Jay,

Glad to see you found another body. Now you can finally get back to work and get that thing on the road.

Where are you putting your board? That would have a lot to do on where to run wires. Mine I have in the trunk, no room under dash.

Teaching all you old dogs a new trick 101:

I recall last year or two ago, reading about how a husband / wife team "beat the general by drilling out all of the rivets on their frame. "Score one for ingenuity" for the Happy Couple.
Fast forward to today. Dad 'n I are putting our heads together on drilling out the numerous rivets that we applied to both the strike posts back n front on both sides in addition to the ones on the floor.

Dad sez, "Let's drill!" I said, "F'THAT!!"

I went into the basement and grabbed a box of fluted 1-1/2" fluted masonry nails and with a 4lbs hammer, blasted the bejeezus out of the rivets and then pulled them out of the frame with the fork side of a 1-2lbs hammer. All 'n all it was a good night. We're back on track, and the car goes on Thursday to the speedshop for some additional help.

I'll upload some pic later this week.

Cheers,

Jay K.

Hey All! (Rick, Randy, Bob & the rest of the crew here)

Been over at Windy City Rods & Restorations for a while and things are starting to pick up!

As of recent we split the floor so that we could glass it to the sides and ultimately to the body. The floor is still up in the air as we might go with Metal and use an adhesive or stay with fiberglass. Regardless of method, the floor will be married to the body for rigidity and structure.

Did I mention that the body will be removable?

You bet it will be!

I did my homework and we'll be making the "subframe" that marries the two door posts together and the trunk configuration to the ladder frame to allow us to make the shell removable.

As always, constructive advice is always welcome!

Jay K.

The latest photos are below:

Hiya Bob!

Yeah, I'm counting on the trunk and rear wheel skirts to sit the back side down somewhat. We're runnin' a 30" tall tire and a 26" tire in front. I like the stance, just can't stand that rear wheel gap. Perhaps we need moar tire!!

Thanks for the props, always appreciate your feedback. Any thoughts on the approach to the floor? (Glass vs. sheet metal?)

I would go with the glass, you can't get glass to stick to metal, you can get some ADT epoxy bonding adhevise, but it is right around $100.00 a quart, if you want that you can get the resin EA-605, and the harder which is, EA-605-R, you use it one to one. So for $100.00 you get two quarts. it will get so hard that 36 paper will spark it.

Me I would use the glass. I made my body so it could be removed, and I believe Randy did also.

It's been a little while since I've posted, but the doors are hung and thee floor is now a single piece and connected to the body so that it's removable. Additionally, door poppers have been ordered. Lastly, we've made a few changes to the build, but I won't reveal them just yet.

Cheers to all & I'll upload some pictures tomorrow.

Just a quick question guys,

For those of you who have the removable bodied street beasts like my Dad & I do, where are your body lift off points? Please identify/explain the location on your build.
