Default rolled my coupe.....

....body off the chassis /frame -am still measuring it all before it goes so I can weld up the new frame ....
quite handy as now I can stitch the new floor frame in then replace the lower body rust,
got some floor rails folded in 1.6mm

.... having sold the original running gear last weekend for $300 ,, ( im now only down $30 now (cost of gas tank) )

bargain id say ......

now have to sort out my worn spool holder in the mig ... while mrs crate is distracted with her new chickens.....

over & out

ok so yesterday I did a lilttle shopping for important car stuff ( & beer) ....

I bought a twisted wire cup brush to fit my angle grinder, great for scratching of the old paint and getting rid of surface rust ... in between welding the tub where it had cracked scratching and painting I achieved quite a bit in a couple of hours ......

Nice project
They shed, too. I found a one inch long squiggly wire imbedded in my Levies the other day. I've experienced worse. But they do work well. I used mine on that nasty brush-painted hood over the weekend. Now its a nice plane rust color inside and out.

The Plymouth is looking good.

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.
