Hey Bob and Randy, my Dad told the upholstery guy what we were looking for, and he did the rest!

We've always had a certain idea and objective, we knew what we were going for. We just didn't know it could be this good!

Thank you very much KG!

The interior is now done minus the carpet. The guy is very talented! He's an older gentleman in his sixties who's hands must be made of gold or something. This past week we were challenged by the height of the windshield wiper arms. That was no fun, but we came out of it with the correct resolution thanks to Grandpa Cobra on here and former SB fabricator, Mike S.

Once we go to paint, we're all going to see a Glass '34 Kustom in the 1960's Southern California Show Car style appear as that's always been the objective from the initial get go!

Cheers,

Jay K.

Hi Bob,

What Cal. Show?

Trailer queen? Heck no! I've got five YEARS of pent up anticipation that's gonna be released when I get behind the wheel of The Beast!

Drive Man, Drive!!

Hey Jay, just finished reading about your build. One heck of a job. As you may know, I'm new to the forum with the '34 coupe. I must say, I'm glad I bought it completed. It does need a few tweeks here and there that I still need to address to the forum.

I was just curious on your rear wheel size? I'm running a 255/60-15. I want to stay with the same tire and increase the rim size to fill up the well a little better. I think I could easily get by with 17s. Just curious what your running.

Anymore updates??????

Troy

Hi Troy / Rodnit!

Me n My Dad would've LOVED to buy a mid project car, but we clearly didn't know how badly we'd be in over our collective heads at the time we started as you can clearly see at the beginning of this thread!

Our rear wheel size is a 17" inch wheel with a 30" tall tire. So yes, you could run a bigger wheel in the rear wheel well as the gap looks rediculous.

Additionally, we pulled down the lip on each fender to close the gap.

Once the car is completed, I'll go over the whole build in a Q&A to be the definitive build thread for all questions regarding the Roadster.

Lastly, we built our own lower dash as the one that came with the car denies the builder to proudly display their chromed out steering column and or bangs against the knees. I'm also not a fan of any builder telling me by way of a lower dash valence, where to put my car stereo. I'll put the car stereo where I darn well please

Cheers,

Jay K.

ps. We should be going to paint shortly.

Thanks for the reply, Jay. I figured I could get a 17" in there. My gap isn't terrible, I've seen worse, but it could be better. I think a bigger rim would be just right. However, my current tires are like new. I suppose I could sell them and get a little cash.....

My AC/Heater controls are in the center of the dash. Probably where most stereos are. My stereo is between the seats with the back sticking in the trunk....

Here's a side few that shows the tire gap. I have 14" in the front....

Hi Troy,

The biggest challenge when upgrading wheels that you'll find is the jump between 14", 15" to 17". Everyone wants either 18" to 22" or 14"s & 15"s.

Jay K.

ps. That's a great lookin' car you got there!

Hey Jay,
I saw Coker tire has 17" reversed chrome. Other places I was only seeing 15". Just hate the thought of all new tires too........

Thanks for the compliment...

Awesome Thread!

Thanks for all the pics!! I own a CMC 34' Cabrio that I have owned since Feb. It was built in Southern Florida some time ago and the guy I bought it from picked it up about 8 1/2 years ago and drove it to New Orleans where I bought it. It has aged well, but like me, is showing signs of road use with chips and cracks showing up here and there! It has been a great car(also own a 37 Chevy Bus. Coupe) and more fun to drive than the Chevy. I have a few issues to fix and a couple of improvements to make it mine, but for now, I am spending a lot of time behind the wheel and lovin' it! I have an open 3:08 7.5" Mustang rear end but am narrowing a 99 8.8" 3:73 w/ a Detroit Locker with disc brakes(probably to 56") and installing late fall. Planning on changing wheels but leaving the 15" rubber in front with a 275 55 R17 on the back. Re paint with same color and new Tan top with tan leather.

Keep on keepin' on and make sure and let us know when you get it on the road!!
