Default 1930 Chevrolet Roadster Build Log

Figured I would post this, and show you what I have been up to lately. Anyways been helping my old man trying to get the car ready for summer. Its going to be a retro style hot rod, pretty much the opposite of our last one. Our last one was more of a street rod. Had independent front suspension, fuel injection, air conditioning, disc brakes, billet, etc.

Here are pictures of our old car (I miss it )

1932 Chevrolet 5 Window Coupe
-383 TPI SBC
-350 Trans
-Ford 9"
-Fat Man Fabrications Independant Front End
-Front & Rear Disc Brakes







Working on uploading pictures of the current project. Its in the fabrication and mock up stage currently. Im sure there are a few of you that understand the time and work that goes into building one.


Corey


PS - IF ITS NOT STEEL ITS NOT REAL!

Onto the current build...

Current mock up and fabrication pictures, front suspension and steering complete.





Cross members built and frame boxed.



Next task is test fitting the body, and double checking everything before we send it out for final body work and paint.

Yea the bandsaw kicks ass, and is proablly the most used tool besides the welder. Great for making brackets, tabs and cutting out boxing plates. Trying to get the thing in the shop was a f*cking task tho, that ***** is heavy.

Thanks

Sorry about the mess, but with me working 40hrs a week and dad working 50hrs + a week, we are just happy to have time to work on the car.
