35, sorry for the delay, but had to make a quick trip North to your neck of the woods for a funeral. Mac's has 16 different catalogues and you have to specify which ones you desire. You want the Ford Early V-*, 1932-1948 and the Ford Street Rod 1909-1948. The 800 number is 777-0948 and can also go online at macsautoparts.com. I am in Western N.C. about 10 hrs from Dearborn!!!. Sounds like you want a restro rod. A car that is very much origional in appearance, but with the more modern drive train, suspension and even air conditioning for comfortable cruising. If you have most of the car and you do all the work, $20,000 should do fine!!. Finding a second (Pass side tail light bracket is near impossible. You may want to forget about origional ones and go with 37 or 40 lights that are reproduced and will look good on the 35. Got you covered on the headlight buckets Send me a PM with your address and I'll put them in the mail.Also, send your email and I will give you a bunch of ideals you can play around with. It sounds like you do not have a frame so buying a ready made one with all the goodies may just be the best way in the long run asnd certainaly save you a bundle of time as well as help with the space problem!!

Hey 35Ford,

I'm doing my first project too and I basically followed the same plan pasadena set out for you, that's good advice.

The thing that has saved me the most is a digital camera and a crappy old laptop. I bring them both to the garage.

Everytime you're about to take a part out of the car, take a few pictures of it first and then after its out take 4 or 5 pictures from every angle. If your anything like me you will think to yourself, Oh I'll just remember that this peice goes here... Maybe if you're back at it the next day but a week later details get foggy.

I also take a bunch of pictures of the peices after I sand and paint them, its cool to show people before and after shots.

Also buy a couple boxes of zip lock bags, and bag and label all the screws and bulbs and misc bits. That might seem obvious but it really will save you at some point.

35, just received a small catalogue from Bob Drake today and he has just made a fibber out of me. He is now offering both right and left tail light brackets for the 35!!

When you remove the interior parts take them out the best you can to save them for templates for the new. Especially the headliner. will save you a lot of grief later. I'm working on an original 36 Ford 3 window now. Was a driver original but now a retro rod. Ray
