05-20-2012 07:40 PM 1930u weekend progress
Due to graduation parties, I didnít get much done on Saturday but today I did work on the old coupe. I spent a lot of time re-adjusting the body on the frame mounts. This is critical because if itís off a bit the door gaps are a mess.

I also discovered after I reset the engine rake the top of the trans was way to close to the floor pan, so I made a mini trans tunnel and did a little more bending on the shifter. All in all Iím finally happy with the trans and body profile.

05-17-2012 08:21 PM 1930u Rolled it outside
I had to clean the shop so I rolled the coupe outside tonight for a walk around look at the headers. The header work was difficult but I'm glad I went with the stainless steel.

05-15-2012 08:01 PM 1930u Steering work complete
Back in the fall I bought my steering hardware. I found a great deal on a couple of Unisteer (made in Ohio), polished stainless U-joints, a D-shaft and a Flaming River, support bearing. I got everything for $100. The U-joints are huge and are re-build able. I had previously laid out the column opening in the firewall and steering shaft angle, so I knew going in that the components would work fine.

Finished everything up tonight and it worked out great.

05-13-2012 06:13 PM 1930u on to the steering
I have to re-set and shim the body and do some final alignment work on the steering column in order to connect everything up to the Vega steering box. Found a great deal on some polished stainless steering joints and the D shaft. Should be easier than the headers.

05-13-2012 06:07 PM 1930u 392 Headers Complete
I haven't been working to much on the Plymouth but I did finish up the headers. The header work was really way outside my skill set but I made it through. Geez what a job.
