I'm in parts collecting mode, Skip. I have the Jeep block and will be getting the4.2 crankshaft in a couple weeks. Have an Anglia axle, spindles and spindle mount wheels. Also a steering box.

I'm considering parting out the Crosley for the race prepped 350 turbo trans, and the 9" rear end, which is too wide but will be okay for a while. Lots of smaller components will work too.

Just have to buy some pipe and weld 'er up.

On the Mulletmobile I did some subtracting and adding of metal on the quarter panels. They needed to contoured a bit to match the back door edge. and to provide a "nesting place" for the doors when closed.

Just when I think you're gonna throw in the towel, you start two more!

How about a real piece of trim? With your resources, I'd think you could find a ratty chunk of something with a similar profile as the cowl bead...

I was thinking along the same lines. Maybe a piece of shaped flat bar. Then a bit of something on the back edge of the door to tie into the bead on the quarter panel.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

That looks pretty cool not going all the way across the door. Yes, Skip I was thinking of flat bar and shaping it by hand.

Thanks Dr. C for the images.

Will start on the subframe tomorrow.

Yes, Tom the other project is the Jeep powered dragster that is clogging my mind.

Back to the Mulletmobile. Completed the "not pretty" subframe on the driver's side. Welded in home made patch panels on the other quarter panel and clamped it in place. Will make the subframe for the passenger side tomorrow. The pics make it look like it keeps getting wider as it goes back. It doesn't.

It's difficult making something square and true with parts that have been thrown around a junkyard for decades.

I have faith in you. (At least the floor is flat!)
