Anyoldchevy, more pictures!

Hey Anyoldchevy:
Got any more photos? Great looking car. What kind of front-end is that? Did you do a full clip from something? I looked all through your journal and couldn't find the details on the front-end. BTW, I agree with your wife; you're doing fine work and don't need to let a body shop maybe mess it up. Wish I could straighten metal like that.

Hey thanks for the compliments. Im not use to that. Im having a lot of fun building this 48. The front end is stock except for the disc brakes, and i cut 1 coil out of the springs which dropped it 2 inches. Like i said this is a low buck rod.

It looks a lot like the front suspension on my '49 Olds. Where did you get the discs? Are they installed on the old spindles? Your shocks stick up more than the ones on my Olds. I'd love to be able to get rid of the old shocks, kingpins and control arms on mine. Having a modern ball joint set-up would allow some more flexibility in spindles, shocks, etc. I just don't want to cut the frame for a clip or buy an MII kit.

BTW, that '41 Chrysler and '17 T are beautiful, IMO!

Nightfire, yes Mrwood is anyoldchevy. Also grouch, i think you can get the same disc setup for your 49 as i have on my 48 chevy.It uses your stock spindles, and is a real nice setup. Now i may be wrong on this, as 49 may be different.

brakes

grouch, i got my brake kit from Master Power Brakes. The complete kit was about $380.00, they also sell drop spindles if you want things a bit lower.

Thanks, I'll check those out. If I can't get the suspension I want under it, at least it will stop better.

It looks like there was a lot of woodworking on that 'T'. That's something I can understand better than sheet metal. It follows some kind of logic; you heat it, it burns. Body panels don't make any sense when you heat them. They pop first one way then the other and can't decide if they want to shrink or expand. Didn't you mention torching out some lead from that '48?

lead

I dont think i said anything about lead. I did have some problems sanding where the original lead was used to fill some seams. I could not get it smooth enough so i had to use some spot filler over it.

You're right, you didn't mention lead. I went back through the whole thing just to see. Somewhere in the journals I remember running across a 40's GM product where the guy torched about 2 pounds of lead out of the body. It stuck in my head because the photo of the blotches looked just like some on my '49. It made me wonder how in the world you could torch the lead out without warping the steel.

What kind of primer is that? epoxy? lacquer? Sitting there in gray, that old humpback really reminds me of the first car I ever remember riding in with my dad. It was gray outside and in. The only real color to the interior were the knobs, in that sort of yellowed ivory color, and the gauges with their almost black faces.

I like those Caddy tail lights and the twin antenna idea.
