'28-'48 Ford Frame webbing...opinion

I had an interesting discussion today - on the merits of using full length frame webbing, especially on a fendered street rod. The guy I was talking to said it's a waste of money. Well it's too late for me and in the grand scheme of things, less then $25 on a $50K+ street rod . But with that said, and considering early Ford's, i.e.1928 to 1948, what is the general opinion? I do have a bit*h about the webbing in that since it goes UNDER Model A splash shields, does tend to put a bit of a bend at the bolt to frame holes when the fasteners are tightened, but assume that to be normal.

PS: My painted car body and assembled frame will finally meet again tomorrow Now comes the jigsaw puzzle of parts and wiring fun

The webbing is to reduce the squeaking of metal on metal so you better web up if you are building an all steel vehicle. Glass kits? Probably not required, but I would still put it in.

Trees,
I could agree with you - except in the case of most, at least '28 thru '32 Fords, there are wood blocks with a rubberized fabric filler piece to be the insulator between the frame and body.

Surprised that here weren't more opinions :eek

I consider myself a Hot Rodder ... not a restorer ...
But in a LOT of things Early Ford, a rodder is better off trying to duplicate what Henry did ... not reinvent the wheel.

I use webbing on every 32 Ford I do ... or have any help/input into. The 35 up Fords have a different body mount system from Henry ... ( rubber mounts, blocks and such ) and I will use the reproduction rubber mounts, blocks and such on them ...

Henry was a pretty smart fellow ... IMHO.

Well, I got at least a couple opinions - now, I'm going out to the shop/garage and mount the body to the chassis, using the webbing, the wood blocks with the rubber inserts - which the way I was going to do it anyhow this morning - if for no other reason that it took me several hours to get the webbing fitted, bolt holed and trimmed

But would still like others opinions, just for arguments sake the next time I see the guy.

It's on the frame - complete with webbing, blocks and rubber fillers.




..............dam' lolly column above

Now comes the fun of aligning everything (AGAIN!!!) and bolting it in place.

Denny - you're lost again (but I do know why )

It is orange - a screamer color.

I post here about the same as the other site - and yes, he does have a MAJOR problem, but I think we both know why.

Getting every thing to fit up can be a PITA...but the results are worth it..As far as the webbing I am convinced to use it...helps with squeaks and rattles and gives a more solid mounting..For us ole farm boys we can cut up an old truck mud flap or something we have laying about to use instead of the webbing..

Dave,

That looks real nice! You'll be rolling soon. I'm a little jealous!

Dave

Denny is that you? From the that other place over there? I thought you was from Florida?

Dave

I'm with you....I'm itching to drive mine for the first time. I still have a lot of mock up work to do. It definitely makes everything go a bit slower. I shouldve settled for a nine inch...instead went with a C4 IRS. I'm still battling column/brake pedal/accelerator pedal options. Just can't stand to spend the money on the 'space saver' steering. In all honesty....its what I should do if I want space for my feet. That should be interesting but I believe I can do it. I enjoy the project....but there are times I wish I was picking out my paint.

On this subject, I too will be using webbing and blocks.

Dave
