Too Many Projects I finally got a trans cooler large enough to pull the camper.



We went to Des Moines, IA for the Goodguys Nationals this past weekend.

Too Many Projects Yep, had to paint the enclosures. I filled the trunk with the spare tire and traveling junk before I thought to get an installed pic...

Noise level inside the car is much lower and the stereo is much louder...

38 Coupe

Does anyone sell or fabricate the rear wheel house for 1937 or 1938 Chevrolet coupes? or am I stuck rebuilding and patching ?
Thanks

idrivejunk Go for it. Unless you think they'll get scratched up some. Then nah. That sure is a nice, neat divider panel now. Looks professional

Too Many Projects I covered the ugly black board with jute for sound and light grey naugahyde to improve the appearance in the trunk.







Now I feel compelled to cover or paint the enclosures to match.... ahhhh always making more work for myself...

7nomad8 The car and truck from '38 may look alike but NOTHING from one fits the other.

hood hinge 38 Chevy truck

My 38 didn't have an actual hinge. the inner sides rolled into one another. mine had been jumped on too many times to be useful to me so I made my own hood, and just to make it interesting, I sunk flames into the surface. Check my profile pics

I don't think the truck and car share too much of the front end parts
9 rivets each side ,overall 34 inches long

Too Many Projects I've been working to get the interior quieter for the 250 mile trip we are taking at the end of the month. I pulled the entire "interior" out to remove the bubble wrap and replace with 40 oz jute.







Fabbed up speaker enclosures from tag board to stop trunk noise from getting to the cabin.

Too Many Projects Brakes on the old trucks can be hard to come up with parts for. I have a '52 and they were rebuilt a few years before I bought it and work great. That old vacuum assist system was very effective.
