01-05-2012 08:40 PM Cleaning up the joint....
Spent 3 days doing the one of the tasks I was dreading the most.......grinding/dressing the roll cage welds. It was alot of work,but I like the way they are coming out.

01-05-2012 08:37 PM Adding the spare
After surviving the holidays,finally got back to the '38. Used threaded rod with a nut and washer welded to one end, and made a simple hold down for the spare tire.Due to the lack of trunk space because of the wheel tubs,the spare is actually back behind the drivers seat where the factory had originally put it.

12-04-2011 12:57 PM Rear bulk head
The car originally had a huge package tray and some shelving behind the seats.At some point in the past,I decided it was not needed any more,and I removed it. Now that just left a large opening behind the seats that goes clear into the trunk. Used some cardboard to mock up some panels and figure out how to divide the trunk from the passenger compartment. Ended up using 3/4" particle board for a bulk head. Going to use some metal tabs welded to the car to hold it in place.

12-04-2011 12:44 PM Getting up to date...
Now that puts us about up to date.When I stopped on the '38,I was building a dashboard.Those pictures can be found in entries 5 thru 16 ,so now I will just start back up with the current pictures. I had cut out a glove box door earlier,so I finished it up,adding a lock cylinder,and hinge.I also boxed in the glove box it self. Made the rear panel removable for under dash access,and mounted the air ride controls in it.

Also made a lower column cover to hide the column mounts and clean things up a bit.
