Building A Homemade C-cab !!!

Well !!!! I started cutting the iron yesterday at around 4:oo .. This is going to be another homemade hot rod... I was going to keep this one behind the doors.. But why not let everyone see it in the making... It will not be built in 75 hours.. I will be taking this one ''ALL'' the way.. I aways thought the pizza wagon was so cool.. I was going to make one just like it, But decided to make it my own.. SOMETHING DIFFERENT.. The pizza wagon was done already.. Time for a new one.. I hope everyone enjoys the build and thread.. Feel free to speak up.. THE AMPS ARE NOW BURNING !!!

This is the body mocked up with wood... Wanted to see that everything will flow out right.. The body now can be taking down, And used as the pattern.. Cool way to cheak everything out before jumping in with both feet... I was undecided on doing it steel or glass.. I decided to go steel..

You do realize you should put this on a video and book and sell it. All the people who come here asking about frames, there it is, there it is in a nutshell.

Thanks Brian... I have though about it.. But never was able too.. I started on the frame at 4 yesterday, My friend came to my shop at 7 last night.. Man you don't fool around.. I said I will build it as fast as my money will let.. I do have other things to do also.. I have been wanting to do one like this for a long time.. So why not now... I don't let the grass grow under my feet to long.. Having fun.. That's what its all about..


Being different !!!!

Even with the frame and the wood mock-up this is a beautiful build. I know don't just speak for myself when I say that you are burning rubber on this build! I can't wait to see the finished product.

btw, I'm feeling rather motivated right now to get off my butt and get to my stuff!
