Been working on the front suspension. The car has a nova sub-frame,and the track was a bit wide. Ordered some narrowed control arms. Bolted them up to check the fit. Found I needed to raise the spring pocket bottom for the bag to sit properly. Ended up cutting the bottom of the pocket off,and flipping it over to become the new"top" for the bag to mount to.
Well it seems time is moving alot faster than I am. I seem to have missed most of the summer.....Wanted to update whats been going on. Been working on another project a bit as well as the '38. The other project is a '69 Mustang Fastback. It belongs to a friend of mine.Came from the internet,alot of new sheet metal installed. Nothing really lined up,and the front dog house did not fit. Have gotten all the basic fitting done,now working on the modifications. He is going for a pro touring style. Made some simple carboard cut out wheels to see how large a wheel would fit the look of the car.Rolled it out side to clean up the shop,and got a overall look at the progress.
Spent some more time working the tail pan,and blocking more of the car. Finally got it close enough to get more primer on the areas I have been working. Took time today to roll it out into the sunshine and look things over better. Pretty happy with the overall look so far.....
Still moving forward,spent a while sanding the back and passenger side of the '38. Did some more filler work to the tail pan. Ended up rolling it outside today to clean up the garage,and get a better look at the overall progress.
With the trunk lid on the car again,I spent a few evenings doing the basic filler work. Got to the point I thought I was getting close,rolled on some primer to get a better look. Pretty happy with it so far,need to do some finish work,including the plate recess. Added an emblem from a '37 plymouth,actually bought it because I liked the look of it.
