I just went and checked it out.. I see nothing wrong.. I do see it to be a very good thread to learn from.. I think it has more to do with it not being a ''REAL STEEL CAR''.. This steel is real garbage is for the birds.. Get real !!!

As far as a real 32, If someone gave me one I would still ''CUT IT UP'' !!! Nothing impresses me about a stock 32.. ''NOTHING''

Frisco --

You are completely correct. The link shouldn't have been removed.

I'm sure you understand Deuce's concerns about keeping this site more or less "PG". And, I'm sure you also understand that mods aren't perfect; without scouring through the moderation history, I think it's safe to say that this is a rare error.

Ultimately, I'm responsible for all acts of moderation on this site, and I apologize for the deletion.

To clarify: we do have a longstanding policy here of freely linking to other websites -- in addition to links placed on the forums, our Knowledge Base and list of 180+ other hotrodding forums are prime examples of that philosophy. We do draw a line at links to pornographic websites and links that are placed as part of advertising or stealth marketing campaigns. This was neither.

Thank you for stating your case so calmly, quoting from our guidelines, and pointing out previous relevant examples. Mods and admins are as imperfect as everyone else; you'll probably see the occasional similar error over time. We are all dependent upon each other to allow cool heads and analysis to prevail.

Please feel free to re-instate the link, and let's get this thread back on track.

32Essex, just out of curiosity, have you located all the steel parts for your 32 to make it real? (your opinion, not mine). I happen to own and drive a 36 5W that is all steel, but it is an improved Ford with a Chevy drive train. My 36 pick up is all steel, but using glass fenders because I did not want to do all the work to repair 4 of the 8 steel fenders I owned when I built the truck. After about 257,000 miles on this truck, I think it is pretty real. I guess what I am getting at, anyone that applies their skills to gather the parts and builds a car to their satisfaction is dealing in reality. Only the total restoration buffs can sort of stake their claim to "real" but they are just a little bit pregnant if they have used any reproduction parts.

Regardless, there is a lot of information available on this site and many others that can offer good advice and ideals when it comes to building 32 Fords, steel or glass or a mixture of both.

Very tue, but the person who started this thread did not ask for the merits of glass vs steel. This is an age old argument that comes up every so often and elicits heated responses as it is no doubt intended to do. Since your response did not contribute positively to the OP question you should limit your future responses to the question asked.

Here's another link to a 3 window build. Da34Guy's build. You might have to join the site to see the pics. Its one of those "gold chain" type sites but this guy's build is worth a look. Here's one of his roadsters. Saw this car up close at Deuce Day in Phoenix last fall.



Although he and I don't agree on painting techniques, he builds several deuces a year (by himself) and he sells them at major classic car auctions so its pretty obvious that he knows what he's talking about when it comes to deuces. As far as I can tell he only builds glass cars with bodies from N&N. I know he does post here occasionally so if you have any questions send him a PM.

Your 1/2 right Centerline.
I also build 33 -34's and do Steel also. I use N&N, Rod Bods by Elvis (Australia) Brookville, and good ole Henry stuff, depending on my customers wallet.
And I build 3 - 5 cars a year.

I stand corrected. Wondered why you use that name when I hadn't seen any pictures of 33-34's that you had done. Now I know.

One of these days when I visit my Grandkids in Dewey I hope stop by and pay you a visit.

Thanks. Daughter-in-law is due in two weeks. I'll give you a call when my new Granddaughter decides to make her appearance to see if you're home. Always like to take the opportunity to pick the brain of anyone who has a lot of experience building deuces, especially glass bodies. Hopefully I'll see you in a couple weeks.

Here's my '32, but it's not a Ford. All replacement panels were fabricated by hand, by yours truly. The frame started life as a set of '31 Chevy rails, and I boxed them and made all of the crossmembers.

It's hard to be humble when you do work like that.

Sorry Stretch and Z-28, I shouldn't have brought up the steel thing,(not the question as Z-28 stated) What I was trying to get across was that since you have the skills, you would have more pride and enjoyment from finding an old beat up and rusty 32 and doing your own thing on building it. My mistake. Sorry also to trees. I used old steel from other junk cars on my coupe, the firewall is made from a 58' Ford deck lid skin, the lower deck panel was made from the rear roof section of a 56' Pontiac 4-dr hard top, the roof insert came from a 59' Biscayne rear roof, the door skins came from a 60'Rambler's door skins, I made a set of dies and rolled the beads in the lower deck panel and a different die for the door skins, the lower radius'd corners of the lower rear skin were hand made and took 10 hrs to make. Again , sorry , didn't mean to piss off anyone.

I think what it all boils down to is we all appreciate the results of hard work and well thought out skills application. To me, it does not mater what brands, years, or what mediums are involved, but the end results is what counts. "If it ain't a Hemi, it ain't a hot rod". "If it ain't steel, it ain't real". "Just another cookie cutter SBC" "Ford in a Ford Award". There just really is no purpose served by use of these old worn out cliches.

You do not know me ... so you thinking it is ALL ABOUT steel is totally incorrect. It was about the profanity.

I have helped many members here with their " plastic " cars ( Centerline is a very noticeable example ) . I do not have anything against plastic cars. I just CHOOSE to not build them for myself.

The whole thing ( IMHO ) has been blown out of proportion because the original thread starter has not even logged back in ... in over 2 weeks. So much for helping him

32 build

Before you buy a glass body check out finished cars with a few miles on them. I have seen cracks showing up in various places. I traded a 9 inch disc rear and mustang II front with parts for 11 in brakes and $1500 for mine. It came with gas tank, 3 of the right oem door hinges, metal cowl vent, grill shell, seat frame. who ever made the molds didn't cherry out the body. I can feel ripples behing the door openings on the qtr panel. It will require a lot of work before it's ready for paint. Go with the best body you can find. It will save you money in the long run.
