Frames Ahoy ! second one shipped this Monday

I love getting the frames shipped out. New stack of 11' pallets picked up today
Already 1/2 way through the stack ( hey four pancakes is a large stack)
Scott down in Fresno doing up a 392 hemi powered 1930 coupe.
Love the updates, so fire off pictures when you get it.
using the banding machine to hold frame to the 2x4 support

see this one has drilled shock mounts
(someone said I was faking the pictures)

Look at these huge robot parts
the small one is 4 feet tall. really weird looking.

Frames Ahoy .Tom's 1930 pick up

Down in AZ Tom's going to redo his 1930 Ford pick up.
Built him a nice double Z'd frame.
Keep us informed buddy !
Shipped via Western Freightways again.

My Blogger on my phone keeps giving me a error message..
So email the pic's to myself,save and post..ughh !

hot rodders always have another one in mind...

Doing up a new frame for D.M. down in Beaumont TX.
Building a custom 1927 T roadster modified project.

Here is his old 1934 coupe. You can tell he has good taste in cars.
The little roadster should be a fun car to take a drive over to
Sabine Pass Battleground State Historical Park ..
Or maybe drive over to Boomtown BBQ Co. ?

"Dakota Chief" has begun

This is going to be one bad ass Model A coupe.
Doing up a new chassis design. Calling it a gasser for lack of a better name.
besides people understand the visual of what a gasser is.

The coupe has been torn down, now waiting on me to get it finished and shipped.
As for the name of the car? The owner lives in the Dakota's and this is going to be
powered by a Pontiac motor.

the start of something fast

love it when I see the project has a good work space !

the "Gold Rush" has the flavor, but just too much Las Vegas bling to it
going for more of a early 1950's vibe..

Crate balls of fire

It's like a card game..the pictures are numbered..I can't get them lined up.
This is a complete rolling chassis going to Costa Rica
That's real far away boys and girls. Had to build big sturdy box. $100.00 worth of wood.
2) then add the decking
8) front and back added
3) build the front bridge to hold frame
 1) bottom side gets nailed first

9) just a little room up front
10) no extra room in back
4) another shot of bridge, the sun was strong
5) rear supports started
had to run to store, ran out of 3" screws
8) center support added

7) no extra room, this sucker is oversized
already. It is 14 feet long
13) hope everyone who lifts this uses the
long forks. It's long and heavy !
11) double checked and then parts loaded in
6) time for the sides

12) love my impact screw gun !
12) time to close it up
double check-where's my cat?
