04-30-2011 08:51 PM 1930u Rumble Coupe
When I started the body work I decided to keep the rumble seat. This was absolutely one of the most diffcult projects on the car. The rumble lid and the body opening were destroyed but it worked out pretty well.

My next problem- I have to install a 48-52, Ford pickup truck, 20 gallon gas tank in the rumble trunk area saving room for the rumble seat.

04-30-2011 07:57 PM 1930u More parts on the way
I guess for now you could say I'm in a holding pattern waiting on a few items to arrive. Weiand sent me the wrong blower belt with my kit and I have idler pulley alignment problems. I also have to rebuild the carbs and add high flow needle and seats, stiffer power piston springs and re-jet for the blower application. Also waiting on the carb stud kits.

I intend to start the engine and break in the cam before I put the body back on.

04-30-2011 07:32 PM 1930u Grill shell
If you look at page one of my journal you will see a picture of the car I'm replicatiing. Interesting story. This picture is the Ford grill shell that they used on the 31 Plymouth PA.

The car was originally done in a deep candy brandy wine color but was changed to a candy tangerine orange in the early 80's.

04-30-2011 07:21 PM 1930u Header concepts
There are not to many options for 392 Hemi headers. Over and outside the frame designs are even harder to find. If you find them their usually in the $1000 plus range and stainless is even more. The ones that I found, I really don't like because their to symetical. I'm going to make my own using stainless. I'm in the mock up mode now. I had a few sets of old headers so I hacked them up to get a few ideas. These pics are what I came up with for the right side. I have to miss the front of the body, the oil filter and also stay away from the front wheels.
