29 model a tudor

I have a 29 model A, with a 2x3 3/16 custom frame,suicide front end,4" dropped front axle. Bought this car with the floor braces cut out, to channel the body. Previous owner said to weld 3/8 thick bar stock around the inside of the body,then weld square tubing to make a frame work to screw the floor panels to,didn't get a warm fuzzy with screwing the floor panels down,then to put bar stock and welt between the two frames, bolt the bar stock to the chassis, weld the floor frame to the bar stock. I'm sure there are many different ways to do this, so I'm looking for other options. Thanks Paul

Here's a link that show's one example of how it could be done. It's not on a Model A but still a decent example. http://www.rodandcustommagazine.com/...car/index.html

An 'A' bolts through the floor board framework to the frame from the front to the rear with a separate 2 bolt bracket on each side just behind the cowl. There are wood blocks and welting to keep the squeaks and rattles to a reasonable level. I think what I would do is make up an interior frame similar to what was there originally, then build some floorboards for making the assembly reasonably solid. All this needs to be attached (welded) to the body for strength.

It sounds like you have a major project that really needs some "think through" if for no other reason then safety - yours.
