Thanks Mick

I origianly never looked at anything other than 30's fords then I found what I could afoord by way of a 30's ford was rather rough so I looked urther afeild and found I loved the late 30's Chevs

the body was in storage in the roof of my parents shed (I figure I built the bugger 20 years ago so I might as well get some use out of it Laughing

I forgot I had a build thread here Smile Ive been going through my other build thread for another project and found it quite insperational so here’s some pic’s form ages ago when I did the rocker panel keep in mind its only roughed in and has a lot of work to finish it off for paint,

Now remember guys if you cant say something nice, make sure I’m not with in ear shot





its on to the floor

So its all gone



In went the new cross braces

This weekend I home ot finish cutting in the foot wells then I'm taking them to a local shop to have some swages rolled in them so they dont wop wop wop fit them then sort the seat height out and column etc so thats all good then ..........
