
I've had more than one...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Hey Michael,
You are of course correct in regard to the task of sanding these frames. I could check my notes but off the top of my head, I'd say I have well over 100 hours in this frame to date....

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Wow! I'd like to think great minds think alike but there is only one great mind at work here - yours.
So, I'll chalk this up to coincidence. Very cool Dave. Thanks for sharing!

What's your frame...

Re: Late gears in 39 Transmission

I too have installed later gear sets in to early (a '34 and a '35) cases. I never found it necessary to do any machining.
I did make an installer for the front bearing as I was unable to install the...

Tomorrow is (gloss black) paint time on the frame. I am eager.

I start by removing all components from it. Then I clean away all the...

I'm fairly certain it's 1948.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Yep, just a tad OCD.
Your words are too kind and undeserved.
Thank you. I appreciate your comments.

I'm blushing :)

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Good morning Mark.

I do most of the work. However, some things are simply out of my hands.
Plating and most machining come to mind.

I used to be able to do the engine machining when employed...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

If I recall correctly, nearly every 39 - 40 I have ever restored has had damage to that brace.
I always figured it was some "backyard hack" to install a replacement exhaust. You know... why do it...

Re: LED Tail Lights for 36 6 volts

If your grounds are good and you have the proper voltage at the lamps, you won't see a discernable difference between LED and regular filament bulbs.
I swapped one side so I could make a fair...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

I am currently preparing the frame for paint. Although a super nice frame - very straight and only a few pits, it did have the typical damage to a middle cross member.
I do repair all dings, waves,...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

You're funny! And probably a lot more (mentally) healthy :)
Me? I can't leave any of them alone. Every one must be perfect! No doubt, it's a bit of a sickness. I'm okay with that!

Re: Drag Link Rebuild?

Good morning Dave,
I have found the correct tie rods for my beloved '39 - '40 Fords are also quite elusive. I can't imagine how scarce a proper '35 rod must be!
Of all the '39 - '40's I've judged...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

I tend to be very methodical during the process of restoration. That method seemingly keeps me from having to do things twice.
I measure, then measure again, and again - whatever is necessary. I...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

As I'd said earlier, there always are "surprises" not seen upon initial inspection. This car was no different than any previously restored.
While the body shell, doors, hood, etc. are as beautiful...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Then I disassemble the entire car. Many of the small pieces get media blasted ASAP. Some will get powder finished, many more will be painted.
The body, fenders, doors, etc. get sent out for plastic...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Here's a couple of phots of the car I'd received. Upon initial inspection, it appeared to be beautiful. Isn't that often the case upon initial inspections?

Re: Drag Link Rebuild?

I didn't know what year he was working on. The simple math leaned towards '36. Still, I didn't know '35 had zero replaceable ends.
I am trying to understand how well (or not) that worked.

Thanks...
