09-02-2012 08:41 PM A little more body prep....
Trying to work my way around the car,finishing up all the little things that need done before actually starting the filler work.I have had the paint stripped off it for a while now. Started going back over it,cleaning up any little surface rust and spraying some rattle can etch on it to keep it clean until I start the filler work.Of course,I ran out,but decided to keep moving,and cleaning......
Ground down the welds on the running boards at the rockers,filled the old hinge holes on the passenger door.......and a picture of it as it sits tonight.....

09-02-2012 08:32 PM Trunk Latch
Having a long weekend,I got back to work on the '38. I finally got to install the trunk latch set up. Still have to finish weld and dress the seams,but it works pretty good.Been a LONG time since this car has had all the doors,hood and trunk latches in it.

08-16-2012 09:15 PM Little progress on the '38
I have been working on the Plymouth a bit also. Finished the metal work on the running boards,the front fender to running board mounts,did the heat shrink/welding work on the front fenders.Put a little rattle can etch on the areas I finished with for the time being to keep them from rusting. Made the spider caps finally.I had bought a set,did not like how big they were,so used the mount brackets,and tig welded some smaller chrome bullets to them.Added some bullet lug nuts,and ended up with a look I wanted.going to paint the bracket itself the color the wheels will be,but leave the center bullet chrome,so it should look like its floating in the center of the bullet lugs. The yellow tape on the side is to give me an idea what it might look like with a side molding running down the side of the car.

08-16-2012 09:06 PM A little swap......
Been running around in the '48 for a while now.Running the 3 strombergs with scoops and bug domes on the carbs,I really like the look,but the lack of air cleaners has always bothered me a bit,especially when cleaning up the engine and seeing how much dirt build up there is on the scoops. While we were in Louisville at the Nationals,I came across the O'Brien Truckers booth. They had some cool finned top air cleaners for stombergs.So after thinking it over all weekend,I ended up buying a set of them. I painted them to match the valve covers.
