Finally got to play with the Rat Rod again after many adventures including getting bitten by a dog.

So cut away the rot under the floor frame i put in on the right side and welded the bottom of the 1 x 1 tubing. Then trimmed down to the bottom hinge in the door, and welded what i could there.

I had a little time left so put an 8 x 33 piece of 18 gauge sheet metal on the bottom of the door. I don't have a shears or a brake, so had to haggle it out with a saber saw and bend it in a vice, and beat it more or less flat. I know this ******* but it's all i have. a little bondo and primer and now i have something to build to on the inside.

If i can build something that looks like the front cab corner, i will be pretty happy.

And there is a chance of getting some real iron that is in good enough shape that i wont have to be a barbarian trying to fix...More later.

05-30-2007 02:48 PM One way to get the door closed.
I miscalculated, and the body at the door hinges is about one inch too narrow for the frame. I will have to notch and gusset the frame to make it fit. I suppose i could put on suicide doors, but i had a car with them, a stock 36 Plymouth, and i didn't them much...

Anyway, i lifted up the body to weld the bottom of the floor frame and patch up the doors. But i have to go try and sell books tonight, at the Mt. Airy Fiddle Fest. Y'all come.

Jason got the Bondo Bucket, which i think will be renamed "The Rice Rat" down on its new wheels, and mounted the steering wheel. I swapped out these two radiators, so that one got the Ford and i got the Chevie one for the Rat Rod.

Looks like the motor will fit, hope i don't have to fab a new sway bar or steering link, but there you go.

The Rat Rod will get the beer keg gas tank, and a wood pickup bed.

The neighbors came home and threw the body on the frame.. It is about 8 inches higher than it is going to be, and i think it will all fit.. I will have to rock it back and forth on the frame to do the welding, and make the body mounts, but it's a lot more stable on the frame than the cinder blocks..
